Colts Officially Signing Philip Rivers

The Colts are officially signing Philip Rivers, it appears.

Despite Jacoby Brissett being very solid last year, Indianapolis wants a new quarterback.

Brissett stepped into a starting role in 2019-20 following the abrupt retirement of Andrew Luck.

Although he played decently, some within the organization felt like the Colts underperformed with him at the helm of the offense.

As such, they have now turned their attention on a new target.

According to NFL Network insiders Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo, the Colts have serious interest in bringing in Rivers.

Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers have seemingly agreed to go their separate ways this offseason.

Last year, Rivers recorded 23 scores and 20 picks. The numbers were some of the worst of his career.

Despite that, Rivers still provides a veteran presence at quarterback that many feel could turn a team on the outside of the playoff chase into a legitimate contender.

Clearly Indianapolis is one of those teams.

Adding fuel to this fire is the fact that current Colts head coach Frank Reich served as the then San Diego Chargers’ offensive coordinator from 2014 to 2015, so he is very familiar with Rivers’ skill set.

If things don’t work out between Indianapolis and Rivers, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are said to be very interested in his services as well.

That said, Tampa Bay’s interest will just drive up the intensity with which the Colts try to get a deal done with Rivers.

Rivers officially becomes a free agent in one month. At that point, expect a full-on sprint from Indianapolis to get their man signed.
