McCoy: Philip Rivers will be a Charger until retirement
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) Chargers coach Mike McCoy said that the team has no intention of cutting ties with quarterback Philip Rivers.
Speaking to the media at the NFL Owners Meetings, McCoy said Rivers was "one of the best in the business", per NFL.com.
"The only thing I'm worried about is this next season. We can't worry about 2016 and beyond," McCoy said. "He's under contract for this year, and we plan on Philip Rivers retiring a Charger."
QB Philip Rivers unsure of long-term future with Chargers
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(3/17/15) Quarterback Philip Rivers is contemplating that 2015 could be his last season with the Chargers, he told the UT San Diego. When asked if he will play out his current contract without agreeing to extend with the team, he said, "Yes."
“What I can control and all I know as of today, I am signed up for one more year,” he said. “I guess things could change, but with all the uncertainty in many aspects, I don’t see it changing before camp gets here, and when camp gets here I’m even more certain to play it out.”
With the uncertainty surrounding the Chargers possibly moving to Los Angeles, Rivers was rather frank about the difficulty recreating what he and his family has established in San Diego.
“What we’ve established here with my growing family is hard to recreate,” he said. “It’s hard to up and recreate that. I know that moves are part of life. But that certainly is fair to say that (not being sold on moving to Los Angeles) is part of it. The good thing is I’m not under contract in a year where we’d potentially be in Los Angeles.”
The 12-year-veteran has started all 16 games each season for the Chargers since 2006, his first year as a starter for the team. He currently has started 144 consecutive games, second-longest in the NFL behind Eli Manning, and thrown for 36,655 yards with 252 touchdowns and 122 interceptions over his career.
Chargers' Philip Rivers will not need back surgery
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/9/15) Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers will not need surgery on his back, according to 101 KGB FM.
Rivers told the radio station, "At this point, the back injury is not requiring surgery. We'll kind of revisit it in a month or so. But everything is improving. I'm back to my regular workouts and running around."
Rivers dealt with a bulging disk in his back down the stretch, which impacted his play. He did not miss a game due to the issue.
The 33-year-old Rivers is set to enter the final season of his contract in 2015. He'll make $15.57 million next year. Rivers is coming off a season in which he threw for 4,286 yards and 31 touchdowns.
Chargers' Philip Rivers calls reports of bulging disk 'not accurate'
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/29/14) Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers declined to convey the full nature of his injuries, calling previous reports of him dealing with a bulging disk, "not accurate," U-T San Diego reports.
However, Rivers did not rule out having surgery on the back, which is a possibility this offseason.
Rivers did not appear to be himself toward the end of the season due to an assortment of injuries. He threw for 2,213 yards with 20 touchdowns and five interceptions through the first eight games of the season. In the final eight games, he compiled 2,073 yards, 11 touchdowns and 13 interception.
Philip Rivers throws two interceptions in season-ending loss to Chiefs
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(12/28/14) Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers went 20 for 34 for 291 yards and two interceptions in San Diego's 19-7 loss to the Chiefs.
With San Diego down 16-7 near the end of the first half, Rivers tried to connect with wide receiver Eddie Royal, but was picked off by Kurt Coleman.
His last interceptions came in the final seconds with the Chargers trying to add a late touchdown.
Rivers finishes the year over 4,000 passing yards for the sixth time in his career.
|Philip Rivers was one of the best surprises in 2013 when he finished the year as the No. 4 Fantasy quarterback behind Peyton Manning, Drew Brees and Andy Dalton. Rivers passed for 4,478 yards on 70 percent completions with 32 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. It was his best season since 2010, reminding people he could still be a standout at the position. His finish as a top five Fantasy passer was misleading since he had 20 or more Fantasy points in four of his first five games and just four of those performances in his final 11. Rivers is more of a No. 2 Fantasy quarterback than a No. 1 option, and the Chargers were at their best in 2013 when they were running at a high level. We would only draft Rivers with a late-round pick and he could easily be a spot starter when he's playing well.
