A.J. Smith and Norv Turner may have collectively wasted his prime, but the Chargers apparently just found out the cost for The Great Philip Rivers to play in L.A?
The new deal, worth $83.25 million with $65 million guaranteed, gives Rivers the highest guaranteed money of any player under a current contract.
That creates some financial security for Rivers and wife Tiffany, who are expecting their eighth child.
But the move also shows Rivers is committed and believes the Chargers are built to compete for a Super Bowl now. It is a good sign for a young San Diego roster with emerging talent.
Wanna feel old? Think about this: this incoming freshman class would’ve been too young to remember much about Philip’s career at State. Point them here to educate them on why those of us who saw him, speak of him with such reverence.
