Stanford's Andrew Luck shouldn't worry about the many

A day after the Redskins signed No. 2 overall draft pick Robert Griffin III, the Colts have signed No. 1 pick Andrew Luck, the former Stanford star quarterback. 

Peyton Manning's successor has agreed to a four-year deal that will be worth around $22 million, according to the Indy Star. Luck will thus report to training camp on time, and will begin the large task of rebuilding a Colts team that once was a premier team, but was eventually gutted by age and salary cap concerns. 

Once Manning was released, it became clear the Colts would settle on Luck as their next quarterback. And team owner Jim Irsay made it clear in recent days that he had no doubt Luck would report to camp on time. 

Now that both parties have signed on the dotted line, Luck is now on the Colts' side.
