NFL Notes: Philip Rivers, Cowboys, Lions, Raiders, & Vikings

Philip Rivers

Ian Rapoport mentioned on Tuesday’s “Path To The Draft” that even though the Chargers have said that don’t want to trade QB Philip Rivers, the team has yet to say they will not make him available trade, per Chris Wesseling.

There has been talk that the Titans could be interested in trading for Rivers, as they could offer their No. 2 overall pick, which would give the Chargers the ability to take either Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota as a replacement.

Rapoport added that the asking price for Rivers would likely be very steep.

“What would it take for the Titans to actually trade for Philip Rivers? A LOT. Multiple first round picks,” Rapoport said, via the NFL Network.

This is, of course, a highly speculative idea, but it’s at least something to watch in the coming weeks.

Lions

Raiders

The Raiders are among the teams working to get above the cap floor of 89 percent of the total salary cap from 2013-16.

“It’s not a major concern, but we have to plan well how we do things,” GM Reggie McKenzie told Scott Bair of CSN Bay Area on Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings. “I don’t want to be in a position (with the cap) like I was in 2012. We’ll map it out and do the best we can to meet all the requirements. We want to make sure the Raiders are in good standing and are spending money on good players.

Vikings

  • Darren Wolfson reports that the Vikings have lined up a visit with Minnesota TE Maxx Williams.
