News alert: Philip Rivers will not play for the Los Angeles Chargers in 2020. He spent 16 years with the organization. This is the end of an era. With Eli Manning retiring, and Rivers leaving the Chargers, it’s a new football world indeed.
With Rivers on the market, this could employ Jerry Jones with new ammunition at the negotiating table. Rivers, a former first-round pick in 2004, turned 38 last December.
The North Carolina State product is an eight-time Pro Bowler. For his career, he has nearly 5,000 pass completions, a 64.7 completion percentage, a 397-198 touchdown to interception ratio, and a passer rating of 95.1 (10th all-time on the list).
Unlike Manning, who Rivers is often compared to, the biggest difference is a Super Bowl ring. A Rivers to Dallas Cowboys proposal would be mutually beneficial for both parties.
Rivers would get another aim at a Super Bowl title. The Cowboys get a proven winner, leadership, and best of all, someone who could be the face of the franchise.
