Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has started 176 consecutive games, the fourth-longest streak for a quarterback in NFL history. But he won’t be around forever.
That’s why Chargers coach Anthony Lynn indicated at the league meeting that the Chargers will draft a quarterback who can back up the 35-year-old Rivers and compete with the 33-year-old Kellen Clemens for the No. 2 job.
“I think we do have to get a young quarterback on campus. We have to start developing someone because we have two veteran quarterbacks,” Lynn said. “Both of them are long in the tooth. I think they have some good years left in them — don’t get me wrong. But, you have to start thinking about down the line too.”
The story added that Rivers has indicated he has no issues with the team drafting a QB and he expects to start for at least a few more years.

Week 6 at Oakland Raiders
It is unclear whether this game will be played in Oakland or Santa Clara, due to concerns about air quality with the wildfires, but either way it's a road game for Philip Rivers against a Raiders defense that is only 26th in our aFPA vs. QB rankings. Rivers is coming off back-to-back 20-point fantasy performances, and Oakland allowed 18+ to quarterbacks not named Josh McCown, Trevor Siemian, and Joe Flacco. Plus, in two of his last four games against Oakland, Rivers threw for 300+ and 3+ touchdowns. He's on the QB1 radar for Week 6.
