Philip Rivers has been at the helm of the Los Angeles Chargers since 2006, when they were still located in San Diego. Having turned 38 in December, the Chargers brass decided to part ways with their longtime QB. The signal-caller next season for the Chargers remains a mystery while Rivers’ destination appears set
As reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Rivers will be reunited with former Chargers offensive coordinator Frank Reich as he joins the Indianapolis Colts. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting Rivers contract to be roughly $25M on a one-year deal.
Former Chargers' QB Philip Rivers and the Colts reached agreement on a 1-year deal, per source.

The #Colts get their deal done, agreeing to terms with QB Philip Rivers, source said. He gets roughly $25M. The bolo lands in Indy, while Indy continues its restocking with big pieces on both sides of the ball.

Rivers has made eight Pro Bowls over the course of his career, but his inconsistency completing passes coupled with the injuries which plagued the Chargers roster last season ended up having Rivers lose favor with the Chargers organization, as they finished the 2019 season with a record of 5-11.
