Andrew Luck retired from the NFL but said he will be a member of the Indianapolis Colts for life.
Luck is apparently making good on that vow, spending part of Thursday at the team facility with new starting quarterback Jacoby Brissett.
Brissett said recently the two text constantly. Brissett was one of the first to know of Luck’s decision to retire in August, and they’ve recently met for lunch as well.
Luck is also tight with former teammates T.Y. Hilton, Anthony Castonzo and Eric Ebron. All three are in regular contact with Luck, who announced his move away from football before the regular season began while dealing with a leg injury.
“When we text, it’s usually like, ‘Hey, good game,’ or I just see what he’s up to,” Ebron said of his contact with Luck. “I try not to talk football. It’s obvious he didn’t want to be around it, so there’s no point in bringing it up.”
