It makes sense. The Colts are going to be looking for an upgrade from Jacoby Brissett. Despite some struggles last season, the 38-year-old Rivers would qualify as just that.
In talking about where his soon-to-be former teammate might land, Chargers impending free-agent running back Melvin Gordon predicted Indianapolis.
Gordon points out the presence of Nick Sirianni as the Colts’ offensive coordinator. He worked with the Chargers from 2013-17, including a two-year stint as Rivers’ quarterbacks coach.
Once it became clear that the borderline future Hall of Famer was leaving Los Angeles, the Colts became odds-on favorites to land him. Gordon is now adding another layer to this.
