Indianapolis Colts quarterback Philip Rivers suggested he might look to play again in 2021.

Rivers has been rather mum about his future, though he has previously suggested retirement could arrive at any point. However, the veteran signal-caller recently stated he would have a desire to run it back with the Colts next season:

“Without speaking out of turn, it didn’t make a huge difference to me if it was a two-year deal or a one-year thing,” Rivers said, via Zak Keefer of The Athletic. “I think that was just what was best for both sides. If I came in here and stunk it up, I was gonna be done anyway. It’d be like, ‘Man, this is brutal, let me just go coach.’ But if it went well, and we got in the playoffs and made a run, let’s do it again.”

The eight-time Pro Bowler has indeed shown he remains capable of playing effectively under center.

Rivers heads into Week 17 having completed over 68 percent of his passes for more than 4,000 yards and 23 touchdowns. He is also averaging 7.8 yards gained per pass attempt.

Of course, whether the Colts make the playoffs or not has yet to be determined. Indy needs a win against the Jacksonville Jaguars while also relying on one of the Tennessee Titans, Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens or Miami Dolphins to suffer a loss. Perhaps Rivers chooses to hang up the cleats if the Colts miss out.

Then again, Indy could be ready to move on, anyway. The Colts are projected to have the most cap space in football this offseason, and executives around the league believe they could make a trade for Matthew Stafford or Carson Wentz.
