Chargers moving on from Philip Rivers after 16 years

Recommended Posts

It looks like the thread about him moving his family from SD to Florida got locked or i would have tacked this on there, as there was discussion in that thread about him playing elsewhere next year. I don’t think he will want to retire. 
 

 

I believe they will take a QB at 6 (or try to move up higher if needed to take one) which helps push the non QBs down

He can sign with Tampa Bay and fight it out with Jameis to see who can throw the most picks. 😇

Bruce Arians might the perfect coach for Rivers right now...

Would the Bears be a possibility for Rivers?

 

I have been reading that they arent ready to give up on Trubisky yet but maybe they should..

I would think he is done. I mean he would not move from San Diego and commuted back and forth every day to be with his family..cant see why that would change now.

Tom Brady to Chargers.  That’s been my prediction for long time, and I’m sticking to it

Wow, didn’t think they would force him out.

 

Bears should be all over this...and wouldn’t be surprised to see Bucs, Colts, Broncos and Jags show interest either.

Could do a lot worse as a HC than Arians. Bruce is a great HC. Love listening to that guy talk.

That's sad he really seemed to burn out last playoffs which was probably his last shot at a SB.

If the rumors of where he moved to are true, Nashville, New Orleans, and Atlanta are all closer to his new home than the Florida teams. He's not really close to any NFL team. Would be like driving in from NYC to play for the Bills every day.

Do people remember that this is exactly how Jimbo’s career ended? Bills announced that they would not be re-signing him.

Colts/Indianapolis seem like a perfect fit for his football/personality.

Yes and frankly there is no easy way for the Chargers to do this unless he retires. He’s likely not doing that and they need to rip the band aid off at some point. They are moving into the new stadium this year, they feel its  time with his contract up and his stats were very deceiving last year. He can’t move and throws too many picks.

Wonder what the Chargers do now

 

Tyrods time to shine??
Time for the Bridgewater or Dalton show in La?
Will Brady try out the best cost?
Will Herbert be around for pick #6? Or does Miami take him at #5?

if he’s up in the panhandle then yes but Atlanta certainly isn’t an option. If Brees comes back NO is out as well. Tenn seems a possibilty.

I think they will keep Tyrod and draft Herbert or Tua.

What about Miami? Even though he is on the downside of his career he would still be an upgrade over Fitz. Rosen looks like he is heading towards bust territory if he couldn't beat out Fitz last season. The Fins could use a vet to hold down the fort for a year or two until they get their future franchise QB. Who knows if they hit on their draft picks and with Rivers as QB they might be competitive. Their coach did a good job last season considering the talent on the roster.

Yeah, he's supposedly up in the NW tip of Florida. Point being, there isn't a team that makes sense geographically speaking. Seems like he's likely not going to live at home next season or he'll be retiring from football.

Is Rivers a cold weather QB after 16 years in San Diego/So Cal?

Well yes if he plays for anyone he’s not commuting in from the florida-alabama line week in and week out. It’s certainly easier to get back to homebase occasionally from florida or louisiana than LA or Boston though. 
 

From his statements it seems like he wants to play, so if I had to bet I’d say Tampa.

Its too perfect of an idea for Brady to go there. Play in his home state, anchor the LA fan base to being Charger fans in the new stadium. And Brady then mentors whoever the new guy or young guy would be there. Trying not to get too excited.
