The Redskins are likely to bid for veteran quarterback Philip Rivers once free agency begins, Pro Football Network’s Tony Pauline told 106.7 The Fan.
Pauline first reported over the weekend sources were telling him they expect the Redskins to make a bid for Rivers. He expanded on that reporting with The Sports Junkies.
“People at the combine who I spoke with believe that the Redskins were gonna put a bid in for Philip Rivers,” Pauline said on 106.7 The Fan. “They didn’t think they were gonna get him, but it may come down to money. But they thought that once free agency starts, that they’re gonna try and put a bid in for Philip Rivers.”
The Chargers announced in February they were mutually parting ways with 38-year-old Rivers, whose contract is set to expire when the new league year begins.
“The belief is he’s still gonna end up with Indianapolis,” said Pauline, “but it’s interesting that the Skins do want to come in and get a veteran quarterback like Rivers.”
