Philip Rivers to enter free agency, officially done in Los Angeles

Philip Rivers and the Chargers have agreed to part ways, and Rivers will become a free agent in 2020.

Fantasy Impact

The writing was on the wall for the aging veteran, who led his team to a disappointing 5-11 record in 2019. Over the course of his 16-year tenure with the Chargers, Rivers earned eight Pro-Bowl selections. He compiled plenty of statistical accomplishments, passing for 59,271 yards and 397 touchdowns — both sixth-most in NFL history. He should draw interest from at least a few quarterback-needy teams, if not as a starter, then as a top-tier backup and locker-room leader.

Philip Rivers’ career as a Charger likely over, set to become a free agent

The Chargers have “moved on Philip Rivers,” per Jay Glazer of Fox Sports. He is set to become a free agent in March.

Fantasy Impact

Rivers is coming off a (5-11) record as a starter last season, where his 23 touchdowns thrown were the fewest since 2007. He also threw 20 interceptions for the third time in his career. Rivers recently moved his family from California to Florida, hinting he might sign with an East Coast team. The Chargers have Tyrod Taylor signed for 2020, and could be looking at other options to further bolster their quarterback situation. Rivers will become a free agent in March, and will look to latch onto another team.

Fantasy Impact
