Paolantonio believes the Chargers have the upper hand with Rivers: "The Eagles have to outbid San Diego. The Chragers have the "blue-Chip"— 975TheFanatic (@975TheFanatic) April 29, 2015
Along with the Chargers rumors, there are also conflicting reports that the Cleveland Browns may or may not have offered both of their 1st round picks, 12 and 19, to move up to number 2. If you use the standard pick value chart, thats a bad deal for the Titans. However if you use this draft trade calculator it winds up being a deal in the Titans' favor.
For those of you out there who are hoping this trade doesn't happen, hopefully these tweets talk you off the ledge.
We hear Titans GM is burning up the phones trying to trade out of 2. But, of course, he hasn't talked to Chargers. Terrific April crap.— Nick Canepa (@sdutCanepa) April 29, 2015
Rich Eisen also pointed out yesterday that Agent Jimmy Sexton represents Rivers, TEN HC Ken Wisenhunt, and TEN GM Ruston Webster...so he is basically negotiating with himself at this point.
So there's no trade coming because Titans GM says there's no talks about Philip Rivers, whose agent also reps the Titans GM. And coach. OK.— Rich Eisen (@richeisen) April 28, 2015
Like I said, we have less than 24 hours, but with so many conflicting reports I'm not sure whether to be anxious, excited, or just annoyed. But hey, at least its football news right?
