INDIANAPOLIS – Andrew Luck is now officially under contract through the 2016 season.
On Thursday afternoon, the Colts announced they have picked up the fifth-year option on Luck's rookie contract.
Luck's rookie deal now places him under contract with the Colts through the 2016 season.
At last month's Annual League Meetings, Colts Owner Jim Irsay had this to say regarding Luck's second contract.
"I think that'll be a focus of next offseason (2016) that we'll address," Irsay said.
"Andrew still has two years left, and whatever our talks are between Andrew and his people will remain confidential. It's not like we don't have conversations about a possibility, so to speak, of something. But I really think most likely the scenario is going to be going into the offseason next year is when that second contract will come up. That's the vision I have right now."
