Andrew Luck Retires From NFL, Playing In XFL, Not A Chance

As the NFL world recovers from the stunning announcement of Andrew Luck retirement, the 29-year-old QB from the Indianapolis Colts. Fans and NFL pundits are asking if there is a possibility that Andrew could make a jump to the XFL. His father is XFL commissioner and CEO Oliver Luck.

According to a reporting from Pro Football Talk, that is not likely. The only way he could play in the XFL according to the report is with the blessing of the Colts.

Paragraph 3 of the Standard Player Contract makes clear the ability of the team to go to court to block the effort of a football player to play football for a different league: “Without prior written consent of the Club, Player will not play football or engage in activities related to football otherwise than for Club or engage in any activity other than football which may involve a significant risk of personal injury. Player represents that he has special, exceptional and unique knowledge, skill, ability, and experience as a football player, the loss of which cannot be estimated with any certainty and cannot be fairly or adequately compensated by damages. Player therefore agrees that Club will have the right, in addition to any other right which Club may possess, to enjoin Player by appropriate proceedings from playing football or engaging in football-related activities other than for Club or from engaging in any activity other than football which may involve a significant risk of personal injury.”

For the foreseeable future, Andrew Luck is done playing football, and most likely, Oliver Luck is going to have address the issue. We are sure Oliver would rather have the focus be on his league kicking off in 2020 rather than his son’s stunning retirement.

Could we see Andrew Luck as a coach in the next couple of years? His former Offensive Coordinator is Pep Hamilton, the Head Coach for the DC Defenders.

That could happen but not for several years. Look for Andrew Luck to lay low and spend time with his family over the next several years. His decision to retire did not come lightly.

A decision to retire then jump to the XFL or coach in the XFL. To use the own words of XFL Owner Vince McMahon “No Chance In Hell..”
