On another board, a SD fan posted a thread about Breaking News he heard on local radio in which SF and SD have opened trade talks. SD would send Rivers and the #12 pick to SF for the number 1 overall.. The only player they could possibly want that high would be Braylon Edwards.

Still waiting for confirmation of the source. Anyway, I guess they would have to somehow restructure Rivers contract in order to not suffer a crazy cap hit, but it would be a good trade for both sides imo.

Yes, but this one claims they have actually opened talks and are in serious negotiations.

Rivers and the #12 seems pretty good for SF they might have to get a little something extra though. If it does happen hopefully the Chargers take Edwards so we cant.

That would be good for us. We can get Rodgers or look for additional picks for a team that wants to trade up to our spot for Rodgers.

Rivers and the #12 has the potential to be excellent value for the Niners.

When this rumor first started it was Rivers for #1 pick. If this trade does workout then everybody know that the Chargers will draft Edwards and we can ensure get Alex Smith.

1. Brees
2. Miss Cleo Lemon
3. Ladainian

Rivers+ our #12 for #1?--Pass.

Lake Mary....I think
from PFT:

We've heard rumblings from the Bay Area that the San Francisco 49ers could be trying to pry away from the Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, in exchange for the No. 1 pick in the 2005 draft.



We've yet to substantiate this one via any sources with actual knowledge of the discussions, but the rumor is "out there" -- and some might think that it really is "out there."



The Chargers, if interested in making the move, most likely would select receiver Braylon Edwards or receiver Mike Williams with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, since the team has no need for a top-shelf quarterback or an elite running back.



The biggest flaw in this one, as we see it, is that the "option" portion of Rivers' 2004 signing bonus was due on March 10, which means that the cap hit resulting from a trade would be much larger than it would have been if the trade had occurred before March 10.



If the 49ers' are indeed interested in making such a move, it's hardly a glowing endorsement for Aaron Rodgers and Alex Smith, the top two quarterback prospects this year -- and it could mean that, if the 49ers use the pick, they'll go in a different direction. Likewise, the whole thing might be intended to entice a team in the top ten who wants Rodgers or Smith to trade up with the 49ers -- without the Niners having to initiate the discussions with any of those teams.



The Chargers, on the other hand, might be willing to take the cap hit if they can make the team a lot better. The rumored trade would give the Chargers three first-round picks in the upcoming draft -- not bad for a team that was 12-4 last year.
it wont happen

You cant be serious? So sign a cheap veteran and draft a QB late. This is the opportunity to gain the 1st pick in the draft AND still have another 1st rounder for a player that you do not need!
