Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay issued a warning on Sunday to NFL teams regarding retired QB Andrew Luck.
On Saturday, ESPN’s John Keim published a story about the Washington Commanders being so desperate for a quarterback last year, they called around to every team with a quarterback they thought might be available. Keim even noted that the team checked in on Luck, who is retired.
Irsay saw the report and issued a warning via Twitter in response to the Luck report.
Luck was the No. 1 overall pick in 2012 by the Colts. He was with them until surprisingly retiring before the 2019 season.
The 33-year-old Luck signed a 5-year, $122.97 million contract extension with the Colts in June 2016. He was still under contract at the time he retired.
The Colts still retain the NFL rights to Luck and could pursue a tampering claim against Washington in response to the report.
Luck seems to have no interest in making a comeback.
