General manager Tom Telesco said Wednesday the team "definitely" will work on a long-term deal for Rivers, according to U-T San Diego. Telesco reiterated that the team wants Rivers to retire as a Charger.
Despite a litany of injuries in his career, Rivers has never missed a start since being named San Diego's full-time starter in 2006. Peyton Manning and Tom Brady have proven classic pocket passers can excel late into their thirties, and you can assume Telesco and the Chargers believe Rivers has the same DNA.
Rivers is rightly at the top of San Diego's priority list.
