An ESPN report surfaced last week stating the
"There's nothing there right now," Luck said, per The Indianapolis Star. "I didn't think about it all during the season and it's only been a few days since it ended. I haven't thought about it. I will have conversations with my agent just because you have to prepare, but I'm not sure where that report came from."
Luck has two years remaining on the $22 million deal he signed as a rookie in 2012. It includes a team option for 2016, which must be exercised later this year.
Luck just completed his third season in the NFL. He has been to the Pro Bowl every year he's been in the NFL. He's gone 11-5 in every season as an NFL starter. He threw for a career-best 40 touchdowns in 2014 and led Indianapolis to the AFC title game this season.
After losing 45-7 to the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game,
Luck felt embarrassed after the championship game and had to think about turning around and playing a week later.
"I mean, it is a privilege, but I am hurting in a sense," Luck said. "But I realize it's an honor to be voted in and the fans really enjoy it. So, I did it."
While Luck was proud of his team for advancing to the championship game, he said this season’s playoff loss was worse than the previous two.
"I think every loss in the playoffs leaves a really, really terrible taste in your mouth," Luck said. "But this one has been worse than the other two because we did get so close. And the way we lost, it was just embarrassing."
Luck completed 12 of 33 passes for 126 yards. He did not throw any touchdowns, but did toss two interceptions during the contest. Luck just couldn't get much going against the New England secondary. He misfired on a few of his early attempts, but his receivers also let him down on a number of occasions. When Luck was able to complete passes, it was mostly short gains. He averaged just 3.8 yards per completion. Luck also had four rushes for 18 yards.
Overall, 2014 was a breakout year for the 25-year-old. He threw for 4,761 yards and 40 touchdowns, setting new career-highs.
Luck was the No. 1 overall pick of the 2012 draft and has led the Colts to the playoffs in each of his first three seasons. During the 2014 season, Luck threw for 4,761 yards and 40 touchdowns.
Perhaps Luck's best throw came in the third quarter. On 2nd-and-goal from the 15, Luck stepped up in the pocket to escape the rush and fired a dart to Hakeem Nicks in the end zone, making it 21-10 Indy.
Luck completed 27 of 43 passes for 265 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions. Both picks came on 3rd-and-long and effectively served as punts.
Tight end Dwayne Allen caught Luck's first scoring throw, a 3-yarder in the second quarter. Luck ran twice for 21 yards.
Luck visits the Patriots in next Sunday's AFC Championship Game. In Week 11, Luck threw for 303 yards and two touchdowns with an interception in a 42-20 loss at New England.
