Philip Rivers will be playing for another franchise for the first time in his career.
The veteran quarterback and the Los Angeles Chargers announced a parting of ways earlier this month, but it remains unclear how many teams actually have legitimate interest in signing him.
The former NC State quarterback believes he has at least two more years of football left in him. One team that has been mentioned over the past few days has been the Indianapolis Colts.
After a down year that saw them have to deal with the sudden retirement of Andrew Luck, the team does not have a clear QB in place as a long-term option going forward.
NFL executives believes the Colts will take a look at Rivers.
The Podfather on YouTube reported this weekend that Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni is basically “recruiting” Rivers to Indianapolis.
Nick Sirianni was on the Chargers’ staff from 2013-17, spending two seasons as the team’s quarterbacks coach.
Going from the Chargers to the Colts would be a massive upgrade in talent for Rivers in an AFC South division that is wide open for the taking.
