The Facts: Following up on the ongoing story. ... NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported last week that the San Diego Chargers have no intention of trading Rivers this offseason. GM Tom Telesco confirmed that stance Monday, via ESPN.com's Eric Williams, at the NFL Annual Meeting. "It's not even on our radar," Telesco said. "He's a Charger." HC Mike McCoy was just as emphatic on Tuesday, telling reporters that Rivers is "one of the best in the business."
Diehards Line: There has been chatter, given Rivers' reservations about a potential franchise move to Los Angeles and wanting to play out his contract to maintain control over his future in 2016, about the possibility of trading him. "The only thing I'm worried about is this next season. We can't worry about 2016 and beyond," McCoy added. "He's under contract for this year, and we plan on Philip Rivers retiring a Charger." We'll about that last part; but for now, it's hard to see how trading Rivers makes sense for the Chargers.
