Would Philip Rivers retire if the Chargers moved to LA?

Could Philip Rivers retire?

Philip Rivers getting traded is sounding more and more like a reality.  There have been reports that Rivers is not happy with the team eventually moving to Los Angeles, and according to UT-San Diego, Rivers could be contemplating retirement if the team does in fact head to LA.  

When Philip Rivers was asked in July 2011 if it was good for the NFL that the new collective bargaining pact, just reached, would ensure labor peace for 10 years.

Rivers said he didn’t know how the deal would turn out, but he was sure he wouldn’t be playing football in 10 years.

Four years later, age 33 and coming off two seasons that either re-affirmed or re-established him as a top-10 quarterback, he seems capable of several more seasons.

This makes you wonder if Rivers would be willing to retire if the team does in fact move to LA?  I can see the Titans trading for Rivers, this is just a matter of time in my opinion before it happens.  It sounds like Rivers is ready for a change of scenery.
