    $75mill in the first 3 yrs.

    Andrew Luck has signed a six-year contract extension with the Indianapolis Colts that will keep him with the team through 2021, the team announced Wednesday. Colts owner Jim Irsay was the first to report the news and later scooped everyone by announcing it was a deal worth $140 million over six years.

    $140 Million over 6 Years... Biggest Contract in NFL History... Congrats to #12!!!

    — Jim Irsay (@JimIrsay) June 29, 2016
    The Colts said for months they intended to lock up their franchise quarterback to a long-term deal,

    which Irsay said would be "shocking."

    And the numbers are in fact large, with the deal set to make Luck the highest-paid player in the entire NFL.

    "This is an exciting day for the organization and Colts fans around the globe," Irsay said in a statement. "Andrew is the consummate professional, possesses extraordinary talent and is our leader on and off the field. When you consider what this team has accomplished in four seasons with Andrew under center, you cannot help but be thrilled about the future."

    Irsay said he wanted to hit a July 4 deadline and the Colts pulled it off with the six-year deal believed to pay Luck $75 million in the first three years and contain $80 million in guarantees.

    "I am thrilled and excited to continue with this great organization," Luck said. "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."


    If the $75 million number for the first three years is accurate it will put Luck at the top of the earning chart for the first three years of the deal (the primary indicator for how much money you're pulling in).

    Most 3-Year Cash
    Andrew Luck: $75M (reported)
    Eli Manning: $68.5M
    Philip Rivers: $68M
    Cam Newton: $67.6M
    Ben Roethlisberger: $65M

    Obviously he's going to be a ping-pong robot whenever he gets that first check.

    The deal is called a six-year contract but Luck was already under contract for 2016 using his fifth-year option for a rookie. That option was set to pay him $16.155 million, which means Luck is getting $123.845 million in new money over the next five years, setting his average annual value at $24.7 million.

    Getting Luck under contract for five years at less than $25 million, given the importance of the quarterback position and the amount of money good NFL teams pull in, is actually pretty good value.

    Even after Luck suffered a down season in 2015 after one of the best starts to a career in NFL history.

    He played just seven games last year, dealing with multiple injuries, and threw only 15 touchdowns to 12 interceptions a year after passing for a league-leading 40 touchdowns.

    Luck averaged 4,319 yards through his first three season in the NFL but threw for just 1,881 last year.

    The AFC South is vastly improved -- all of the Jaguars, Titans and Texans got better this offseason -- and the Colts understand if they want to get back on top of the heap, it will be because of Luck. They drafted center Ryan Kelly in the first round to protect him up front and now are pumping tons of money into the most-important player at the most-important position in the NFL.

    They are working out some more swinging doors for the offensive line.

    He's no Ryan Tannehill, but he's pretty good.

    Good QB, but hasn't won anything.

    "AFC Finalist" doesn't count

    they have no choice but to give him the money, but I'm not convinced he will ever win shit. all those ints in the playoffs are disconcerting. he choked in college a lot too.

    They have banners for that now? At least the AFC Champion one means that you actually won something.

    He has carried teams to the playoffs that had no business being there. The stupid owner & gm have erroneously thought to themselves, "we put a good team together, it just needs some tweaking." because of how he elevates those around him. If they dont sink all available assets into the o-line, he wont be in the league in 3yrs.

    exactly. what are they going to do trade him? even if he's the 10th best qb in the league it's highly unlikely they do better soon.

    Every decent QB is going to set a new contract amount record. They have teams by the balls.

    It's a wildly inflated market. The talent pool is not deep enough to support 32 pro teams. Or 31 pro teams and the Chargers. Although Rivers has developed to be a better QB than I ever expected.

    You know who looks worth the money? Carr in Oakland. The Raiders may actually have a foundation to build on.

    But without support, with a team... remember Carr's older brother with the Texans. That was fucking UUUUUGLY.
