That is not bad news for the Texans. I hope he enjoys his retirement. He seems to be a good guy. I enjoyed watching him in HS, college and the NFL.

I think this could become a trend for other players. They are making generational changing money. No need to play a long time and beat your body up.

Retire early and enjoy life.

Crazy, but he’s stayed hurt for about the last 5 years. He’s gonna be a case of what could’ve been. Had he had a long, healthy career he probably goes down as an all-time great

Calvin Johnson, Robert Smith, and Barry Sanders all retired close to his age and nothing has changed. I don’t think Andrew Luck retiring will change anything. Sometimes great players retire early.

For everyone you have retire early you have guys playing way past what you would think.

Julius Peppers, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Brett Favre, Jerry Rice.

Owners really screwed him. He played behind a terrible line most of his career. Dude played through alacerated kidney and abdomen tear For his team. One of the good guys who played with class we never heard anything about him in the off season.

Yes he was a good guy, and didn't get in trouble. He had a good up bringing. His dad was a QB. That's all great, but what about the post below..... this is also true about him.

You mean the fans that booed him off the field after all his sacrifices for the team?? Football is a brutal sport, easy for us to throw stones sitting in our recliners. He played well and gave all of himself to the sport. And when he couldn’t he retired. I bet you won’t be able to find one teammate of his that feels the same way you do.

Awe, poor season ticket holders ( insert as much sarcasm as possible ). They spent all their money on season tickets; they wont be able to eat or buy shoes for their kids just so they could watch Luck play. And now he retires do to injuries what a selfish *** Luck is. ( more sarcasm ).

The negativity in the public and here are just another reason to not support the NFL, outside of the SAINTS of course. Anything they accomplish is a slap across the NFL and Goodells face. Friday Night Lights and College ball can definitely fill the gap.

Good luck Andrew.

I see both sides. This decision could have been made a couple months ago, not 2 weeks before the season starts.

One's health and well being is #1, so for that, I'd say good for Luck in making that decision. I'm sure a few medical experts were telling him to hang it up if he doesn't want to experience serious medical complications down the road.

With that said, Luck comes from a fairly wealthy background, some of which is due to the game of football and the idiot fans some of you are demonizing. His father and himself were provided great opportunities because of the game. Actually his father was able to obtain a great education and has been a successful businessman and the sport of football helped him accomplish that. Making sacrifices for the team? You mean in exchange for millions of dollars? Fans are going to have knee jerk reactions.

Luck has the right to quit his job just like any one of us. My only issue is the timing could have been a little better. No more, no less. The NFL needs more high character players like Andrew. I wish him luck in his future endeavors.

I think it’s probably the right call if he’s having potentially serious health issues.

I also don’t blame the fans for being mad.

It’s more of a lose/lose than anything. Sucks for both sides.

I guess I don’t blame him, he’s already made enough money to be financially set for the rest of his life. But he theoretically left $400-500 million on the table. Wow, I don’t know if I would quit knowing that there is still that income earning potential out there.

The net says he has a 40 Mil net worth. Id probably stay at least 8 or 10 years which i think would be 2 contracts but not a second more than that.

The body can only that so much and when it quits being fun it’s time to hang it up.

That being said, if he gets healthy, it wouldn’t surprise me to see a come back.


That degree from Stanford doesn’t hurt having either.

Bingo. He doesn't owe the team or the fans anything. If the colts would've provided him some protection, maybe he'd be there. His list of injuries is insane for a 29 year old... He's made some money for the team. Ida been gone a few years ago.
