The Indianapolis Colts are set to embark on the 2020 NFL season with a new quarterback under center in the form of Philip Rivers, who spent 16 seasons with the Los Angeles Chargers before signing with the Colts in free agency.
Now, Rivers will have to lead the Colts to bigger heights, and Colts’ general manager Chris Ballard discussed how Rivers has fit into his new team thus far in the process.
“He has a tremendous internal drive to be a great teammate, to win, to be the best he can be,” Ballard said, via ProFootballTalk.
Ballard talked about how joining a new team is a new experience for the veteran Rivers, but he has bought into everything so far.
“He has had to buy into some things that we do here nutritionally and workout-wise that he’s never had to experience before” Ballard said.
“It’s different for him, but he’s bought into it. His love for the game and football, and his teammates, they are going to feel it even more now that he’s here in the building.”
