Andrew Luck has signed a six-year contract extension with the Indianapolis Colts that will keep him with the team through 2021, the team announced Wednesday. Colts owner Jim Irsay was the first to report the news and later scooped everyone by announcing it was a deal worth $140 million over six years.
The Colts said for months they intended to lock up their franchise quarterback to a long-term deal, which Irsay said would be "shocking."
Even after Luck suffered a down season in 2015 after one of the best starts to a career in NFL history.
He played just seven games last year, dealing with multiple injuries, and threw only 15 touchdowns to 12 interceptions a year after passing for a league-leading 40 touchdowns.
Luck averaged 4,319 yards through his first three season in the NFL but threw for just 1,881 last year.
