Getty Images Once again Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has expressed his confidence in getting rookie quarterback Andrew Luck signed in time for training camp. “Anybody who’s done negotiations knows that you can get close and then remain close for a long period of time,” Irsay said at a news conference announcing the city’s intention to bid for the 2018 Super Bowl, per the Indy Star. “You know, close doesn’t always mean that it’s going to get done the next day. “But … he’ll be in camp, there is no question that he’ll be signed in time. We’ll be talking this week, and we are talking, and there’s no question that he’ll be signed for the beginning of training camp and ready to go. No doubt about it. We’ve been close, and I think we’ll be able to accomplish the final couple details, and it’s going to get done. No doubt about it.” With Redskins rookie Robert Griffin III signing today, it should push things along with the Colts and Luck.
