Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn is confident that Philip Rivers will enjoy a resurgent campaign this fall, partly due to the quarterback’s offseason regimen.

“He’s in great shape. He’s lost nine or 10 pounds,” Lynn said Tuesday on “The Jim Rome Show,” according to Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk. “Watching him run around on the field with the younger guys, he looks rejuvenated and he’s got a little zip on the ball. He can have three or four more productive years easily in my mind.”

Rivers was named to the sixth Pro Bowl of his career last season, but the Chargers slumped to a 5-11 record, missing the playoffs for the third consecutive year.

The Chargers fired head coach Mike McCoy immediately after the team’s season-ending loss and hired Lynn on Jan. 12.

Keenan Allen‘s expected to return from a torn ACL this season, and the Chargers used their first-round pick on wide receiver Mike Williams, providing Rivers with ample options in the passing game.
