Last week a lot of people gave me crap for not doing the easy thing and picking Peyton Manning off the Denver Broncos. I tried to go a little outside the box with it and attempted to do the same thing with the San Diego Chargers, but looking at it, I don't think there is much I could have swiped that would have filled a need just as well as Julius Thomas would have, so I decided on Philip Rivers.
Looking at the Chargers roster with an eye for what the Jaguars need, no one really stood out to me as far as a pass rusher, which is the other big area I wanted to look for. The Chargers best pass rushers (Dwight Freeney and Melvin Ingram) are all on injured reserve, plus Freeney is a bit long in the tooth.
Rivers was thought to be on a massive decline, but with an injection of some passing options now with the likes of rookie Keenan Allen and Danny Woodhead, Rivers' career seems to be back on track as he's thrown for over 1,800 yards, 14 touchdowns and five interceptions.
He turns 32 in December, but Rivers still has enough gas left in the tank to play another few years.
So, who would you pick?
