Rivers moving to Florida to get closer to home. He is from

south Alanbama so that suggests the move to the Panhandle, closest to Atlanta, not too far from Jacksonville either.

May not be panhanlde, 6 hour drive to Jacksonville, and 7 hours to Atlanta. there are no direct flights to Jacksonville however flights to Atlanta are available. Trust me on this I live in the panhandle Destin area.

Of course if he flies private all bets are off.
All this speculation about Brady

And it's going to play out exactly like people were saying in the spring....LA Chargers to try to boost interest and attendance.

How far from Nashville?
Tampa Bay is more likely

Bruce Arians loves his veterans. Arians resurrected the career of Carson Palmer and I expect him to target one of the veterans in free agency with Rivers being the most likely target.

Dolphins donít or shouldnít have an interest in Rivers. Happy with Fitz. Panthers can throw some $$ around to replace Newton while they buy some time hunting for a new franchise QB. Charlotte doesnít attract me if I just moved to Florida. I thought of Tampa and Jax too. Jags have to decide if they want/need to move on from Foles because Rivers wonít be a backup there. Tampa would be most interesting. Is Winston a Free Agent or playing on his fifth year?

Rivers doesn't strike me as a guy with much left in the tank. So why commit to a guy who might be able to give you one ok year, and then you're just looking for a quarterback again?
I think they are all done; rivers, Big Ben, and Eli

I agree, I think at some point itís time to call it a career. People will always say what about Brady at 43 or Brees at 41. Those two are 1.) Anomalies and 2.) passed their peak at least 2 or 3 years ago.

I realize that the Pats have won multiple SBís with Brady in his late 30ís and early 40ís and Brees has led his team to strong records the past few years, but their collective teams and coaching schemes covered up their respective physical declines. Itís not a game you can play at a high level in forever.

depending on how fast you go down 65, 7-10 hours. Also he's saving crazy money moving from California to Florida.

I think you're right, huge savings from taxes in Florida. If he gets a 2 year deal $25-$30m/yr he's good then retires. Tampa makes the most sense with Arians age and his preference for vet QBs.
Rivers if from Decatur, Alabama...  
BamaBlue : 1/20/2020 8:46 am : link
it's in the North-eastern tip of Alabama; within 30 miles of the Tennessee border. The drive from Decatur to Atlanta is 4 hours (with traffic), Nashville is 2 hours (110 miles to the stadium). New Orleans is 7 hours away.

Florida has no state income tax  
arniefez : 1/20/2020 10:28 am : link
that's why he's moving there and he has less left than Eli. He's terrible.
