There were rumors in the off-season that the San Diego Chargers were in negotiations with teams about dealing veteran QB Philip Rivers. After the team decided to stick with the former first round pick, things began to look better for Rivers. Rivers talked to the media this week saying he hopes he remains with the team for the rest of his career.
“You put in 11 years here, and we haven’t accomplished the ultimate goal,” Rivers said, via ESPN.com. “There’s been a lot of great memories, and a lot of awesome games, seasons, friendships, training camps and on and on. So that would be awesome [to stay]. Obviously, as players none of can choose how we all want it to work out. But if that’s how it works out, I’d be fired up.”
