    Harrison Barnes and Chandler Parsons probably will get more guaranteed money than that. The NFL players need a better union.

    They need to spend that money on the offensive line.

    That team can't keep him upright.

    There is a difference in paying 15 players vs paying 53 players. Also, NBA players 66 more games a regular season. Outside of TV money, NBA generates more gate revenue.....as does MLB.

    Yeah that 139 mill is nice but it's the guaranteed money that counts....

    Oh damn. Colts fans better wrap him in bubble wrap and sit him at Texans games at NRG.

    After the 6 year contract is up they can cut Luck. Then tank for one season and draft #1 and take a quarterback. Most likely it being Ryan Leaf Jr. and start the process all over again.
