Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers have agreed to a four-year contract extension.

What It Means:

Rivers and the Chargers had seemed been far apart on contract talks, and there were rumblings of potential trades or use of the franchise tag. The signing is big for the Chargers, and it locks up one of the premier passers in the league for what will likely be the rest of his career.

Rivers has finished among the top-10 in our Passing Net Expected Points metric in four of the last five seasons. Our numbers project Rivers to throw for over 4400 yards and 28 touchdowns this year, and to finish 10th in fantasy scoring among quarterbacks.
