The Facts: Two years ago, there were reports suggesting that Rivers didn't want to move his ever-growing family to Los Angeles. Then, after weeks of rumors regarding a potential trade to Tennessee, which would have put him not far from his Alabama hometown, Rivers signed a four-year, $83.25 million contract, extending his commitment to the team through 2019. If that wasn't enough, his interview from last week with XTRA 1360 in San Diego should be. If that wasn't enough, there's this: A source with knowledge of the situation says that a new report that he's not interested in moving to L.A. and that the 49ers are interested in securing his services is not true.
Diehards Line:And if that's not enough? San Diego Union-Tribune staffer Kevin Acee posted the following on his Twitter feed Tuesday: "One more time, Philip Rivers is not pushing a trade to 49ers. He has no-trade clause. He's fine with LA. From Philip." Go ahead and assume his comments from last week were honest and genuine. “I’m not gonna be there for 13 years but I’m gonna give ’em all I’ve got in the short time I have left,” Rivers said. In addition, as PFT notes, he has 35 million reasons to do that -- along with $13.5 million in previously-paid bonus money.
