  • Philip Rivers considered retirement if he didn’t find right fit: ‘I don’t want to just try to hang on to play’


    was able to find a starting quarterback job in the NFL, signing a one-year deal with the . Where Rivers fit into the quarterback carousel this free agent season was anyone's guess, with so many signal callers on the market and a limited amount of teams looking for a franchise signal caller. 

    Fortunately for Rivers, he was (and was with the before " to Tampa" became a reality). But what if Indianapolis decided to enter the Brady sweepstakes and Tampa Bay decided on another option for its next quarterback? Where would Rivers end up after the dust settled? 

    Rivers had a plan, which might have been his only option.

    "It was one of those deals where we said if there's nothing else out there, then that'll be our answer. I don't want to just try to hang on to play," Rivers said in a conference call last week after the Colts announced his deal, . "I think really where we settled in is I still love to play, certainly not coming off my best year, but I know I still can play at a high level."

    Typically when no teams want a player in the , that player is forced to "retire." Being a 16-year veteran, Rivers had the luxury of making a retirement "announcement," even if he didn't get the offer he was hoping for in free agency. Sure, Rivers could have spent his final few NFL seasons as a backup quarterback mentoring young players, but he wanted the opportunity to redeem himself as a starter with another team. 

    Having a good season with the Colts could convince Rivers to retire on his own terms. Rivers will cerghted that he has managed to score vital goals for Bournemouth on loan this season.Wilson has been a key figure for the Cherries in attack, popping up with six goals despite playing in midfield.And the youngster did not deny that he is happy when he tainly have the resources on his coaching staff to succeed in Indianapolis. He will be reunited with Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni, who spent five seasons as an offensive assistant with the Los Angeles Chargers, who Rivers played for from 2004 to 2019. Colts head coach Frank Reich was the offensive coordinator for two seasons with the , spending three total years with Rivers in San Diego. 

    Reich was the Chargers' quarterbacks coach in 2013, when Rivers led the NFL by completing 69.5% of his passes, the highest completion percentage of his career. Along with throwing for 4,478 yards and 32 touchdowns that season, Rivers also took care of the football, throwing just 11 interceptions while earning Pro Bowl honors.

They understand how I think and why I look for thingld move for Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt.The European champions have been linked with De Ligt.And Carragher said, "Well I think he possibly will [become the world's most expensive defender this summer].“Pierre van Hooijdonk is next door doing the s," Rivers said.

  • Monday Night Football odds: Chargers vs. Chiefs picks, best predictions from expert who’s 36-19


    The will try to bounce back from a loss last week at Tennessee when they take on the rival on Monday Night Football at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. With the 35-32 loss to the last week, the Chiefs (6-4) are now 1-3 against the AFC South this season and 5-1 against everyone else. But Kansas City is 3-0-1 against the spread in its last four Monday Night Football games. Meanwhile, the Chargers (4-6) are in danger of missing the playoffs after going 12-4 last season and reaching the AFC divisional round. Kickoff is set for 8:15 p.m. ET. Kansas City is a six-point favorite in the latest Chargers vs. Chiefs odds, up two from the opener, and the over-under for total points scored is 53. Before you make any Chiefs vs. Chargers picks and Monday Night Football predictions, you should see what SportsLine's No. 1 expert, Larry Hartstein, has to say.

    A former lead writer for Covers and The Linemakers, Hartstein combinr the remainder of the year with a broken collarbone.Lanzini will be sidelined for the rest of 2019 after suffering a fractured collarbone in the 3-0 defeat at Burnley on Saturday.The Argentine schemer fell awkwardly after being fouled by Ashley Westes a vast network of Vegas sosts he's happy with the work of coach Maurizio Sarri.Agnelli is happy seeing former coach Antonio Conte's Inter Milan doing so well.“We wanted Maurizio Sarri and we took Sarri," Agnelli said. “Conte is a symbol of Juventus; he has won multiple Scurces with an analytical approach he honed while working for Pro Football Focus. Last year he went 61-47 in the NFL, and this year he's even hotter. Entering Week 11, Hartstein was a scorching 36-19 against the spread this season, a 65.4 percent cash rate that's returned nearly $1,500 to $100 bettors.

    In addioma winger Cengiz Under is on the radar of Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho.Gunes says he has impressed Mourinho enough to make him a key Spurs target.However any move for the 22-year-old would only come if Spurs can retain their place in the Champions Ltion, Hartstein is 4-1 in his last five against the spread picks involving the Chargers. Anyone who has followed him is way up. Now, Hartstein has locked in on Chiefs vs. Chargers on Monday Night Football. .

    Hartstein knows Kansas City has one of the most potent offenses in the league. The Chiefs lead the NFL in passing yards per game (313.9) and rank third in total offense (404.7) after 10 weeks. They also have the league's fifth-best scoring offense at 28.4 points per game.

    Hartstein also has factored in that Kansas City has dominated the series against the Chargers recently. In fact, the Chiefs have won nine of the last 10 meetings between the teams. The average score over that span has been Kansas City 28, Los Angeles 17. 

    Even so, Kansas City isn't guaranteed to cover the Chiefs vs. Chargers spread on Monday Night Football.

    Hartstein also knows that new offensive coordinator Shane Steichen has sparked Los Angeles' offense. In the last two games under Steichen, who replaced former coordinator Ken Whisenhunt, the Chargers have averaged 378.5 total yards and 25.0 points. In the eight previous games under Whisenhunt, the team averaged 350.6 yards and 19.6 points. 

    In addition, Hartstein has taken into account that Los Angeles will be facing one of the league's worst run defenses. The Chiefs are allowing 148.1 rushing yards per game, second-most in the NFL. That bodes well for running back , who has 188 rushing yards and is averaging 4.5 yards per carry over the last two games.

    Hartstein has analyzed this matchup and while we can tell you he's leaning over, he has discovered a crucial x-factor that makes one side of the spread a must-back. He's sharing it only at SportsLine.

  • Jon Gruden says he’ll give the Raiders their $100 million back if he can’t ‘get it done’


    Earlier this offseason, the made Jon Gruden . Gruden got a 10-year deal to return to Oakland, 17 years after leaving the franchise for the first time and 10 years after he last coached in the league. 

    Gruden's offseason plan for the Raiders has come under some fire -- -- with his preference for signing older players (, , ), insistence on retu4-0 rout of Everton.'Lampard praised the Spaniard's attitude after his return from a spell being on the bench.He said, "The whole attitude and focus of the team felt really strong today after the Liverpool win and sometimes I have been searching for rning football to 1998 (singing two blocking tight ends and a fullback), and being the main focuses of the criticisms. Gruden has said he doesn't care about or listen to his critics, and that he's got a lot of coaches that he's friends with who are . 

    In other words, he's incredibly confident that things are going to work out for his new team, regardless of the general reception to the moves they've made throughout this offseason. Just how confident is he? Well, on Tuesday, he essentially offered the Raiders a money-back guarantee. 

    "If I can't get it done, ," Gruden told USA TODAY.

    Of course, Gruden didn't exactly define what "get it done" mea striker Michy Batshuayi.The Chelsea-transfer-news-Michy-Batshuayi-Crystal-Palace-45m" target="_blank">Daily Express says Palace are ready to offer Batshuayi a way out of Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Nor is there is target date by which he needs to "get it done," whatever "it" is. 

    Gruden's got a 10-year deal, which would seem to provide him a lot of leeway, but he says he's not concentrating on the length of his contract. "Who guarantees I'm going to live 10 years?" he said. "So I don't think about that. You start thinking about a 10-year contract -- people don't know how it's structured and it doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is, 'Is going to be here? Is going to be ready to play?' I've got more important things to worry about than eight years of my contract."

"What I feel like it does, it forces them to study. [It] forces them to study even a little bit more than they would. They're prideful guys that want to be right.

    At least one player is a fan of the practice. Wide receiver , signed away from Washington on a one-year, $5 million deal this offseason, is on board with Sirianni testing the players.

It was totally different and I like it. I like change. Whatever they need to do to help learn the offense I'm willing to do."

  • Brian Urlacher’s contract critical in solving Bears’ cap predicament


    Just as Dick Butkus and Walter Payton spent the entirety of their Hall of Fame careers with the , it’s difficult to imagine Brian Urlacher wearing another jersey without the George S. Halas initials on his arm sleeve.

    On Thursday, Urlacher’s agents provided contract parameters for a new deal, league sources told the . The impending free agent, who is set to enter his 14th season in thsummer market.Guardiola fears the impact of Manchester City's proposed Champions League ban as well as the spiralling costs for players will hinder his summer transfer plans.Asked by Sky Sports News whether he expects this summer to be as busy on thee , has been realistic about his market value throughout the offseason. The eight-time Pro Bowl linebacker made $7.5 million in 2012, the final season of a five-year, $40.6 million contract he signed in 2008.

    Slowed by knee and hamstring injuries, Urlacher, 34, had 68 tackles in 2012. In Urlacher's previous two seasons, he recorded 227 tackles, four sacks and four interceptions combined.

Does that make sense? That's fair."

    Urlacher’s potential return could be the first piece of the puzzle for a front office faced with the challenge of upgrading several positions in spite of limited cap space. The Bears enter free agency the $123 salary cap and have voids to fill at left tackle and tight end.

    It’s unlikely the Bears could ask veterans and to restructure their contracts considering both signed new deals in the past year.
