No. 17 is still unsigned as players close in on Chargers Park for camp, though. It means Rivers could play out the remainder of his deal and hit free agency in 2016.

The franchise quarterback has maintained all along that he won’t let contract talks spill into the season. The Bolts will need to move quickly — or wait until the end of the season to hammer out an agreement.
