Tyrann Mathieu admitted he's going to miss Philip Rivers' trash talk twice a year in the AFC West, and now he's on the lookout for someone new to exchange smack with. He believes he may have found a new trash talk enemy in Broncos quarterback Drew Lock, whom he believes has the talent to be a good rival.

Mathieu joined Fescoe in the Morning and was asked who he thought would step up to fill the shoes of Philip Rivers and his legendary trash talking?

Mathieu's response: "If I could pick a kid that probably steps up to the plate, a kid that I actually like a lot, that kid in Denver, Drew Lock. He's got a swagger about himself, he has a lot of confidence that he carries. He didn't really talk too much trash last year, you know it's pretty tough to play against us but I think he will have a better supporting cast, I think he will have more confidence and it will be his offense. I think he will kind of step into that role and embrace who he is, so I can definitely see him stepping in for Philip.
