NFL Rumors: Andrew Luck, Jaguars, Packers, Rams, & Ravens


Andrew Luck

Colts GM Ryan Grigson told reporters on Thursday that they and Andrew Luck‘s representatives are motivated to get a long-term contract in place this offseason.

“Both sides are motivated,” Grigson said, via Stephen Holder. “We obviously want Andrew here. I really don’t anticipate any issues with that. I can’t talk about any numbers or anything like that. We haven’t started any of those discussions. But that will probably happen soon.”
