INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Philip Rivers went into free agency hoping to extend his career just one more year. When the Indianapolis Colts gave the eight-time Pro Bowler a shot, he took it.

The longtime quarterback for the San Diego and Los Angeles Chargers is now with the Colts after signing a one-year, $25 million contract.

Rivers is coming off one of the poorest seasons in his NFL career.
