INDIANAPOLIS — With the Indianapolis Colts set to begin training camp soon at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center in Indianapolis, Colts.com previews the team’s quarterbacks.
After spending the first 16 years of his illustrious career with the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers, Philip Rivers was brought in this offseason via free agency to add a jolt to the Colts’ passing game.
The eight-time Pro Bowler, who sits just outside the top-five in NFL history in passing yards and touchdowns, should immediately benefit from their new QB’s prior experience with head coach Frank Reich and Nick Sirianni, who had previously served as Rivers’ offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, respectively, with the Chargers.
Jacoby Brissett, who enters his fourth season with the Colts, returns as Rivers’ backup after starting 15 games for the team in 2019, while 2020 fourth-round draft pick Jacob Eason and third-year vet Chad Kelly are expected to battle it out for the No. 3 job throughout camp.
