Chargers “Intent” On Signing Philip Rivers To An Extension, Met With Him Last Week

Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports that the Chargers met with QB Philip Rivers‘ representatives last week to discuss a long-term contract extension.

  • According to Garafolo, San Diego remains “intent” on getting an agreement in place with Rivers.
  • Ian Rapoport adds that while the two sides met in recent days, he’s not signing an extension right now.
  • Rapoport adds that the Chargers have no plans to trade him.

All indications from the Chargers have been that they plan to have Rivers for the foreseeable future. However, even public statements haven’t been able to quell the trade rumors that he could be dealt to the Titans for the No. 2 overall pick.

Alex Flanagan reported Monday that the Chargers have yet to speak to any team about possibly trading Rivers.

On Tuesday, Titans GM Ruston Webster confirmed that hasn’t spoken to the Chargers regarding Rivers, so we’ll have to see if contract talks pick up as the season approaches.

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.
