Luck Of The Draw: New Colts QB Likely To Be In Demand Within Corporate America
Published May 9, 2012
LUCK GROUNDED: CBSSPORTS.com's Mike Freeman noted because NFL rookies are prohibited from attending workouts at the team facility other than rookie minicamp until they complete the college semester, Irsay offered Luck use of his private jet and helicopter so he “could work in different parts of the country with Colts players.” However, that is “against league rules.” The league “prohibits those types of things because they could lead to salary cap abuses.” Unless Irsay “wants a call from the NFL (and a potential fine) he had better allow Luck to go commercial” (CBSSPORTS.com, 5/7).
