It's anyone's guess where Philip Rivers will land, but a former Chargers teammate has a good guess. Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Even before Philip Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers announced earlier this month that they were parting ways, the veteran signal-caller was linked to the Indianapolis Colts.

It makes sense. The Colts are going to be looking for an upgrade from Jacoby Brissett. Despite some struggles last season, the 38-year-old Rivers would qualify as just that.

In talking about where his soon-to-be former teammate might land, Chargers impending free-agent running back Melvin Gordon predicted Indianapolis.

Gordon points out the presence of Nick Sirianni as the Colts’ offensive coordinator. He worked with the Chargers from 2013-17, including a two-year stint as Rivers’ quarterbacks coach.

Once it became clear that the borderline future Hall of Famer was leaving Los Angeles, the Colts became odds-on favorites to land him. Gordon is now adding another layer to this.
