Colts owner Jim Irsay warns NFL teams about reaching out to Andrew Luck

Since former Indianapolis Colts star quarterback Andrew Luck retired in 2019, there remain questions concerning whether he would ever consider a comeback.

Colts owner Jim Irsay addressed the situation by airing a warning to any potential interested team.

“If any NFL team attempted to contact Andrew Luck (or any associate of him) … to play for their Franchise — it would be a clear violation of the League’s Tampering Policy,” Irsay posted on Twitter via ESPN.

In the three years after his retirement, Luck hasn’t made any move toward making a comeback. Instead, he’s stayed par for the course of enjoying his life away from the game.

If that were to change, a few NFL teams would certainly voice significant interest in the former Pro Bowler. Before Luck retired, he was one of the game’s top talents under center.

However, lingering health issues led him to step away from the game suddenly during the preseason before the 2019 season.

ESPN reported Saturday that the Washington Commanders last year made multiple attempts to lure Luck out of retirement. There isn’t any clarity concerning what the Commanders voiced to him, but it has caught Irsay’s attention.

The 29-year-old hasn’t shifted course toward wanting to play football again. His focus remains on his family and life away from the game.

Meanwhile, the Colts have moved on with potentially finding their long-term replacement under center with Ohio State standout C.J. Stroud with the second overall pick in this year’s draft.

Time will tell whether Stroud will be the answer that Indianapolis has long searched to find.
