This was an absolute no-brainer. The Indianapolis Colts have picked up the fifth year option on Andrew Luck, who initially singed a 4-year, $22 million contract after being selected first overall a few years back. In no time, Luck has taken a team from dead last to title contender. He’ll be the highest paid player in the NFL before long.
The team officially announced that they’ve picked up the fifth-year option on quarterback Andrew Luck’s contract. The superstar passer, who is in line to become the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL, will now be guaranteed $16.155 million for injury for the 2016 season.
In reality, this was a piece of paperwork that was so obviously going to be filled out that it might not have registered a passing thought in the mind of general manager Ryan Grigson.
