It’s not very often that a QB finishes the season with the league’s 32nd-ranked passer rating and then gets a raise. An eight-figure raise, no less. But believing Andrew Luck’s troubles in 2015 were an aberration, the Colts were happy to lock up their soon-to-be 27-year-old face of the franchise for the next six years. They were also happy to spend their first-round pick on Alabama center Ryan Kelly in order to shore up a putrid interior O-line that allowed Luck to endure far too many body blows last season. If Luck can put his fourth NFL season behind him and get back on the track that he established during his first three years in the league, the Colts will have a top-five quarterback and again be Super Bowl contenders. If Luck can’t, you can write-off this team.
