Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay said yet again that the team’s contract negotiations with quarterback Andrew Luck are “close” to completion.
Washington announced yesterday the signing of quarterback Robert Griffin III --- the second choice behind Luck in the NFL Draft. Griffin signed a guaranteed four-year, $21.1 million deal.
“Anybody who's done negotiations knows that you can get close and then remain close for a long period of time,” Irsay said at a news conference announcing the city’s intention to bid for the 2018 Super Bowl. “You know, close doesn't always mean that it's going to get done the next day.
“But ... he'll be in camp, there is no question that he'll be signed in time."
We rank Luck 20th among our QBs, which puts him at a value of low-end QB2. His ADP has him going in the 14th round in ten-team leagues, but he'll likely go before that to some excited owner who overvalues him. He'll likely have some use in certain matchups, but clearly there are better options to focus on as far as QBs go.
