RUMOR: Philip Rivers reveals truth on potential NFL comeback

Colts, Chargers, Philip Rivers, NFL

Remember Philip Rivers? Who doesn’t. The former Indianapolis Colts quarterback and long-time Los Angeles (and San Diego) Chargers signal-caller called it a career after the 2020 NFL season, leaving the Colts in a scramble to fill their quarterback position. One of the more consistent quarterbacks for the past decade, Rivers then moved on to become a high school football coach.

But, with the NFL’s ever-rapid turnover regarding injuries and now COVID-19 issues, Rivers might be headed for a comeback at some point. At least, that’s what he told Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times. 

That would be, interesting? Indeed it would, and Rivers coming back to the NFL late in the season– or even at any point– would be something. Surely he is still working out and staying ready, and he could end up making a difference for a team that needs quarterbacks.

While the Colts themselves have questions due to the injury to Carson Wentz, it doesn’t appear that Rivers is part of their plans, at least for the time being. In his lone season with the Colts, Rivers finished the year with 4169 yards passing to go along with 24 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

He can still play and be effective, and who knows if he actually signs a deal with an NFL team at some point during the season. At this point, he doesn’t seem to be ruling out the possibility.
