    The Chargers' acquisition of backup quarterback A.J. Feeley could indicate they're willing to part with one of their other quarterbacks next offseason. Just not the one most people believe.

    San Diego could be willing to part with Drew Brees, not Philip Rivers, after the season, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. Brees, the Chargers' starter, does not have a contract for 2006. The Jets would be interested because Brees, 26, has a strong arm and can run.

    If the Chargers decide to go with Rivers, whom they've given $14.5 million in bonuses, the likely approach would be to franchise Brees and trade him. The Jets would then have to sign Brees to a contract so big, he'd have to be considered the starter.</blockquote>
