Colts QB Andrew Luck said on Monday that he hasn’t given a lot of thought to a long-term deal, but added that it would be “great” to get something done.
“Yeah, that would be great,” Luck said of a contract extension, via Mike Chappell of CBS4. “I haven’t thought about it too much. I wanted to make sure this season gets done.
“But if there’s an opportunity for it, yeah, absolutely.”
Luck, much like the Colts, had a very disappointing 2015 season that was marred by a number of injuries including a lacerated kidney and fractured ribs.
Many still anticipate that the Colts will lock him up to a massive contract extension at some point over the next few years. It will be interesting to see how much Luck’s next contract is worth, seeing as many expected him to set the record for quarterbacks moving forward.
Luck, 26, will be entering the final years of his four-year, $22.1 million contract in 2016 and will make a base salary of $16.155 million.
In 2015, Luck completed 55.3 percent of his passes to go along with 1,881 yards, 15 touchdowns and 12 interceptions over the course of seven games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 35 quarterback out of 37 qualifying players.
