The Jacksonville Jaguars will be facing an Indianapolis Colts team led by Andrew Luck for the foreseeable future.
Andrew Luck has reportedly signed a new five-year deal worth an to replace his current contract with just one year remaining. His new deal is worth $25 million per year for the first three years and slightly less than that for the final two years. For comparison's sake, Blake Bortles' entire four-year rookie contract was worth just $20.6 million, according to Spotrac.
Luck is now the highest paid player in the NFL, supplanting Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco who is averaging $22.1 million per year.
