Andrew Luck Gets Huge Contract Extension
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck just got PAID! Colts owner Jim Irsay announced the historic news on Twitter yesterday as their franchise quarterback is set to sign a 6-year/$140 million deal with $87 million guaranteed; the most guaranteed money to any NFL player ever.
"I am thrilled and excited to continue with this great organization," Luck said in a statement. "I am thankful to the Irsay family and Mr. Irsay for providing me with this great opportunity and the trust that they've shown in me. I can't wait for this season to start."
The previous record for most guaranteed money was $65 million by Giants quarterback Eli Manning and Chargers signal caller Phillip Rivers.
"The organization is excited about getting this deal done and getting it done before the Fourth of July," Irsay said. "It's a big number. It was a deal that was a fair deal for both sides taking into account being cap friendly, being reasonable in the last year in 2021."
Luck is coming off a season in which he only played 7 games due to a rib injury and a lacerated kidney.
Luck is scheduled to be healthy and ready to go by training camp.
