Philip Rivers Would Be Comfortable Playing Out 2019 Without Extension 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon May 6, 2019 8:12 pm

Philip Rivers is entering the final season of his current contract, but he\'s comfortable playing out the season without an extension.

“I’m thankful for that if that opportunity comes, but I’m fine right where we are,” Rivers said. “I’m under no immediate stress or urgency to get this done. If that means playing it out, that will be fine. It really will.”

Rivers isn’t asking for any kind of long-term commitment.

“I’d be fine with it and we could look at it again in the early spring if that in fact is how it plays out,” Rivers said. “I really have no goal, or see it playing a certain way. I really don’t. I’m very at peace with where it is right now. I’m under contract this season and I’m excited for this team and our opportunities.”

Rivers has a cap hit this year of $23 million this season.
