In the most shocking development of the NFL offseason, Indianapolis Colts star quarterback Andrew Luck will retire from the NFL. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that there will be a press conference on Sunday where the 29-year-old will announce his decision. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero confirmed that Luck has informed the Colts of his decision.
Luck was seen on the sidelines of the Colts’ preseason game Saturday night, where he was savagely booed by Colts fans, against the Chicago Bears when the news broke, and confirmed the reports during a postgame press conference. The injuries he battled throughout the past few seasons had simply taken too big a toll on his psyche, he said.
“I felt stuck and the only way out of it is to no longer play football,” Luck said. “It’s taken my joy away from the game.”
Andrew Luck’s shocked the world, so Will Brinson, John Breech, Ryan Wilson and Sean Wagner-McGough fired up an emergency Pick Six NFL Podcast to break down ever conceivable angle from the news. Can Luck be considered a bust? Who is to blame here? What does this mean for the Colts in fantasy and their win total for 2019?
