Philip Rivers is 36 years old and understands he won’t be the quarterback of the Los Angeles Chargers forever.
With the 2018 NFL draft approaching later this month, Rivers addressed the possibility of his team selecting another signal-caller.
To tell you the truth, I don’t know why. I did ask, but I didn’t get any answers. —Former Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola, now a Dolphin, to Mike Reiss of ESPN. com , on the absence of Malcolm Butler in the 41-33 Super Bowl loss to Philadelphia.
Can a player come closer than Amendola just did to saying, What the hell was Bill Belichick doing that night? I don’t think so.

The news comes shortly after there was controversy between the Seahawks and Kaepernick. The former 49ers quarterback was invited to work out in Seattle, but the team decided to hold off on the visit when Kaepernick would not promise to stop kneeling during the national anthem, per multiple reports.
The timing of Morris’ signing with the Seahawks sparked only more controversy as Kaepernick, who hasn’t played since the 2016 season, tries to navigate finding a spot in the NFL after drawing attention with his social activism and protests.
It didn’t take long for Eagles defensive lineman Chris Long to share his criticism of what was happening in Seattle, saying Kaepernick is getting blackballed. Long has been one of the more vocal players to express support for those who chose to kneel during the national anthem.
