Those are good numbers for the Chargers when it comes to compensation pick calculations.For comparison, last year the Baltimore Ravens lost their Center Ryan Jensen to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a 4 year, $42M contract with $22M guaranteed. Almost identical numbers to the Tyrell Williams deal in Oakland. The Ravens were granted a 3rd round comp pick this year. Now, the comp pick calculations are still somewhat a mystery, so predicting them isn’t an exact science, but looking at this year’s comp picks, it’s a pretty safe bet the Chargers will wind up with AT LEAST an extra 4th round pick next year, and possibly an extra 3rd rounder.Unless they go make a big splash signing that cancels out the loss of Tyrell, however that would be very uncharacteristic.Philip Rivers Has No Desire to Play into His 40s Although it used to be considered an anomaly Emeke Egbule Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys , Tom Brady has almost single-handedly shifted the discussion of quarterback resiliency into an expectation of being able to play into and beyond a slinger’s 40th birthday.In many ways, it almost seems like the natural arms race that goes into any physical competition.In Track and Field, the 10-second barrier was the ultimate goal for runners until just about 30 years ago.As sports medicine improved, the physical limitations of the human body seemed to improve to make the impossible the expected.Drew Brees, the former Charger, is also going strong well past the previous expiration date for franchise quarterbacks.Sports writers have now begged the question “do you think you’ll still play into your 40s?” to every franchise quarterback in the NFL, and the majority of them indicate that they will.Take the Steeler’s Big Ben, if you will.Just a year ago he was contemplating retirement.Suddenly, with a new offensive coordinator and a short window left for the “Killer B” pack to get to the promised land (Ben [Roethlisberger], [Antonio] Brown, [LeVeon] Bell, and I would also throw in [Chris] Boswell Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys Stitched , as the Chargers know a thing or two about the differences a kicker makes), he’s ready to play for at least three more years.The trend is catching on.Aaron Rodgers says that his minimum target is 40.It is not unreasonable to think that these comments are based on two things:Unusually high quality QB draft classes that have proven irreplacable (2004, I’m looking at you).The benching of Eli Manning last year showed that most teams are woefully under-prepared for the departure of a long-time franchise QB.Second, and more obviously, is that it has become expected for QBs to want to play well into their 40s, regardless of the physical limitations.I’m sure that Sam Bradford would answer the same way.It just doesn’t make business sense to say “yeah, I’m done at ____ years” unless it is clearly the end of a player’s final contract.But that’s why Philip Rivers is making the news this week— he’s calling a spade a spade!Philip Rivers recently confided to Albert Breer that he thinks playing into his 40s isn’t something he’s planning on.Rivers flat-out says that he’s ready to coach high school football as soon as he’s done with the NFL.Rivers turns 37 late this year, so one way or another it sounds like the Chargers had better have a solid plan within years that they could count on one hand.As if to stoke the fire and then calm the inferno in one block quote, Rivers sets a clear goal for himselflaying in the new LA Stadium.The stadium doesn’t open until 2020 at the earliest.To achieve this goal, Rivers will have two options:Negotiate a contract extension (his current one ends after 2019’s season) or seek a new contract, also presumably with the Chargers.In typical Rivers fashion (and no, we don’t mean bolo ties) Cheap Emeke Egbule Jersey , he speaks frankly and humbly.He outright tells that his wishes are second to the team’s, and if they don’t want him any more, it’s not up for debate.Jason MichaelsAfter playing one of his best seasons in the last ten years in 2017, it’s reasonable to think that the admiration is mutual.However, as Peyton Manning showed us as he exited to the sunset, the fall can be quick and ugly.Of course, if that quick and ugly fall ends with a Superbowl win, that’s just fine by me.-Jason “Wait..Is Every Uniform Wearer Actually a Cosplayer??” Michaels
