Good Morning. San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers turns 33 years old this year, and has two years left on his current deal.

Backup Charlie Whitehurst is set to hit free agency in March, and second-year pro Brad Sorensen is the only other quarterback on the Chargers’ current roster. With a lack of depth at the position, San Diego could look to draft a developmental quarterback this year to groom as an eventual replacement for Rivers.
