Philip Rivers has an enormous decision to ponder this offseason. He is scheduled to meet with Indianapolis Colts team brass to discuss his on-field future.
On the other hand, TV executives are very interested in the veteran quarterback who doesn’t curse. Some suits above have said Rivers has the potential to be the “next” Tony Romo in the broadcast booth.
The 17-year veteran signed with the Indianapolis Colts last year on a one year deal. Rivers led the Colts to a Wild Card berth. They lost to the Buffalo Bills 27-24 last weekend.
“It’s not that easy (of a decision),” Rivers said in a postgame conference when asked if he wanted to come back for year 18.
Colts head coach, Frank Reich has voiced support for him to be back under center in Indianapolis for year 18.
His personality on the field would be entertaining and his football IQ would be a treasure to learn from. Of course, Rivers may not be interested in either option. He previously signed a contract to be the first every head football coach at St. Michael’s Catholic High School in his native Alabama upon his retirement.
