Rivers’s big family (seven children) and humble roots from the South have been well documented and he does not know if he will be open to starting anew in a location he does not get to decide on.
“What we’ve established here with my growing family is hard to recreate,” Rivers said Tuesday to U-T San Diego. “It’s hard to up and recreate that. I know that moves are part of life. But that certainly is fair to say that (not being sold on moving to Los Angeles) is part of it. The good thing is I’m not under contract in a year where we’d potentially be in Los Angeles.”
He mentioned, though, that he has every intention of playing his contract out this season and does not foresee anything changing that.
Rivers, 33, played through well publicized back and rib injuries last season but is starting to feel refreshed just a couple months into the offseason.
“I’m excited. I feel like I have a lot of good years left,” Rivers said to U-T San Diego.
In nine seasons as the Chargers quarterback he has led the team to the playoffs five times and his streak of 144 consecutive starts is the second longest active streak in the NFL.
