It seems like yesterday that the biggest NFL news was Andrew Luck suddenly retiring from the NFL to live his best and happy life and to stay away from more injuries.
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk decided to randomly throw speculation on his name when he took to Twitter and stated how Luck would not only come out of retirement, but he would be the QB of the Raiders.
“I have absolutely nothing to base this on whatsoever, but I continue to have a weird feeling that Andrew Luck could be the Week One 2020 starting quarterback of the Las Vegas Raiders,” Florio wrote on social media in a tweet that has since gone viral.
One of the biggest reasons Luck decided to retire was his history of injuries and the constant rehab that killed his love for football.
“It’s been unrelenting. I felt stuck in it,” Luck said during his retirement press conference. “The only way I see out is to no longer play football. It’s taken my joy of this game away.”
Quarterback Derek Carr was once thought to be the franchise star, but his play on the field has gotten erratic since signing a $125 million contract in 2017 that extended him five years.
The Raiders are currently at 6-7 in their division.
