The Indianapolis Colts will report to training camp on July 26 with their 90-man roster, which will be cut down to 53 players by the end of the preseason.  To pass the time until camp, we're taking a look at every player on the Colts' 90-man roster.  Today, we're looking at quarterback Andrew Luck.

Cheese Curds, 6/30: Andrew Luck's contract sets new bar; which OL should be Packers' priority?

As the new highest contract in NFL history is in, Green Bay should be focused on keeping some of the key components of its offensive line together beyond 2016. The Green Bay Packers were not directly affected by the big news from Wednesday in the NFL, but they will feel the ripple effect down the road. The Colts locked up quarterback Andrew Luck to a new contract, the largest average compensation per year in the NFL's history, and as the salary cap continues to increase it spells continued bumps for the net few quarterbacks who sign their long-term contracts. The Packers thankfully do not...

Andrew Luck’s new contract worth more than entire Broncos’ No Fly Zone

Andrew Luck is now a very wealthy man, but will his new contract hamper his teams’ ability to win championships for the next six seasons? The big news yesterday was Andrew Luck signing a six-year, $140 million contract extension with the Indianapolis Colts. As absurdly rich as that contract is, I wanted to make it look even more absurd by comparing it to the Denver Broncos in some way. The actual contract value is six years, $139.125 million, with a total of $87 million in guarantees. Only $44 million is fully guaranteed, but another $16 million becomes guaranteed on the fifth day of the...

Andrew Luck now makes more than Andy Dalton, George Iloka and Jeremy Hill combined

How many Bengals can be combined together to cost the same as Andrew Luck's new, massive contract extension? On Wednesday, Andrew Luck signed a six-year, $140 million deal with the Colts including $47 million fully guaranteed. If you consider only the five year extension, and don't include the 2016 season (during which he'll make $12 million plus a $6.4 million signing bonus), from 2017-2021 the deal averages out to $24,594,000. If you include the 2016 season, the average is $23.3 million per season. The deal makes Luck the highest paid player in the NFL, and it's not even close. Joe...

Projecting Matthew Stafford’s next deal using Andrew Luck’s extension

If the Lions choose to extend Matthew Stafford next year, what does Andrew Luck’s deal tell us about the look of that contract? Earlier in the week, Pro Football Focus listed Matthew Stafford’s current contract as one of the five worst quarterback NFL contracts currently on the books. While it’s true that his $22.3 million remaining cap hit per year is likely more than he’s currently worth, that number doesn’t seem too ridiculous after the monster contract Andrew Luck signed on Wednesday. Adam Schefter has the details: Details on Andrew Luck deal:5-year extension (6-year...

Colts 2016 player preview: Wide receiver Quan Bray

The Indianapolis Colts will report to training camp on July 26 with their 90-man roster, which will be cut down to 53 players by the end of the preseason.  To pass the time until camp, we're taking a look at every player on the Colts' 90-man roster.  Today, we're looking at wide receiver Quan Bray. Who is he? Quan Bray (5-10, 186 pounds) is listed first and foremost as a wide receiver on the Colts roster, but he really has made an impact as a return man.  The Colts signed him as an undrafted free agent last offseason out of Auburn, where he was a decent receiver and a good return...

HT: Remembering our fellow fans no longer with us

One thing that really stood out last year in our magical Super Bowl season to me as a fan was how Broncos Country poured out prayers, memories, love, and support after the loss of Bronco Mike. Here's a drink to those who bled orange and blue that are no longer with us. Just a hair over a year ago, MHR was rocked by the loss of one of our most rabid fellow fans: Bronco Mike. He may be gone, but he isn't forgotten. In the comments and inputs from some of us, we also mentioned others who recently moved on to the big orange and blue sunset in the great beyond (Miss you Dad!). Let's take a...

Golden Nuggets: Andrew Luck will not be a 49er in 2017

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Thursday, June 30th, 2016 Good morning! Not much really going on in the world of the San Francisco 49ers directly.

He just got PAID to stay with the Indianapolis Colts. Sorry to ruin your day. Granted, as the clock was ticking, speculating on what could happen wasn’t a bad thing, especially after Luck’s underwhelming season last year that was ended due to injury. But come on, you really think the...

Andrew Luck contract: Colts QB is overrated but not overpaid

The Indianapolis Colts heard the news about Doug Baldwin on Tuesday and decided "Man, we gotta get in on this news cycle while the gettin's good" and announced a five-year contract extension for Andrew Luck. The deal is worth $123 million from 2017-2021, and is worth $139 million if you include the $16 million he was already scheduled to make this season. It is the richest contract in NFL history and has "$87 million guaranteed," whatever that even means anymore. The point is that Luck is now super-duper rich as opposed to yesterday when he was ... no wait, he's really been super-duper rich...
