It’s worth also noting that Ian Rapoport reported Monday night that while the Chargers could certainly move on from the face of the franchise, there’s still a chance they could franchise tag him.

I don’t think this should come as a surprise to anybody. The writing has seemingly been on the wall for this move for a long time.
The good news for Philips is that there’s 100% a team out there willing to give him another shot. Despite the Chargers having a bad 2019 campaign, he’s still a serviceable quarterback.
Is he going to lead your team to the Super Bowl? No. Is he the worst passer you could find to get under center? Absolutely not.
While Philips almost certainly has more than enough money in the bank, I have no doubt there’s at least one more payday out there waiting for him.
