Philip Rivers will no longer play for the Los Angeles Chargers. He moved his family away from California earlier this offseason, heading into Florida sparking speculation that he would sign with a team in the sunshine state.
The Buccaneers are interested in Rivers and the Colts have generated a ton of buzz. Now, according to Tony Pauline of ProFootballNetwork.com, the Redskins are expected to “make a bid” for the quarterback.
There has been chatter that the team isn’t pleased with Dwyane Haskins. Washington will reportedly host the top two quarterbacks in this year’s draft, Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa, on pre-draft visits. New Skins coach Ron Rivera has insisted that nothing will be handed to Haskins.
Sources tell Pauline that it would take a “massive offer” to convince Rivers to sign with the Redskins. It’s not certain what the market will look like for the 38-year-old veteran.
Rivera was previously an assistant with the Chargers while Rivers was the QB so there is some linkage between the franchise and the veteran.
