The only reason that I'm not sure it's a lock that Rivers becomes a Colt is that the idea is becoming conventional wisdom.
Maybe there's a better move to be made, but if it's Rivers or JB, it's not a debate. Take the band aid option, as that's better than a team deteriorating infection.
And #13 should be used to find a QB if Ballard likes who's available irrespective.
For the people in the back as well, LA has nothing left contractually with him. He is no longer apart of the organization, so there is no "releasing" him, he's already listed as a FA. Olsen is irrelevant because he was released while under contract. AGAIN, FA's can't be communicated with until the start of the new league year.
Come on guys.. this stuff has been talked about endlessly on here and is easy to look up as well.
