Welcome to another day of NFL “silly season,” when the football world becomes inundated with numerous rumors both legit and insane.
Today, we dig into the curious case of San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers.
As everyone knows, Rivers’ time in San Diego appears to have an end in sight. With one more year on his current contract, Rivers has publically stated his wariness regarding the team’s rumored move to Los Angeles. As a result, rumors are flying fast about the Chargers looking to move him.
The popular gossip has the Chargers sending Rivers to the Tennessee Titans in exchange for their No. 2 overall pick, with which they could acquire quarterback Marcus Mariota. The former Oregon Duck recently spent a few days wining and dining with San Diego, so there’s certainly weight to this idea.
However, when discussing potential outcomes of the Rivers saga, NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal brought up another possible destination: the Cleveland Browns. Rosenthal suggested this under the consideration that San Diego is looking for multiple draft picks in return for Rivers’ services.
