And now the dominoes will fall.
The Indianapolis Colts signed No. 1 overall draft pick Andrew Luck, NFL.com and NFL Network's Albert Breer reported Thursday, citing sources with knowledge of the situation. According to Breer, the fully guaranteed deal is worth $22.1 million over four years with a fifth-year team option, includes a $14.5 million signing bonus and doesn't have offset language.
In another year, this would represent high drama. But Luck wasn't expected to miss training camp, which doesn't start until July 25 for the Colts.
The NFL rookie slotting system has turned this process into a systematic, almost predictable, chain of events. Now that Luck and RG3 are sealed up, we expect the other unsigned first-round draft picks to fall in rapid succession.
