Rivers contract update

Postby KingGhidra » Wed Aug 11, 2004 8:30 pm

The News
Jimmy Sexton, the agent for quarterback Philip Rivers, responded to Chargers general manager A.J. Smith's press release stating that the team had broken off contract talks with the No. 4 overall pick. Sexton called Smith's claim that the team had offered the quarterback a deal worth more than that of No. 2 pick Robert Gallery and No. 3 pick Larry Fitzgerald an "absolute untruth," according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Our View
Sexton claims that the team is misleading the public and the media by including in their estimation a $22.5 million performance bonus that has never been reached in the history of the league—a Pro Bowl appearance and a Super Bowl title in each of Rivers' first six seasons. How about another $5 million for discovering the cure for cancer? $10 million for finding life on other planets? $15 million for world peace? This could get worse before it gets better.


Unbelievable.

The question is, if you are going to withdraw the offer and villify Rivers, how can you not think they would go public with this and leave you looking like an idiot. I guess it's just the Chargers being the Chargers.

Lol too funny

I thought I had heard this before when everyone was talking about Rivers rejecting the offer. Perhaps we were too hard on Manning. Perhaps we should have seen through the spoiledness and recognized what the chargers were all about. Why would you even put that into a contract? I mean, so far the likely hood of that happening, with this team...he'd better hope that Cure for Cancer Clause is in there somewhere.

This new GM for the Chargers is a major arse. He basically did the same kind of thing with the draft leaking info to the press and looking stupid doing it. LT told Rivers he would see him in September and he meant it!

Sexton is known as an agent who get's his players in camp.
I would hate to be a Chargers fan.
