Philip Rivers retiring from National Football League after 17 seasons

With Philip Rivers retiring Colts don’t have time to be patient

"Philip Rivers made lasting impressions with every teammate and coach he competed with over the course of his 17 National Football League seasons".

Rivers spent his first two years in San Diego backing up Drew Brees before taking over as the starter when Brees left in free agency.

His 240 consecutive regular-season starts was the second-longest streak since 1970, trailing only Brett Favre (297), and it was one of the few stats Rivers cherished.

Rivers, who is fifth in NFL history in both passing yards and passing touchdowns, is expected to become a high school football coach in his native Alabama.

"It's just right. I can sit here and say, 'I can still throw it". I wish Philip, Tiffany and the entire Rivers family the best and thank them for their contributions to our organization and community. I love to play.' But that's always going to be there. I'm not only appreciative of Philip's contribution to the Colts in 2020, but the impact he made in the NFL and in the game of football during his career.

Rivers had a solid season for the Colts, throwing for 4,169 yards and 24 touchdowns and helping them reach the AFC playoffs before they lost to the Buffalo Bills in the opening round. I also enjoyed the banter.

But last week, Ballard said he wanted to take some time to evaluate the season and possible offseason acquisitions and urged Rivers to take time to determine if he would be all-in for 2021. I appreciate the referees for putting up with all my fussing. Could not have done it without y'alls unwavering support.

It was prayer, contemplation and conversation since the end of the season that convinced Rivers the time had come.

Rivers' hiring as the head football coach at St. Michael Catholic High School in Fairhope, Ala., effective when he retired, was announced last May. Selected by the New York Giants, he was involved in a draft-night swap with the then-San Diego Chargers for No. 1 overall pick Eli Manning. My name is Damond Talbot, I have worked extremely hard to help hundreds of small school players over the past several years, and will continue my mission. "It's been growing. I can't wait". "I'm curious to see how many assistant coaches resumes I get in the next 10 minutes or so".
