One of the potential beneficiaries of the new Colin Kaepernick contract greeted the news of a six-year extension with a shrug.
“I think it’s odd to comment on anybody’s contract in any industry,” Colts quarterback Andrew Luck said, via Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star.
“(I pay) probably as much attention as any other football fan pays to it,” Luck said of the contract news. “I don’t think I’m necessarily in the spot, personally, to start thinking about that. My agent maybe pays a lot more attention to it than I do.
For me, it’s ‘congratulations.’ I actually got to meet Kap.”
Luck’s being nice about this, partly because he seems to not be wrapped up in the business of being Andrew Luck (Mr. Flip Phone) as much as others might.
But because of the pay-as-you-go structure of Kaepernick’s deal, there’s another, more pragmatic reason for Luck to downplay it.
He’s going to do a lot better when it’s his turn.
