Chargers QB Philip Rivers said he would like to play in the organization’s new Inglewood stadium, but admits he is taking things “one year at a time” given his contract is expiring after the season.
“I think that is my desire,” Rivers said, via Eric D. Williams of ESPN. “But I do think that it only seems right to say, ‘All right, let’s take a deep breath and regroup.’ I kept saying, a couple years, a couple years or a handful, and then I went to the ‘one year at a time.’ And I think that’s where it is, and that only makes sense when your contract is up and you’re going to be 38 here in a few weeks.”
Rivers added he intends to play next year, but plans to evaluate himself and his family situation before making any decisions.
“So I’m just going to have kind of a self and family evaluation of it all, and also know that it’s not solely my decision. If you would’ve asked me and I had two years left [on a contract], I would say, ‘Of course I’m going to play.’ I’m not turning in on them, you know what I mean? So I think it only makes sense. I don’t think this is breaking news, but I think that’s the prudent thing to do and the most reasonable thing. But my intention certainly is to be playing in 2020.”
