Philip Rivers Colts
Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

The Philip Rivers to Indianapolis Colts smoke is getting thicker by the minute, as rival teams reportedly feel a contract is nothing more than a formality.

Albert Breer of The MMQB shared that, “Philip Rivers-to-the-Colts is being treated like a fait accompli by a lot of people from rival teams.”

He also noted that Nick Foles, whom many believe will be traded from Jacksonville, and free agent Marcus Mariota have ties to the Colts.

However, this isn’t the first time that we’ve heard the Colts are completely sold on bringing Rivers on board this offseason. What we do know is that Colts owner Jim Irsay is used to having an elite quarterback heading the franchise, and that Jacoby Brissett was unable to provide stability to the team’s offense last year.

One name that isn’t talked about as much when it comes to the Colts is Tom Brady, but that’s not something we’re ready to rule out just yet.

Free agency is nearly upon us, folks, and while it’s lying season around the NFL we’ll all soon know the truth soon elugh.
