    During the 2004 draft, Rivers was projected to be a quick first-round draft pick due to his astounding college career. In a strategic move, the New York Giants and San Diego Chargers negotiated with each other for Rivers, Eli Manning, and a firs-round draft pick.  

    NFL Career

    As Rivers became a first-round draft pick for the Chargers, as a rookie he signed a substantial contract. His first contract included a six-year, $40.5 million salary and $14.5 million in signing bonuses. During his first two years, Rivers only played a total of four games as Drew Brees was the starting quarterback at the time. Honing his skills through practice, Rivers eventually became the leader of the team.

During his first game as a starter against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Rivers led the NFL with a 133.9 rating after completing 8 passes and one touchdown.

    In 2007, Rivers led is team to the AFC Championship game and was a big deal for the Chargers overall. The last time the Chargers won a playoff game prior to this year was in 1994. Although they ended up losing to the Patriots in the 2007 AFC Championship game, this cemented Rivers as a franchise player.

    From 2006 forward, Rivers has played and started in every single game of the regular season. Each year Rivers recorded 3,100+ passing yards, 20+ touchdowns, and nothing less than an 82.4 quarterback rating. Feel free to checkout Rivers highlights from his 2015-2016 season
