4. Andrew Luck, QB, Colts — $30 million
NFL player agents all over the country waited with baited breath, to see what type of deal quarterback Andrew Luck would get from the Indianapolis Colts. While he has yet to lead the team to the type of success they envisioned from him (or the type of success they got with Peyton Manning early in his career), the Colts still backed up the proverbial Brinks truck when it was time to extend Luck’s contract, signing him to a five-year, $122.97 million deal. In the first year of said deal (this year), he’s earning a cool $30 million. With all due respect, Luck seems like a pretty simple/boring guy… So as far as what he’s going to spend all that money on — your guess is as good as mine.
