This is a move that needs to happen at this point.
The Indianapolis Colts struck pay dirt when they drafted Andrew Luck with the first overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. Luck did a phenomenal job taking over for Peyton Manning in Indy, but has never brought the team to the promise land in his time with the team.
However, this season has been a completely different story for Luck, as he has been ruled out for the year due to complications with a shoulder injury he suffered at the end of last season.
The Colts have more than mismanaged his situation, and cost him a year of his career as a result.
Andrew Luck will be re-evaluated by docs again in Dec. Colts do expect him back in '18, love Jacoby Brissett but not ignoring QB draft class— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) November 5, 2017
Now, the Colts and Luck have an interesting situation staring at them in the 2018 offseason. What to do with Andrew Luck?
Obviously he is one of the most talented QBs in the game, and has all the potential to be the best in the league in the coming years. However, with a lack of talent surrounding him, Luck may never be able to properly lead this Indy team.
Therefore, it may be smart for the Colts to trade him for the king's ransom he's worth, and launch the rebuild of this franchise with those very assets.
Andrew Luck timeline:— Zak Keefer (@zkeefer) November 2, 2017
Sept. 2015: Hurts shoulder
Sept. 2015-Dec. 2016: Plays hurt
January 2017: Surgery
Numerous top-talent teams are going to be on the market for a new QB in the coming seasons, including the Pittsburgh Steelers, New Orleans Saints, New York Giants, Los Angeles Chargers, and more.
I don’t think it’s unfair to wonder if Andrew Luck ever plays again.— mike freeman (@mikefreemanNFL) November 2, 2017
That's the saddest possibility in all of this.
