Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay is not willing to talk about an extension for QB Andrew Luck following the team’s 45-7 blowout loss to the Patriots in the AFC Championship game.
Following reports made on Sunday that the Colts were prepared to make Luck the highest paid QB in NFL history, Luck was mostly ineffective in the AFC Championship game, throwing two INTs and no TDs as the Patriots shut out the team in the second half. After the game, Irsay refused to talk to reporters about the status of Luck’s eligibility for a contract extension.
“I’m not going to discuss Andrew’s contract,” Irsay said, via ESPN.com. “That’s not something that is really at the top of my mind. He just finished his third year. It’s a five-year deal, so, again, that’s not in my thought process right now.”
The Colts technically cannot offer Luck an extension on March 10th, 2015 – the start of the 2015 league year – which gives Irsay plenty of time to reconsider.
Luck finished the 2014 regular season tied for the league lead with 4,952 passing yards, breaking the franchise record held by QB Peyton Manning.
