If the San Diego Chargers do move to Los Angeles they very likely will do so without quarterback Philip Rivers.

Rivers has informed the team that he is not willing to play in the city of Los Angeles which is roughly two hours north of San Diego.

The 33-year-old Rivers has played his entire NFL career with the Chargers since joining the NFL back in 2004. Early in the 2014 season there was talk that Rivers was an MVP candidate until some injuries wore him down. He has played all 16 games since the 2006 season and finished last year with 4,286 yards passing to go with a 31:18 touchdown to interception ratio.

Rivers has told the Chargers he will finish out his current contract which ends at the end of the season reports the San Diego Union Tribune. This will only further speculation that the Chargers will trade up to try and land Oregon Ducks signal caller Marcus Mariota.

The Chargers will also be seeking a running back in this years draft after losing Ryan Mathews to free agency.

Right now ESPN’s Adam Scheftler has continued to say that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will draft Jameis Winston with the No. 1 overall pick.
