The clock is ticking for the Indianapolis Colts and new starting quarterback Andrew Luck. Luck, the number one overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, is still yet to sign the dotted line on his rookie contract. Its merely a matter of time before the Colts get their quarterback locked up and ready to go, but they have surely been taking their sweet time in getting the job done.
The Colts begin training camp in Anderson, Indiana on July 29th, and they definitely need to begin this reloading process with their new signal caller on the field to help him gel with his new team. The fact that Luck will get his contract and get into camp is merely a formality, but the exact date and structure of the contract is still up in the air. The truth is, Luck does not and should not miss a single minute of his first training camp. This team has a lot of work to do, as they build a new foundation from the ground up.
Robert Griffin III, the second overall pick in April’s draft, recently signed with the Washington Redskins, and this move has no doubt put even more heat on the Colts to get luck’s contract done. Colts owner Jim Irsay has been all over social media with declarations of assurance that Luck will be signed and in camp on time. There’s no reason to think that Luck won’t be ready to go when camp begins, but the hesitation does raise a few questions as to what the hold-up may be.
