Source: Luck hasn’t spoken to or met with CAA

Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reported earlier today that there’s talk in the agent community that Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck will sign with Tom Condon and Ben Dogra of CAA.

While that may indeed be a completely accurate representation of the current pulse of the agent community, there’s a long way to go before it happens.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, neither Andrew Luck nor Oliver Luck have met with Condon and/or Dogra.  Also, CAA has yet to even speak to Andrew Luck.

“This is purely a rumor,” the source said.  “No way it can be true.  I don’t think anyone is good enough to sign a player without ever having a meeting whatsoever.”

That’s true, but more than a few agents likely think they’re that good.

If Luck ultimately hires CAA, it reinforces the notion that Luck and Peyton Manning have a plan for dealing with the situation in Indianapolis, where the Colts are one loss away from “clinching” the first overall pick in the draft.

    In the meanwhile, Andrew will remain as the unnamed junior partner with Heisman Trophy Inc.

    RG3 to the Browns and I’m dropping the mic, thumbs down? Thumbs up to you being wrong!

    I find it very troubling that the Colts will get Luck. They suck for years and draft a franchise QB in Manning. He goes down to injury for the first time in his HOF career and they get the next great prospect for their next 12-15 years. Such BS. I hope Luck turns into Leaf…just because the Colts don’t deserve him.

    Sundog05—-I totally agree with you!

    I smell ineligibility coming.

    Having both Peyton and Luck on the same does not help the colts. Someone has to be traded.

    SOURCE: Luck hasn’t played an NFL down and is no lock to be any better than the myriad of other #1 overall failures.

    It will all work out. As Andrew E. Luck himself is fond of saying, “What, me worry?”.

    He should go with Jerry Maguire. That guy is good from what I hear.

    Unfortunately Luck is already choosen to be the next “god of the NFL” by these media folks. And since they believe they have their fingers on the pulse of America, there is no way they are going to allow Luck to fail. Especially, since they are giving other QBs like Blaine Gabbert and Tim Tebow, who they feel are not in the Luck realm of superiority, every chance to succeed in the NFL. There is no way in God’s name Luck will fail unless he just downright stinks and become a Ryan Leaf.

    Also, I’m sure Luck being part of CAA shouldn’t come as a surprise if and when he does sign with them. It seems any athlete who signs with that organization automatically goes to the head of class whatever position they play in the NFL, especially in the eyes of the elite sports media.

    .

    The guy is billed as the best QB prospect since Elway and people expect him to sit quietly for multiple years while Tyler Palko, Tavares Jackson, Mark Sanchez, Chad Henne, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Colt McCoy, Rex Grossman etcetera exhibit weekly what it takes to be a starter in the NFL. Surely you jest.

    If he’s anything like Tom Brady, he’d rather start for hell than ride the pine for heaven. Although the analogy is a little unfair because we know who currently starts for heaven…….he whose name must not be mentioned.

    By all media accounts I hear of the guy, he’s a future hall of famer.

    ======================

    Same was said about Peyton Manning. It all depends where he has drafted, and eventually there will be a QB who is every bit as good as advertised….didn’t Cam Newton already teach you the fallacy of that thought?

  14. tialen says: Dec 20, 2011 11:28 PM

    With the Rookie salary cap, why even hire an agent anymore? I mean, you have to pay them 3% of your salary, and for what, to get a couple hundred grand difference on your fixed price contract? You will save more than they can get you by avoiding their fees these days.

    Luck isn’t chosen to be the “God of the NFL”, the quarterbacking has been unbearably bad , because too many teams lack o-lines, a competent GM or have no receivers. They are selling him that because Brady and Manning are eventually fading and it has to be a Quarterback’s league (fortunately Cam Newton is succeeding and they need Luck to be the next franchise QB)

    Its good for the league. Bad for long suffering teams who could really use a franchise changing identity (like Cleveland, Buffalo, Miami, etc.)

    Why would Luck need an agent right out of the gate? He’s going to get the rookie max no matter what… Why would he want to give an agent a slice of that pie when he can have the whole thing for himself? Couldn’t he wait until after his contract is in place and then go looking for an agent?

  17. pack4ever says: Dec 21, 2011 12:55 AM

    Just do the Brett Favre/ Aaron Rogers thing, let him sit a few years, learn from the best, then come out strong in 2-3 years when manning is ready to retire.

    “… since Elway.” ha

  19. northstars1991 says: Dec 21, 2011 3:03 AM

    The situation in Indianapolis is much more serious than most might think. At stake is dissing your franchise QB in Manning who has done it all… Are the Colts really that shrewd to piss Manning out for Luck who will have no easy job of living up to his hype… If I were the Colts, I’d think twice about selling out on Manning who could easily play another 5-6 years…

    ==================================
    Well, the Colts sucked for about 20 years before they got Manning so it’s perfectly fair that they get Luck. Are you also troubled by the Green Bay Packers making a smooth transition from Favre to Rodgers?

    I rather reward the successful teams than the career welfare cases like the Buffalo Bills.

    You can’t exactly compare Brady and Luck. Brady was drafted in the 6th round, and he sat on the bench because he was lucky ANYONE picked him up after he had the worst performance at the Combine. He played only because Bledsoe was injured.

    Apples and oranges.

  23. lionsplayoffs says: Dec 21, 2011 9:09 AM

    Yeah I’m sure the Colts want another Brett Favre / Aaron Rodgers thing. Odds are Peyton will handle retiring with a lot more class, but nobody has asked him to retire yet. Just because Luck is the QB in waiting it doesn’t mean Peyton is just going to hand it over in 2-3 years.

    As much as I like Manning, the Colts would be doing the smart thing by letting him go and starting over with a top rated rookie. Does anyone think they’re serious contenders next year even if Peyton comes back 100%?

    So your saying that the media controls what will happen on the field? Nice reasoning. Last time I checked, hype doesn’t translate into results. Too many GMs,fans,pundits believe in self-fulfilling prophecy.
