Patriots players react to Andrew Luck's surprising retirement

Patriots players react to Andrew Luck's surprising retirement

The Colts quarterback heard boos as he walked away from the field, then walked to the podium and made the surprise decision official. That obviously didn't happen. He played well enough to be named the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year. It didn't matter that the Colts lost to the Baltimore Ravens in the first round of the playoffs. What makes this whole situation even harder to stomach is that the Colts have finally provided Luck with good protection, but it was too late. Players know better than anybody what it's like to be a professional athlete and were quick to defend Luck when he was under attack from fans.


Eric Weddle was among the players and analysts to react to the news, sharing a heartfelt message for Luck on Twitter. The quarterback also was taken a ton of punishment as the Colts failed to provide him a solid offensive line to protect him.


"We all expect we're going to play this game forever", Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson said. "I don't care if they think it's a quarterback, they are not taking it". Three years later, Sayers suffered a knee injury against the 49ers on a swing pass in a season when he was leading the league with an average of 6.2 yards per carry. Tannehill, the No. 8 pick, is the backup to Marcus Mariota in Tennessee.


Comedian Mike Epps is putting some respect on Andrew Luck's name. Or maybe he'll choose a new career. The 29-year-old appeared worn down, and he admitted football had begun to prevent him from living the life he wants to live. I think a lot of his family, I think a lot of his father, I think a lot of what he's brought to football and wish him nothing but the very best. "I hope he becomes President of the United States". Simpson said. "You could have retired an hour and a half ago before I picked you in my fantasy picks". I boiled it down simply that I like throwing the ball to my friends. However, the Colts are making the right move by trying to move forward with or without Luck.
