|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/9/15) The Colts announced on Thursday that they have exercised the fifth-year option on quarterback Andrew Luck's rookie contract.

In his first three NFL seasons, Luck has completed 1,062 of 1,813 passes for 12,957 yards, 86 touchdowns and 43 interceptions. He's been named to the Pro Bowl in each of his three years.
Luck threw for 4,761 yards and 40 touchdowns in 2014, which included throwing for over 300 yards consecutively in Weeks 3 through 11.

|(3/23/15) Colts owner Jim Irsay said that there is no sense of urgency at this time to extend quarterback Andrew Luck's contract, per ESPN. He also added that the team will most likely wait until after the 2015 season.
"Andrew still has two years left, and whatever our talks are between Andrew and his people will remain confidential," Irsay said. " ... I really think most likely the scenario is going into the offseason next year is when that second contract will come up. That's the vision I have right now."
The former first overall pick of the Colts in the 2012 draft has thrown for 12,957 yards with 86 touchdowns and 43 interceptions in three seasons. He has also added 905 yards on the ground with 12 rushing touchdowns.
Colts' Irsay says next offseason will likely focus on Andrew Luck
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) With Colts quarterback Andrew Luck establishing himself as one of the league's best quarterbacks, Colts owner Jim Irsay said next year's offseason will likely focus on signing Luck to a long-term deal, reports the team's official website.
Luck was the No. 1 overall pick of the 2012 draft and has proven to be worthy of his draft status. Luck has two years remaining on the $22 million deal he signed as a rookie. The deal includes a team option for 2016, which must be exercised by May 1.
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 | Senior Analyst|
|(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.”
|Andrew Luck is a cinch to be one of the first two quarterbacks taken in Fantasy this summer, but not in Round 1. The depth of the position has devalued quarterbacks, but it doesn't mean Luck won't be any good. He was fun to watch in the red zone last year; he picked his matchups and riddled defenses time and again, including using his legs to score if need be. Luck's breakout campaign included 43 total touchdowns and over 4,700 yards -- and 20-plus Fantasy points in 12 of 16 games (along with two more games with 18 points). Now that the Colts have added Andre Johnson and Frank Gore to an already intimidating offense, it seems that Luck will be just as prolific in 2015. Ten indoor games and a mostly favorable schedule should only make him better. Luck is a good option in Round 2 in standard leagues, maybe a smidge later in PPR formats and a no-doubt Top 2 overall pick in leagues that start two quarterbacks.
