Colts likely to be 'very proactive' extending 2012 draft class
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/20/15) The Colts are expected to be "very proactive" in working out long-term extensions for members of the 2012 draft class, CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora repots.
Wide receiver T.Y. Hilton is expected to be the first player approached after catching 82 passes for 1,345 yards and seven touchdowns in 2014. Andrew Luck, Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener are three more players who figure to be involved in the team's longterm plans.
Duron Carter: Playing with Luck 'will set my career in motion'
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(2/3/15) New Colts wideout Duron Carter got his first exposure to Andrew Luck during Pro Bowl practices. Carter's dad, Hall of Fame receiver and ESPN analyst Cris Carter, took Luck with the No. 1 overall pick.
“That was my first time seeing (Luck) and my first time really hearing about him,” Duron Carter told the team's website.
“Even just from my dad, hearing how Andrew handles people in the huddle, and just around the hotel, he’s just a great guy. Just to be a part of that and be around him I think will really help me and set my career in motion, where no one else could.”
Carter, who starred in the CFL the past two seasons, watched the Colts' loss to the Patriots in the AFC title game and thought he could flourish playing with Luck and a receiving corps led by T.Y. Hilton. He noted New England hounded Hilton with multiple defensive backs.
“I’m sitting there watching the playoff game and I said, ‘I felt like I could be out there and I could help in one of those situations,’ Carter said.
“Just on an every-down basis, me being able to go out there, winning one-on-one matchups when it’s called on me. A lot of teams do go man-to-man and pressure Luck, the only way you can beat that, for me, is to win those one-on-one opportunities with T.Y. over there.”
Carter, 23, who bounced from college to college due to off-field issues, realizes he has a golden opportunity. With Reggie Wayne unsure whether he'll return and Hakeem Nicks an unrestricted free agent, Indy could enter 2015 with Hilton, Donte Moncrief and Carter as its top three wideouts.
“It’s always been my dream to play in the NFL,” Carter said.
“Through decisions I made prior when I was younger, I hindered that opportunity. Getting into the CFL that was my motivation the whole time, every play, every snap, every catch, was I wanted to go to the NFL. Now that I’m here, my next goal is to make the Colts roster.”
Colts' Luck on new contract: 'There's nothing there right now'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/26/15) An ESPN report surfaced last week stating the Colts were working on making quarterback Andrew Luck the highest-paid player in the NFL. When asked about the subject at the Pro Bowl, Luck seemed surprise when he heard the news.
"There's nothing there right now," Luck said, per The Indianapolis Star. "I didn't think about it all during the season and it's only been a few days since it ended. I haven't thought about it. I will have conversations with my agent just because you have to prepare, but I'm not sure where that report came from."
Luck has two years remaining on the $22 million deal he signed as a rookie in 2012. It includes a team option for 2016, which must be exercised later this year.
Luck just completed his third season in the NFL. He has been to the Pro Bowl every year he's been in the NFL. He's gone 11-5 in every season as an NFL starter. He threw for a career-best 40 touchdowns in 2014 and led Indianapolis to the AFC title game this season.
Colts' Andrew Luck considered skipping Pro Bowl
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(1/24/15) After losing 45-7 to the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck admitted he thought about not playing in the Pro Bowl, reports The Indianapolis Star.
Luck felt embarrassed after the championship game and had to think about turning around and playing a week later.
"I mean, it is a privilege, but I am hurting in a sense," Luck said. "But I realize it's an honor to be voted in and the fans really enjoy it. So, I did it."
While Luck was proud of his team for advancing to the championship game, he said this season’s playoff loss was worse than the previous two.
"I think every loss in the playoffs leaves a really, really terrible taste in your mouth," Luck said. "But this one has been worse than the other two because we did get so close. And the way we lost, it was just embarrassing."
Colts' Andrew Luck can't get anything going on Sunday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(1/18/15) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck had a rough game on Sunday against the Patriots.
Luck completed 12 of 33 passes for 126 yards. He did not throw any touchdowns, but did toss two interceptions during the contest. Luck just couldn't get much going against the New England secondary. He misfired on a few of his early attempts, but his receivers also let him down on a number of occasions. When Luck was able to complete passes, it was mostly short gains. He averaged just 3.8 yards per completion. Luck also had four rushes for 18 yards.
Overall, 2014 was a breakout year for the 25-year-old. He threw for 4,761 yards and 40 touchdowns, setting new career-highs.
|Accolades have been poured on to Andrew Luck since arriving in the league in 2012, but there's one thing we can't call him just yet: An elite Fantasy quarterback. As a rookie he had just six games with 20-plus Fantasy points and he didn't improve on it in his second season. So even though he finished as a Top 10 Fantasy quarterback both seasons and even had more Fantasy points in 2013 despite 552 fewer passing yards, he wasn't exactly consistent. The good news is that the Colts will absolutely surround Luck with tons of good receivers, giving him every opportunity to post career-highs. Hakeem Nicks was signed away from the Giants for the year, Reggie Wayne and Dwayne Allen are back following knee injuries and the offensive line should find an upgrade or two. This should all result in Luck still running an efficient offense but completing more passes and coming up with better numbers and, hopefully, developing consistency for Fantasy purposes. Of course he's still held in high regard as a No. 1 quarterback, one you should be able to snare at a good value in drafts starting in Round 6.
