RUMOR: Could Andrew Luck Play In The XFL For His Dad?

Colts will turn to Jacoby Brissett, the 26-year-old quarterback acquired from the New England Patriots in 2017. It looks as though Luck wasn't interested in going through that again.

Luck is walking away from football after throwing for 23,671 yards and 171 touchdowns in six seasons.

According to Schefter, the Colts reached a financial settlement with Luck late last week and told their former starter to keep the money, even though it is within their rights to reclaim it. Luck ended up missing the entire year, and Brissett took over the reins in Week 2, finishing the season with 3,098 yards passing, 13 touchdowns and seven interceptions along with 260 yards rushing and four rushing TDs.

Luck sported an 11-0 career record against Tennessee, and whenever it would seem like the Titans were ready to break his streak of dominance, Luck would find another way to beat them.

"(The injuries have) taken my joy of this game away. "I haven't been able to live the life I want to live". He has already spoken with Colts owner Jim Irsay and will make the announcement official during a Sunday press conference.

"It's a shoulder, and an ankle, and this, and this", Luck said.

Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes, the reigning MVP, said: "Knowing Andrew he's a great football player, of course, but he's also a great human being - I know that he's going to make the right decision for himself and his family". Wilson now is the highest paid quarterback at $35 million per season, and Luck would certainly have eclipsed that in his next contract. Most teams would kill to have just one franchise quarterback, let alone two consecutive ones.

Luck would then lead the Colts one step further in the playoffs in each of the two following seasons. He stayed at Stanford, even though he would have been the top pick in the National Football League draft.

General manager Chris Ballard said they started discussing the potential decision early last week.

Backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett is set to start for the Colts' season opener against the Chargers on September 8. Now, Jacoby Brissett has to lead the team into 2019. And I bet I'd have a lot of company in any locker room.
