Philip Rivers Signing With Tennessee Titans?
Is Philip Rivers signing with the Tennessee Titans?
After coming just one game shy of playing in the Super Bowl this year, the Titans appear interested in adding a veteran presence at quarterback.
According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, Rivers officially relocated his family this past week.
The move seemed to signal that he was done with the Los Angeles Chargers, who also expressed interest in going a different way at quarterback in 2020.
This past year, Rivers amassed 4,615 yards, 23 scores and 20 picks with LA.
The touchdowns total was his lowest in 13 years and the interceptions number was tied for a career high.
Rivers has repeatedly been linked to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Carolina Panthers throughout the offseason, but it appears the Titans are a viable contender for his services as well.
According to David Carr of the NFL Network, Tennessee might just be the perfect destination for the 38-year-old.
“I could see Rivers or Tom Brady heading to Tennessee this offseason,” he wrote.
“At this point in their respective careers, Rivers and Brady want to do one thing: hoist the Lombardi Trophy. (Obviously, Rivers is a bit more desperate on that front than his six-time champion counterpart.)
“If the Titans let Ryan Tannehill hit the market in March, they’ll have to fill a void. Rivers would be silly to not consider joining the Titans, who were on the cusp of a Super Bowl appearance this season,” he continued.
“They have an enticing group of young receivers, and the hottest running back in the game (they HAVE to re-sign him, right?!).
“Plus, Mike Vrabel’s defense is as good as it’s ever been and should give next year’s offense plenty of opportunities.”
This past season the Titans shocked the world by upsetting the New England Patriots in the AFC Wild Card round and the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Divisional Round.
Although they obviously came up short against Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, the Titans have a lot of talent and could provide Rivers with an even better situation than the one he had with the Chargers.
