  • Coach Frank Reich is optimistic Rivers will play more than one season for the Colts, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports. Rivers had one of his worst seasons in 2019 and then signed a one-year, $25 million contract with Indianapolis. While both factors may hint at a short relationship, it sounds like the Colts will try to keep Rivers around if he rebounds in his age-38 season ahead. Already boasting an elite offensive line, the team added USC wideout Michael Pittman and Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor in the second round of last month's draft. A better running game than the one he had in Los Angeles could provide Rivers with more red-zone chances, but it also means he's unlikely to approach his 2019 total of 591 pass attempts.

  • Coach Frank Reich believes Rivers will know "80-to-85 percent" of the Colts' offense before he even walks in the door, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports. Reich points to the 38-year-old's experience and intelligence as clear assets, even mentioning that he came to prefer Rivers over Tom Brady after watching tape of both veteran quarterbacks. There's also an element of familiarity, as Reich was the Chargers' offensive coordinator in 2014 and 2015 -- a two-year stretch in which Rivers averaged 4,539 passing yards, 30 touchdowns and 15.5 interceptions while completing 66.3 percent of his throws for 7.4 YPA. Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni was the QBs coach for those teams, and he spent two more years with the Chargers after Reich left for Philadelphia in 2016.

  • Rivers and the Colts have reached an agreement on a one-year deal, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Rivers is slated to earn roughly $25 million in 2020. With that, the 38-year-old will take over the Colts' starting QB job from Jacoby Brissett. Rivers is coming off a 2019 campaign in which he threw for 4,615 yards with 23 TDs and 20 picks in 16 games for the Chargers.

  • Rivers is talking with the Colts, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. This has been a steady rumor throughout the offseason, with the Colts hoping to upgrade on Jacoby Brissett but not necessarily desperate to do so, i.e., they'll only sign a veteran QB if the price is right. Rivers has history with Colts head coach Frank Reich and offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni, both of whom worked for the Chargers for multiple seasons.

  • Rivers will become an unrestricted free agent in March and will not re-sign with the Chargers. The Chargers announced the decision in a press release, suggesting both parties agreed to go their separate ways. Rivers showed obvious signs of decline in 2019, but he should draw interest as a starter on the open market, with potential destinations including Tampa Bay, Indianapolis and Chicago. The 38-year-old quarterback spent 16 years with the Chargers, including 14 consecutive seasons in which he started all 16 games. The team has Tyrod Taylor and Easton Stick under contract at quarterback for 2020, with the potential to add a young signal-caller in the upcoming draft.
