The future of Philip Rivers is uncertain at the age of 38 years old and a disappointing 2019 season.
"I'm capable enough physically and mentally, there's no question," Rivers said. "Yes, I do want to play football. I do, and that's how I feel deep down as I stand here."
Rivers, however, also went on to say he will take some time to discuss his decision with his family and also the Los Angeles Chargers to see if they want him back.
"There's a lot of factors," Rivers said. "There's a personal side and family side to mine. I'm going to have a daughter in college as well, too. So time is ticking, and I've got a sixth-grade son that I've got to get ready to coach at some point, so there's all kinds of factors.
"But I know I can still do it, and I know I can still do it at a high enough level for us to win. I have not done it well enough this year, but I still do love to play, and love to lead these guys and this team. It's been an array of things that have compounded, to keep us from winning enough games to advance into the tournament."
