The Facts: GM Tom Telesco made it clear in January that Rivers, who enters the final year of his contract, was "not going anywhere." Telesco said previously that talks had not begun, and he didn't let on during a Tuesday appearance on NFL Network if he recently talked to Rivers' representatives. Telesco, however, said he doesn't have a set schedule on when he'd like to get the business side of football taken care of when it comes to the team's franchise quarterback. "I don't really have a timetable on it," Telesco said.
Diehards Line:The GM continued: "We wanted to get through free agency, get through the draft, see where we are right now and we'll look at it from here and through the draft. But I really don't have any firm timetable on it. I'm very comfortable where we are right now. We'll talk with everybody and see where we are." The Chargers have time to address Rivers' contract situation, of course. And the team currently has the financial resources with $15 million in available salary cap space. Telesco said the Chargers believe Rivers "has a lot of good football in front of him" and the general manager indicates something will eventually get done. Now, it's a matter of when will the Chargers take care of the player who has meant so much to the organization over the past decade.
