Rivers and Chargers Agree to Part Ways

Phillip Rivers

Phillip Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers have mutually agreed to part ways. The Chargers will not re-sign him, and he will become a free agent ahead of the 2020 season.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter announced the news via Twitter on Monday afternoon.

Rivers has only ever played for the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers in his 16-year career. While never playing in a Super Bowl, he has racked up eight Pro Bowl seasons. He also led the league in passing touchdowns in 2008 and passing yards in 2010.

This move was expected, as Rivers and his family moved to Florida after the conclusion of the 2019 season. It was highly speculated he would not return to Los Angeles after that news was made public.

It is unclear what the market for a 38-year-old QB who just threw 20 interceptions might be. But some teams may be looking for a veteran presence. Tampa Bay is closest to where Rivers and his family moved, so that may be a good spot. Regardless, for the first time in his career he will not be wearing a Chargers uniform.
