The Philip Rivers to Indianapolis Colts rumors are heating up to a boiling point.
Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network, reporting from the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine, shared some interesting information on this front Wednesday morning.
Pauline wrote: “What will the Indianapolis Colts do to solve their quarterback dilemma? It’s been reported the past few days that soon to be free agent Philip Rivers would be the perfect solution and people at the NFL Combine tell me they believe ‘this will happen.’”
This isn’t the first time Rivers has been tied to Indy. His former teammate in Los Angeles, Melvin Gordon, recently said that he thinks Rivers will go to Indy, and there’s been a lot of rumors that Rivers will end up playing for the Colts in 2020.
Colts owner Jim Irsay recently did a press conference ahead of the scouting combine in which he said the Colts are open to all possibilities at the quarterback position. He did say that if the season started today, Jacoby Brissett would be under center. But that’s only because the Colts have no better option at this time.
In that same presser, Irsay also wouldn’t completely close the door on an Andrew Luck return. But we’re not holding our breath on that.
