According to a report by ESPN, Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers “permanent” moved his family from San Diego, California to Florida. He is reportedly moving closer to his family, who lives in Alabama.
Rivers is a free agent. He could continue to play elsewhere in 2020, but this may be a clue for retirement, as well.
This is the first-time in his entire career that he will be able to test free agency. Rivers has spent his entire career with the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers franchise.
“What this means football-wise is to be determined, but it was time for us to move back closer to home,” Rivers said in a text message to ESPN on Sunday morning.
Rivers – who is a father of nine – has said that he plans to play in 2020. But with this move, he may target a team closer to Florida – Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins, and the Jacksonville Jaguars — to spend more time with his family.
The 38-year-old Decatur, Alabama native was the fourth overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft by the New York Giants. After being drafted by the Giants, he was traded to the Chargers in a blockbuster deal for Eli Manning.
If this last season was his last one, he went 31 of 46 for 281 yards in a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He also threw two touchdown passes and two interceptions in the 31-21 loss.
In his career, he has appeared in 228 games, including 224 starts. He has a 123-101 record as a starter.
Rivers has gone 4,908 of 7,591 for 59,271 yards. He also threw 397 touchdown passes and 198 interceptions.
