Rivers 'Optimistic' Deal Will Get Done With Bolts

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - News of Eli Manning's six-year, $97.5 million contract extension was duly noted in San Diego, where Philip Rivers is in the last year of his deal.

Manning was briefly the property of the Chargers on draft day 2004, before being traded to the Giants for Rivers and a handful of picks.

Rivers said after Wednesday morning's practice that he's optimistic and hopeful that he'll be in San Diego for a long time.

There apparently hasn't been much movement on talks between Rivers' agent and the Chargers regarding an extension.
