It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
When Andrew Luck signed his rookie contract after being selected first overall by the Colts in the 2012 NFL Draft, he had the world at his fingertips. Last July, Luck inked a $22.1 million deal that included a guaranteed $14.5 million signing bonus and a $400,000 salary for the 2012 season.
The world and a 2006 Samsung cell phone at his fingertips. That’s right. Despite the money, fame and a free cell phone with one phone call from his agent, Luck uses a beat up old phone that’s seven years old. A little glitz, no glamour, but incredibly sturdy – just like Luck’s game.

From what I can glean from watching interviews, press conferences, and the like is that Colts QB Andrew Luck isn’t a flashy, in-your-face type of guy. He doesn’t do a zillion commercials like his predecessor Peyton Manning, he doesn’t wed and impregnate (so far as I know) world famous supermodels like Tom Brady, and he doesn’t rock the body ink like Colin Kaepernick.

Matt Hasselbeck recently moved between the AFC South, going from the Titans to Colts while maintaining his usual backup role. The 37-year-old quarterback is content with holding a clipboard, but is seemingly not OK with losing his No. 8, which he's worn since 2001.
When he arrived in Indianapolis, he noticed the number was already taken by Chandler Harnish, last year'...
The Indianapolis Colts were all Peyton Manning knew. The selection of Manning in the 1998 NFL draft changed the path of a Colts organization.

The Colts have made several interesting draft picks in their history. Some turned out well, others…not so much. One thing that really jumps out is how often the Colts have held the No. 1 overall pick how often they’ve used that pick toselect a quarterback. Here’s a look at some of those selections, plus another memorable pick made from the No. 2 slot.
There's a lot to smile about if you are the Indianapolis Colts, as they now turn their attention to the NFL draft.
Matt Hasselbeck was hoping for his No. 8 jersey when signing with the Indianapolis Colts last month. But first, he would have to convince teammate Chandler Harnish.
Harnish, who served as a backup to starter Andrew Luck last season, wore No. 8 as a rookie in 2012 but worked out a wager with Hasselbeck to see who got the jersey.
Instead of pulling seniority to get the jersey,...
