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.
