ESPN says: Chicago Bears
Bolt Beat says: Chargers or nowhere
The Tennessee Titans are a team often linked to Rivers but the Bears is a new one… and a laughable one. Why the Bears? Because Mitch Trubisky is their quarterback?
Not many teams are going to be looking to bring in a 38-year old quarterback who seems to be on the decline. The Bears will pick up the fifth-year option on Trubisky and if they don’t roll with him as the starter, he will battle it out with a younger guy who could at least bridge the team to the next big draft pick.
For Rivers, it’s unlikely he wants to continue his career anywhere but Los Angeles, particularly if his level of play continues on the line it’s been on.

Fans and analysts are wondering where Rivers will be able to play after this season. Will it be in Los Angeles? Will it be somewhere else?
Would it be that hard to believe that he’s satisfied with the run he has had and is ready to call it a career?
Sure, it’s sad that he never reached the ultimate goal of the Super Bowl, but Rivers is in the top 10 in all the major passing categories and is a surefire Hall of Famer.
He’s not going to play for the Bears and he’s not going to play for any other team that doesn’t have a lightning bolt on their helmets.
Rivers wants to play for the Chargers and if he’s not there, he’ll be at home enjoying his family and leaving his playing days behind him.
