Luck signs extension with Colts through 2021 season

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has officially signed an extension with the Indianapolis Colts.

The franchise quarterback will remain with the Colts through the 2021 season.

According to the Colts owner Jim Irsay, the new six-year $140 million deal is the biggest in NFL history

Both the Colts and owner Jim Irsay posted messages on social media announcing the extension.

The former Stanford standout spent a fair amount of last season sidelined with a lacerated kidney and a partially torn abdominal muscle.

Luck sustained the injury during a win against Peyton Manning and the eventual Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos in November.

In Luck’s absence, the Colts finished the season with an 8-8 record, failing to qualify for the playoffs for the first time in Luck’s career.

The top overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft has a 35-20 record as the starter, throwing for 14,838 yards, 101 touchdowns, 55 interceptions and has topped the 4,000-yard mark twice in his career.
