Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck surprisingly announced his retirement from the NFL on Saturday night. He couldn’t deal with the physicality of the game anymore.
Luck is 29 years old and he gets to spend the rest of his life how he wants to. There is probably no chance he comes out of retirement to play football again.
Andrew Luck has dealt with too many injuries in his career. He is the first player in NFL history to win the AP Comeback Player of the Year Award.
Luck could have been a hall of famer, but his career was cut short. He played in 86 career games. Andrew Luck completed 60.8 percent of his passes for 23,671 yards 171 touchdowns and 83 interceptions.
He also rushed for 1,590 yards on 332 carries and 14 touchdowns. Luck also caught one pass for four yards.
Jacoby Brissett will be the starting quarterback. They could trade for somebody else to start, but Indianapolis will most likely ride it out with Brissett.
The Indianapolis Colts were the favorites to win the AFC South this season, but the division is now wide open.
They could tank the season and look to draft a quarterback in 2020, but I think they have enough talent not to do that.
Indianapolis will begin the season on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday September 8.
