Coach Frank Reich believes Rivers will know "80-to-85 percent" of the Colts' offense before he even walks in the door, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Reich points to the 38-year-old's experience and intelligence as clear assets, even mentioning that he came to prefer Rivers over Tom Brady after watching tape of both veteran quarterbacks. There's also an element of familiarity, as Reich was the Chargers' offensive coordinator in 2014 and 2015 -- a two-year stretch in which Rivers averaged 4,539 passing yards, 30 touchdowns and 15.5 interceptions while completing 66.3 percent of his throws for 7.4 YPA. Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni was the QBs coach for those teams, and he spent two more years with the Chargers after Reich left for Philadelphia in 2016.

Gordon anticipates working in a "one-two punch" with Phillip Lindsay (wrist) in the Denver backfield, ESPN.com's Jeff Legwold reports.
Analysis: Broncos GM John Elway used the same terminology earlier this week, suggesting both Gordon and Lindsay will have key roles in the offense. Gordon's two-year, $16 million contract suggests he'll be the "one" in that one-two punch, though it's Lindsay who owns the impressive career average of 4.9 yards per carry. Gordon's mark of 4.0 YPC has been oft-cited as a criticism, and while there is some merit to the argument against him, it's also true that he's spent most of his career running behind subpar offensive lines. The breakdown of snaps and carries appears uncertain, but Gordon should at least have the advantage when it comes to pass-catching and goal-line work.

Davis (hamstring) is signing a one-year contract with the Lions, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.
Analysis: Selected by the Giants in the sixth round of the 2015 draft, Davis spent the past four seasons bouncing on and off the Chargers' roster, catching three passes in 26 games. A hamstring injury sent him to IR in late November, and he'll now need to compete for a spot on the 53-man roster in Detroit.

Benjamin (quadriceps) is signing a one-year contract with the 49ers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: The 30-year-old joins a crowded wideout depth chart in San Francisco, where Deebo Samuel is the only sure-thing starter but Kendrick Bourne, Trent Taylor (foot), Dante Pettis, Marquise Goodwin (knee), Richie James and Jalen Hurd (back) could all be in the mix for snaps. Benjamin may thus find himself battling for a roster spot, depending on what happens with injuries, cuts and trades in the coming months. He spent the past four seasons with the Chargers, unable to recapture the magic of his 2015 breakout season in Cleveland.

The Broncos have signed Gordon to a two-year deal worth $16 million, that includes $13.5 million guaranteed, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Gordon will be joining a Denver backfield that also includes Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman, with Rapoport adding that the "lure of playing in the same division as the Chargers" appealed to the 2015 first-rounder, who reportedly had a better offer from another team.
