Rivers played 16 seasons with the Los Angeles Chargers and one season with the Indianapolis Colts. Rivers’ final game happened almost two weeks ago when the Colts lost 27-24 to the Buffalo Bills.
Rivers already has a high school football coaching job lined up for him in Alabama. During his introductory press conference with the Colts, Rivers said that he would give “the same passion and work ethic” from his NFL career at his future coaching job.
Philip Rivers made eight Pro Bowl appearances and had 421 touchdowns during his career.
