QB Rivers weighed retirement before Colts deal

Philip Rivers, who signed his one-year contract with the Colts on Saturday, still believes he can be a starting quarterback in the NFL after contemplating the possibility of retirement.

The Colts added to their busy day of signing QB Philip Rivers to his contract and releasing CB Pierre Desir to also releasing veteran QB Brian Hoyer. They signed Hoyer to be Jacoby Brissett's backup following Andrew Luck's retirement in 2019. Releasing Hoyer means Rivers, Brissett and Chad Kelly are the QBs currently on the roster.

New Colts QB Philip Rivers said this is the first time that he and his wife talked about the possibility of retiring during the offseason. He wants to eventually be a high school coach. "But we settled in on 'I still love to play. I still know I can play at a high level. Did it in spurts last year. Just didn't do it consistently enough."
