Should the Lions Pursue QB Philip Rivers?

John Maakaron

According to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, the Los Angeles Chargers have decided to move on from quarterback Philip Rivers.

Rivers has been with the Chargers organization since 2004. When the new league year begins in March, Rivers' contract will expire.  

As a result of his 16 seasons playing in San Diego, he now holds many of the organizations passing records.

But in the past few seasons, Rivers play has declined steadily.

In 2019, he threw 23 touchdowns and 20 interceptions.

While Rivers may still have hopes of joining another organization as a starter, he may find the market for his services as a starter to be quite slim. 

He may just have to settle signing with another franchise to be a backup. 

Could Detroit be that franchise? 

Matthew Stafford is coming off of two back injuries, and the organization may covet an affordable veteran quarterback.

Do you think Detroit should reach out and inquire about signing Philip Rivers?

No Never,we already have a River,Detroit River 5 Old Man River,that would be fine if fans want to get to the Playoffs 1 year then Disney world the next,Rivers best days are gone,least Mathew has more years left if he chooses,River if anything is to stay in AFC where he is least familiar with the teams & let's face it he was a San Diego Charger not an LA,It's cheaper to keep her but not Phillip Rivers
