Well the Chargers just acquired AJ Feely from the Miami Dolphins. This gives the Chargers an experienced third string QB, or the backup if they decide to trade Rivers at the end of the year. Although Rivers came to the Chargers with a big contract, the Chargers, should they keep him, will only pay him $650K next year, so they will remain way below the salary cap. So one choice is to keep him. However Drew Brees has played extremely well in the past two seasons and I don't think the Chargers will let him go. So I think Rivers will be on the auction block at the end of the year going to the highest bidder. The longer they wait to trade him, the less valuable he is.
