Chargers RB Gordon Thinks Philip Rivers Will End Up with the Colts

Searching for potential landing spots for veteran Philip Rivers, few stand out as obvious choices to sign the 38-year-old quarterback.

More and more, however, Indianapolis leaps to the forefront as a destination NFL.com reports.

One of Rivers’ former teammates of the past five seasons, Melvin Gordon, believes Indy will be the choice, but made it clear during an interview last week on CBS Sports that he has no inside information.

“I think he goes to the Colts,” Gordon said. “I don’t know, that’s just my thought.”

Gordon, who is also set to become a free agent, used logical dot-connecting to come to his conclusion, noting that Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni previously worked as a Chargers assistant for five years. The relationship between Rivers and Sirianni would make a transition easier for a player who was with the same franchise the past 16 seasons.

“He has [connections],” Gordon said. “Nick… he came from here, we had him, and he’s the offensive coordinator there. They run the same playbook, so it’d be easy, he could come right in and he could be telling guys what to do, he knows what’s going on already.”
