Will Cassel’s Contract Impact That of Rivers?

Bill Williamson, the blogger for the AFC West at ESPN.com today answered an interesting question about Philip Rivers and his contract with the Chargers:

Leialoha from San Diego wants to know if Matt Cassel’s contract will impact Philip Rivers’ negotiations with the Chargers.

Bill Williamson: Cassel’s huge contract – he will get paid more than $40 million guaranteed in three years – was surely noted by Rivers and his agents. He is due to be a free agent after this season. He and the Chargers have chatted some about a deal, but from what I hear, there is nothing on the horizon. There is plenty of time and if a deal isn’t finalized by next year, he will, in all likelihood, end up being given the franchise tag by San Diego. I wouldn’t be surprised if both the Chargers and Rivers’ agents are waiting to see what kind of extension Eli Manning may get from the Giants before doing anything. While getting Rivers extended is surely a priority for the Chargers, there is plenty of time before a decision has to be made.
