Andrew Luck is Now the Highest-Paid Player in NFL History

ESPN’s Adam Schefter had it first.

At the ripe age of 26, Indianapolis Colts’ quarterback Andrew Luck is now the highest-paid player in National Football League history. Entering his fifth season in the league, Luck just signed an historic five-year contract extension.

Luck’s new contract, which is for six years overall and will put him in a Colts uniform through the 2021 NFL season, is worth around $140 million with $87M in guaranteed money. As previously stated, it makes him the highest-paid football player in history.

Coming off a rough and treacherous 2015 season in Indianapolis––Luck made just seven starts, completed 55.3% of his passes and threw 12 picks––the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback is looking for a bounce-back campaign in 2016. Now that his financial situation is locked up, Luck can focus on staying healthy and getting Irsay’s squad to the next level.
