“(We) went back and watched his play from the past two years and didn’t see any physical drop-off,” continued Reich about Rivers,, who previously worked with Rivers as the Chargers’ quarterbacks coach (2013) and offensive coordinator (2014-15).
The Colts signed Rivers to a one-year, $25-million contract.
The 38-year-old, who led the Chargers to a 5-11 record in 2019, is coming off one of his worst seasons after tossing 20 interceptions with only 23 touchdown passes.
Brissett, meanwhile, started 15 games for the Colts last season following Andrew Luck’s shocking retirement. He managed seven wins while amassing 2,942 passing yards and 18 touchdowns against six interceptions.
