David Barclay, a member of PFWA tweeted that the 49ers are interested in Philip Rivers. Someone asked Chargers beat writer Kevin Acee if this is true, and Acee tweeted it was news to Rivers.

This was news to Rivers. Also, 49ers don’t have GM/coach. He has no-trade clause. Believe me, he’ll take LA over SF. https://t.co/AIAjI2rqJy

So while it is a rumor, remember Rivers does have a no trade clause.  So it will be something to keep an eye on down the road.

Today was big news for the Chargers fanbase, but the news just keeps pouring in.  Today the Chargers found their new head coach. 

According to multiple reports, the Chargers are hiring Anthony Lynn the former interim head coach of the Buffalo Bills.  Lynn is expected to keep Ken Whisenhunt as their offensive coordinator and add Gus Bradley as their defensive coordinator.

Chargers will be leaving San Diego; Team is headed to Los Angeles

 

Chargers are headed to Los Angeles

The Chargers plan to announce as early as Thursday that they are moving to Los Angeles, league sources said, ending a 55-year stint in San Diego. The franchise played its inaugural season in Los Angeles in 1960 before moving to San Diego in 1961.

The Chargers have notified NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and other league owners of their intent to move to Los Angeles for the 2017 season, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

As one league source cautioned Wednesday night, Chargers chairman Dean Spanos had yet to send a formal relocation letter to the NFL or notify public officials in Los Angeles or San Diego of the team’s move — or even tell the members of the Chargers organization about his plans, according to ESPN.

As a child my best friend was a San Diego Chargers fan.  I remember him buying Dan Fouts cards from me so I would not put them in the spokes of my bike.  Now, the San Diego Chargers will be leaving for LA.  Los Angeles will have two franchises now in the Rams and Chargers.

 

Ravens wide out says he is 89% sure he is done; Antonio Gates says he wants to return

Ravens wide out Steve Smith is calling it a career after this season

Ravens wide out Steve Smith is calling it a career after this season

Steve Smith has been a big time player since entering the league out of Utah. He is now pretty sure his time is coming to an end.

The Baltimore Ravens receiver said he’s “89 percent sure” what he’s going to do after the season. Smith said his sons still want him to play, but noted his daughter wants him home.

“Football is a conduit. It’s a platform, good and bad, but it gives you an opportunity,” a subdued Smith said. “Football’s given me probably more than I probably could give football back. For 2016-17 and beyond, it is probably my last game.

“People say, ‘come back and get some statistics.’ I got the best statistic ever: I played 16 years,” Smith said.

While Smith seems to be heading out the door, Antonio Gates the Chargers tight end says he is considering a return to San Diego… If they stay there….

“This is not the way I expected to be done,” Gates said, per Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune. “I’m definitely leaning toward coming back.”
