Philip Rivers could be a target for the Tennessee Titans

Published 1 Comments

The Tennessee Titans head into the build up for the 2015 NFL Draft in an incredibly interesting position.

The Titans hold the second overall pick after a disastrous 2014 season that saw them go through three quarterbacks and finish with an incredibly poor record of 2-14. 

Coming into the 2015 season, it would seem that to the average fan looking from the outside in that Zach Metteneberger will be the starter for the Titans next year. However, things aren't all that clear and new rumors today have linked Tennessee to San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers.

According to a report from David Climer of the Tennessean, there is an "intriguing possibility" that the Titans could have serious thoughts about bringing in the five-time Pro Bowler.

"Rivers is hinting that he plans to play out his contract with San Diego in the upcoming season. The idea that the Chargers could lose him...could make Rivers available in the near term," Climer wrote.

"While Chargers brass deny Rivers is in play, I'm not so sure. There are reports that San Diego has scheduled a private workout for Mariota in a couple of weeks. What gives? Mariota isn't going to be there if San Diego stands pat at its No. 17 slot in the first round. The Chargers might be trying to trade up...Would the Titans listen? They should," he added.

A trade between the Titans and the Chargers for that number two spot would certainly be a shock, but when you've got two potentially top class quarterback's in a draft class anything can happen.

There's at least five or six teams in that draft who are desperate to try and land either Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota, and one of them may decide to give up a lot to try and get one of them. So when rumors like this emerge you can't be too hasty to dismiss them, especially when there are whispers of discontent from Rivers' camp.
