NFL Trade Rumors:
Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Times believes that the 2013 season could be a make it or break it campaign for Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers.
“No one will say it, but I think that 2013 is the final audition of Philip Rivers,” Acee said on NFL Network’s “Path to the Draft.”
Acee also mentioned that the Chargers unwillingness to restructure Rivers’ contract is a sign that they’re unwilling to commit to him in the long-run.
Rivers, 31, has a $17.1 million cap figure for the 2013 season, while the Chargers currently have close to $5.9 million in total cap space, according to numbers provided by the NFLPA. Rivers is still under contract for another three years after signing a seven-year, $98.25 million deal back in 2009.
Rivers, who will be entering his tenth season with San Diego, has never fully delivered and taken the Bolts to the promise land. Since taking over for Drew Brees at the start of the 2006 season, Rivers has lead the Chargers to four consecutive AFC West championship

The San Diego Chargers continue to be active, but low key in free agency. As reported by Adam Scheter, the Chargers have signed wide receivers Deon Butler and Dan DePalma as well as cornerback Cornelius Brown.

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union Tribune mentions that the Chargers would like to extend the contract DE Corey Liuget “sooner than later.”
San Diego still has two years to decide what they’re going to do regarding Liuget, but addressing the contracts of young cornerstone players early on tends to payoff in the long-run, assuming of course that their asking price is reasonable...
