This fits with a report from Michael Gehlken of the Union-Tribune who mentioned that the Chargers have not discussed a Rivers trade with the Titans “at all,” despite a ton of speculation that San Diego could be looking to trade up to No. 2 overall.
If any team were to trade up to No. 2 overall with the Titans, you would have to think that the Chargers could make them the most attractive offer if they were willing to include Rivers, but it sounds like things would have to change in the coming days for this to actually be a possibility.
Rivers, 33, is entering the final year of his seven-year, $98.25 million contract that included $38.15 million guaranteed. He stands to make a base salary of $15.57 million for the 2015 season.
Despite dealing with some injuries last year, Rivers was able to put together another solid season for the Chargers in which he threw for 4,286 yards while completing 66.5 percent of his passes to go along with 31 touchdowns and 18 interceptions.
Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 7 quarterback out of 39 qualifying players.
