Colts owner Jim Irsay tweeted on Saturday that the team is getting close to a deal with No. 1 overall pick Andrew Luck. “Talks with A Luck’s agent,Will Wilson(the brother of Andrew’s mother) have been productive.
Team Counsel Dan Emerson n Will r getting close!” Luck can expect a contract in the range of what quarterback Cam Newton got last year from the Carolina Panthers.
The 2011 No. 1 pick, Newton received a four-year, $22 million guaranteed deal that included a $14.5 million signing bonus. Luck has been absent from Colts OTAs, but it has nothing to do with money. He remains prohibited from taking part in team activities until after June 7, when his final exams at Stanford will be completed.
