    According to Schefter at least, the Colts could have possibly recouped as much as $24M (which is surprisingly high, I thought I read $12M as well last night). But apparently the Colts and Luck have reached some kind of settlement where they won't try to get the money back.

    $25 million, but they reached a settlement where Luck won't owe anything. Probably comes with confidentiality agreement and releases Colts from liability related to mismanagement of Luck's injuries.

    Colts, Andrew Luck Reportedly Come To Financial Agreement

    Or he lights it up, the colts overpay and then Jacoby returns to the mean. Ending them up in cap hell. Either way is a win win to me. I'd give them one good year for yet another rebuild.

    People like Brady and even Manning have a pathological drive. People that retire at 29 because they’re mentally tired of football don’t. Even if he didn’t retire do you think a guy that sees a the game as a grind that he dreads is ever going to be the sort of guy that fanatically prepares like Brady?

    Walking away from a job at 29 and a millionaire where you spend insane hours working and training is something a rational grounded person does. Driving yourself day in and day out to become an all time great is not something a normal person does.

    the big question now, does andrew luck classify as a bust?

    The amount of money spent, some gaudy stats, and no playoff success.

    Gronk is a HoF player who if he continued could have been the GOAT at his position Luck wasn't on that career path.

    Physically he has it all and works as hard as you can. I’d love to see him break out.

    Sitting in ER, head split open abt 3 inches but these shltpost are giving me more of a headache.

    Is Luck a bust?

    Gronk isn't the GOAT TE?

    Can't blame colt fans for booing a 29 yo who had half his body numb after taking hits? Pissing blood? Multiple concussions?

    People actually defending the prior GM's drafting?

    Some of you should be ashamed of yourselves. Its ****in sports. Not that serious.

    Not where this happened. Friday night we were. Can’t remember the name of the place this happened. We were drinking at the bar not there for dinner but I do remember it being nice. Not as upscale as Elmo’s probably.

    A guy came over started trash talking my GF. When she hands it back to him he literally tried to spit in her face and luckily mostly missed. As I made my way over it was pretty evident to who
    who we were later told was the mayors security what was going down (I’m 6’7”’and was building a quick head of steam) and they stepped in. We were ushered out the back door and the dick was tossed forcefully out the front.

    Look at how many people disagreed. One comment from one person is not why people hate the pats.

    You can’t compare a TE to a QB when it comes to impact.....teams will rank a season to get a QB, never happen for a TE

    Luck was a starting QB.

    Sorry, but the position is the most important on the field by far.

    Losing Luck is a far bigger hit to the Colts than Gronk to the Pats.
