Default What To Do With Phillip Rivers?

I was just thinking about it. If Drew Brees proves not to be a one season wonder, who do you think would be interested in trading for an unproven 2 year QB with little experience and a big contract? Who would give up a first round draft pick? Detroit? I doubt Dallas will as long as Parcells is in charge.

Just a thought...

I was Detroit if average Joe flops again, but that would be 7 years in a row they spent a 1st rounder on Offence!! but then if they feel thats whats right i suppose they could well do it!

Millen and Mooch are both committed to improving that offense. Rivers could just about finish it off.

The Bucs would take a look I'm sure had he not got a fat contract.

You'd probably also be looking at a team who finish around the .500 mark or better anyway - any team who faired poorer than this I imagine would rather draft a QB than fork out for a 2 year guy who's had just as little playing time.

Could be a very small market.

Cleveland could very well be interested should he become available

Maybe the Miami Dolphins. Although they did spend a second round pick on AJ Feely, which hasn't turned out that well so far.

Drew Brees will most likely be a free agent at the end of this season as he has a one year deal right now, which is buying the Chargers time to make this decision. My guess is, if Brees does not have a great year, he leaves San Diego and winds up in Dallas (Because he is from just south of there) or Green Bay (if Favre retires). I doubt he would want to play for a losing team if he leaves San Diego as he is in the prime of his career. Detroit would be another possibility.

Would Green Bay not just stick Aaron Rodgers if Farve retires after this year?

I'd have thought a 1st round QB with 2-years experience on the bench is appealing. He should be ready to start within a few games, and the bulk of his contract expense will have gone.

Off the top of my head teams needing a long-term projected starter are, though I may have missed someone getting drafted by them:

Arizona? St Louis? Redskins? Dolphins? Browns? Chiefs? Titans?

Unless the Saints achieve something this year maybe Aaron Brooks ( and Jim Hasslett) could be gone. if that was the case then Brees or Rivers would be attractive
