Veteran Philip Rivers says he has “every intention to be the Chargers quarterback in 2020” according to an interview on Xtra 1360.
Rivers and the Chargers are likely eyeing a contract extension in the near future, but he said he is not under immediate stress or urgency to reach a new deal. If an agreement isn’t reached, Rivers will play out the final year of his contract in 2019 while earning $19 million, but it would be shocking if the two parties don’t reach a deal before he becomes a free agent.
The 37-year-old Rivers has been the Chargers’ starting quarterback since 2006 and has not miss a single game in 13 seasons. 2018 was another great year for him as he threw for 4308 yards, 32 touchdowns to only 12 interceptions, and a stellar completion percentage of 68.3.
