Philip Rivers Not Worried About Contract

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers said he has no problem playing out the final year of his current deal in 2019. "I really have no goal, or see it playing a certain way. I really dont. Im very at peace with where it is right now. Im under contract this season and Im excited for this team and our opportunities," Rivers said. He has thrown 122 touchdowns since signing a four-year, $83.25 million deal in 2015. Despite his age, Rivers remains a strong and underrated QB1 with plenty of weapons around him. The Chargers will still probably reach an extension before Rivers hits the open market next spring.

No Timetable For Philip Rivers Extension

Los Angeles Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said there is no timetable for the team to reach a long-term contract extension with quarterback Philip Rivers. The 37-year-old will earn a base salary of $11 million in 2019 under his current contract. He led the team to a 12-4 record last year and finished with 4,308 yards passing and 32 touchdowns. The veteran signal-caller has plenty of weapons around him and should continue to be a strong midrange QB1 for those that want to wait a bit after the elite names come off the board. "I think everybody knows what our intentions are and how we feel about Phillip," Telesco said. "He's our leader, he's our quarterback."

Chargers Draft Jerry Tillery Late In First Round

The Los Angeles Chargers selected Notre Dame defensive tackle Jerry Tillery with the No. 28 overall pick of the 2019 NFL draft. Tillery has a high football IQ and is extremely athletic. The Chargers needed help on both lines, so Tillery fills a big need. There is evidence that he can be a dominant football player, but he'll need to be coached up at the next level. He has versatility and can play in either a 3-4 or 4-3 defensive scheme. The Bolts need Tillery's big body to clog up lanes and rush the passer.

Chargers Pick Up Joey Bosa's Option

The Los Angeles Chargers picked up the fifth-year option on defensive end Joey Bosa on Tuesday, a source informed of the situation told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It was the expected move for the former No. 3 overall pick in 2016 despite his injury history. Bosa has become one of the best young pass rushers in the game and has double-digit sacks the last two seasons. He'll be a high-risk, high-reward IDP targets in drafts this fall.

Travis Benjamin Agrees To Extension

The Los Angeles Chargers agreed to a one-year extension through the 2020 season with wide receiver Travis Benjamin. The deal includes a $5.5 million signing bonus, while his base salary for 2019 reduces from $5.25 million to $1 million. The deal creates $2.75 million in salary cap space. The 29-year-old had only 12 catches for 186 yards and one touchdown in 12 games for the Bolts last season, but Benjamin's role as a deep threat could increase in 2019. Still, he's a boom-or-bust fantasy option in standard-scoring leagues and not much more.
