    Rivers a free agnet?

    His contract runs through 2010 and what I read is he can void the last year if he wants to. Maybe this writer knows something I haven't read? My guess is PR still has a few years remaining on his present contract. I'd hate to see us starting over with QB training - and LT would probably throw in the towel if it's so.

    Rivers a free agnet?

    Acee addressed this recently in his mailbag:

    Question
    Kevin: A 12 Dec column by Jay Glazer ranks the top 2008 NFL free agents and contains this entry "12. Chargers QB Philip Rivers — Rivers is able to void his deal due to playing-time incentives he reached last year. There is a huge void of good QBs in this league and despite an inconsistent season, Rivers has shown enough to be a solid starter. Considering guys like Rex Grossman and Daunte Culpepper highlight, or lowlight, the list of UFAs at the position, Rivers' stock soars on our list."

    Is this accurate and, if so, why haven't we read about itin the Union?


    Gary Greksouk / Ashland, Oregon

    Answer

    I wrote in the offseason about this and that it was a moot point since the Chargers hold the option for '08 and '09 and would pay the money to keep him.

    Rivers isn't going anywhere.

    The understanding i had back in 2005 was Rivers didnt meet the playing time to void his contract to a 5 year deal his first two years so it will remain a 6 year deal.

    I dont know where this guy is coming up with that stuff.

    So Rivers has an option to void, but the team holds two options to sign him. He won't be a FA.

    Looks like all the guys in the crowd are "questionable". The dude on the left looks like Freddie Kreuger.

    This must've been a hooker convention or something.

    I looked in this roomies room once for a bill that he was supposed to pay and found a credit card bill for over $4,000. It was all phone sex charges. :lol: Swear to God. :lol:

    The guy honestly was offended when I kicked him out because I asked my GF (now wife) to move in. He's still a bro, but me and the little lady always get a good laugh about him when his name comes up. :yes:
