According to La Canfora, Chargers want Rivers around beyond 2015, which happens to be the final year of his current contract.
Addressing Rivers after the season would prevent him from enter a “lame duck” year, but it looks like he’ll have to play out season before any talks get underway.
Rivers, 32, is entering the sixth year of his seven-year, $98.25 million contract that includes $38.15 million guaranteed. He has base salaries of 13.8 million and $15.75 million coming his way over the next two years to go along with cap figures of $16,666,666 and $17,416,668.
In his first year under HC Mike McCoy, Rivers threw for 4,478 yards while completing 69.5 percent of his passes to go along with 32 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Rivers also walked away with the Comeback Player of the Year award.
