Andrew Luck stunned the whole sports world when he announced his retirement from NFL games. Luck was the star quarterback for Indianapolis Colts and the whole news came out of nowhere. The most shocking part is that Luck was just 29 years old and had only played 7 seasons with the Colts.

And if his decisions don’t fit into what you think is best for him then you rip him? Guess that keeps you employed on FS1. Nice https://t.co/p59DsmPoER
