Breaking: Los Angeles Chargers and QB Philip Rivers have mutually agreed that Rivers will enter free agency and not return to the team for the 2020 season.
The #Chargers had Drew Brees, Philip Rivers, LaDainian Tomlinson, Antonio Gates, Vincent Jackson, Darren Sproles, Shawne Merriman, Eric Weddle, Antonio Cromartie, etc.
Never made it to the Super Bowl.
A refresher on quarterbacks scheduled to be free agents in March:
* Tom Brady
* Drew Brees
* Dak Prescott
* Ryan Tannehill
* Philip Rivers
* Jameis Winston
* Teddy Bridgewater
* Marcus Mariota
* Case Keenum
“In anything you do, it’s the people you do it with that make it special. There are so many relationships and memories with coaches, support staff and teammates that will last forever, and for that I am so thankful."

Philip Rivers gave the @Chargers
everything he had.
This tribute video 🙏
Philip Rivers was the #Chargers starting QB for 14 seasons and never missed a game during that stretch. 224 consecutive starts.
He tore his ACL in the '07 Divisional Round and still played in the Championship Game vs. the #Patriots.
A true competitor.
The end of an era.
After 16 years, Philip Rivers and the Chargers have mutually agreed to part ways. (via @Chargers
Philip Rivers offers something no other free agent QB can, he can provide an entire 2nd string offense with just his family
Philip Rivers’ tenure with the Chargers:
* 59,271 passing yards (franchise record)
* 397 passing TD (franchise record)
* Led team to 123 wins
* 8x Pro Bowler
* 224 straight starts (ZERO ever missed)
* 2013 NFL Comeback Player of the Year
A Bolts legend forever.
Since it is the end of an era I put together a quick tribute video for Philip Rivers and all the great times that we had this past season.
Philip Rivers is forever a @Chargers
Giants give retiring Eli Manning a hero’s sendoff. Chargers give Philip Rivers a quote in a tweet. Thinking Eli feels good about what happened on draft day in 2004. https://t.co/mCs2VdCHMU
Imagine the Chargers kept Eli. The Giants drafted Big Ben. And the Steelers had Philip Rivers.
What would the Super Bowl count be?
Big Ben 2 (not the ones you think)

Don’t even get started on Rivers, Broncos Country. Talked to Broncos high-ranking source: Team won’t be in on Philip Rivers. Elway/Fangio moving forward with Drew Lock. #9sports
Path now cleared for Patriots QB Tom Brady and Chargers QB Philip Rivers to hit the market. And the Titans and Bucs still have decisions to make on their QBs. LOTS of moving parts.
All that = A potentially WILD March ahead.
Philip Rivers has the most wins, passing touchdowns and passing yards of any QB to not appear in a Super Bowl.
Easily my favorite Philip Rivers moment when this team won against the Bengals on the road in the playoffs and Rivers giving this speech after the game https://t.co/jiPHy8ZeLs
#Chargers fans, reply here with your favorite Philip Rivers memory.
: Summing up an inevitable but noteworthy day for the #Chargers, who move on from Philip Rivers and should be in the mix for Tom Brady.
Philip Rivers vs the #Chiefs
7,509 passing yds
41 Passing TDs
With Philip Rivers family not Charger fans anymore, the @Chargers
have lost 75% of their fan base
If the next stop for Philip Rivers is Indy, the #Colts may have a decision to make with Jacoby Brissett. His $7M roster bonus is already fully guaranteed, but it’s not paid until March 22nd. Trading him before that clears $15.8M of cap for the Colts.
