The Commanders were reported to have considered Luck as an option last year, though the Colts still own the rights to him as he had three years on his deal when he retired in 2019.
According to an ESPN source, the Colts are satisfied with the league’s inquiry into the matter, which is now thought to be resolved.
Investigations determined that the Commanders did not contact Luck or anyone in his immediate circle so they did not violate any rules.
Colts owner Jim Irsay was not happy after catching wind of the report, especially given his disdain for Commanders owner Dan Snyder, and is said to have called NFL commissioner Roger Goodell personally to have him look into the claims.
He also took to Twitter to post, “If any NFL team attempted to contact Andrew Luck (or any associate of him) … to play for their Franchise — it would be a clear violation of the League’s Tampering Policy.”
The NFL takes tampering very seriously and Washington could have paid a hefty price if they were found in violation. The Miami Dolphins were docked their first and third-round draft picks when they illegally contacted Tom Brady and Sean Payton last year, with owner Stephen Ross incurring a fine, as well as a suspension.
