Philip Rivers: Retirement not an option, willing to play for another team

Whether Philip Rivers plays another game for the Los Angeles Chargers or not, he’s not ready to retire after a disappointing 2019 campaign.

Speaking to reporters after the Chargers lost to the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday to drop to 5-11 on the season, Rivers made it clear he will not retire and is willing to play for another team.

The big question is are there teams that would be eager to sign Rivers as a starter after the season he’s put together. The 38-year-old threw 20 interceptions this season and was a big reason why the Chargers lost some of their games.

The Chargers have reportedly been kicking around the idea that they will move on and start over without Rivers in 2020. Then again, given how rough it’s been being a Chargers quarterback in recent years, perhaps a chance of scenery is exactly what the grizzled vet needs to extend his career.

It’s going to be fascinating to see what happens on this front as the franchise evaluates things this offseason.
