Philip Rivers will be officially signing his contract extension with the San Diego Chargers today and according to NFL.com the deal includes a no-trade clause. San Diego will be the likely destination that Philip will end his career. He will play out that contract with the Chargers until 2019.
During this last offseason, rumors were swirling about the Chargers shopping Philip Rivers in order to draft Marcus Mariota. That trade never took place and all those rumors won’t have to be swirling ever again.
The Chargers will not have to worry about the quarterback position for a while and can focus on building a powerful roster around Philip. The offense around Philip is young and talented. The team looks to build through the NFL draft and has been building up the offensive line to allow Philip to do his magic.
The team will be looking for another talented playmaker in the coming offseason. Antonio Gates and Malcom Floyd likely will not be with the team next season and the Chargers will need to find some talent to fill their spots on the roster. Ladarius Green could be one of the young guys to step up in the passing game, but the team still could use another talent at receiver.
