Re: Phillip Rivers/Chargers - Not meant to be
I think the Chargers have proved over and over again that they are totally inept when it comes to signing first round picks. More than likely the Chargers set a lot of incentive money, and Rivers is unhappy that the incentives are unachievable. Don't forget that the Browns said that they had made their "Best Offer" to Winslow, but have since said that they might be able to budge and make a better one. I don't blame the management or the player for trying to get the best deal for himself, but when the management went public and try to paint the guy as a bad guy it is entirely self destructive. Eventually the guy will sign, and then the Chargers will promote him around town as the 'Face of the Franchise'. Looks like Rivers could hold out longer than Winslow. Mort said that he boarded a plane back to North Carolina.
