Football News

His name was constantly in the headline in the days leading up to this year's draft, but it looks like quarterback Philip Rivers is set to remain with the San Diego Chargers.

Back in April, many had reported that the Chargers would look to trade their quarterback in an attempt to move higher in the draft.

It was one of the prevailing theories when everyone was trying to guess the lading spots of rookies Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota.

However the Chargers have constantly claimed that they have no intention of allowing Rivers to leave the franchise.

If they intend on it or not hoever, they may have some tough choices to make as Rivers is not set to enter the final year of his contract.

However it has been said today that the Chargers are hoping to sign their quarterback to a new contract by the start of training camp.

Rivers is the second biggest quarterback name to be having contract issues this summer with Russell Wilson also struggling to come to terms with the Seattle Seahawks.

Rivers will certainly not be leaving San Diego any time soon however with him set to start under centre once again next season.

Despite entering his final year of his contract, Rivers still expects to remain in San Diego for a minimum of two years.

Should the two parties not arrive at a new deal, Rivers is expected to get the franchize tag next year to keep him with the Bolts.

However, everyone now expects the Chargers to up their efforts to sign Rivers to a long term deal in the hopes he can help them topple the Denver Broncos next year.

Broncos going for a ride?

The Chargers look set to be in one of the more interesting divisions next season with both the Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs set for a make over.

The Broncos are expected to convert from a mostly passing team to a more balanced offense with the loss of Julius Thomas and the emergence of runningback C.J. Anderson.

The Chiefs meanwhile attempted to solve their problems at wide receiver by signing Jeremy Maclin, formerly of the Philadelphia Eagles.
