NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport has reported that the Indianapolis Colts and quarterback Philip Rivers have been in contact and that the former Chargers QB is a “clear target” for them. Rivers has been heavily connected to the Colts ever since him and the Bolts parted ways
The #Colts have had discussions with free agent QB Philip Rivers, source said. And while nothing is done, he’s a clear target for Indy. We shall see if they can agree on the money.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 16, 2020
Indy currently has two former Chargers offensive coordinators on their team in head coach Frank Reich and current OC Nick Sirianni so there would be a ton of familiarity from the jump and that’s the biggest you need when bringing in a veteran who has, up to this point, played his entire career with one team.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see a deal get done by the end of this week. If the Rivers domino falls, I would expect the rest of the free agent quarterback class to follow suit in hasty fashion.
