Monday August 17th, 2015

Quarterback Philip Rivers' new four-year contract extension with the San Diego Chargers includes a no-trade clause, according to ESPN's Ed Werder.

On Saturday, Rivers signed a contract extension that will have him in a Chargers uniform through 2019. 

Rivers, 33, has spent his entire career with the Chargers since being acquired in a 2004 draft-day deal that sent Eli Manning to the Giants. Last season he threw for 4,286 yards and completed 66.5% of his passes, adding 31 touchdowns and 18 interceptions.

In 11 NFL seasons, Rivers has amassed 36,655 yards and completed 64.7% of his passes. He's thrown 252 career touchdowns to 122 interceptions.

His third touchdown of the 2015 season will make him the franchise leader. Rivers already holds the team's record for the most wins with his 88 victories.
