San Diego Chargers hoping for new Philip Rivers deal

The San Diego Chargers have stressed all offseason that their plan is to secure a new Philip Rivers contract that will keep the quarterback with the organization through the end of his career.

The Bolts now hope that a new long-term deal will be in place before training camp, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Monday's edition of NFL Total Access.

Rivers questioned his future with the club in March, only to acknowledge two months later that it would be "awesome" to retire with the Chargers.

Rapoport expects the Chargers to make a "big push" right before training camp, enticing Rivers with added long-term security.

Even if Rivers is in no rush to sign a new contract, he will be under center in San Diego this season with the likelihood of the franchise tag in 2016.
