Andrew Luck's stance on NFL comeback after receiving call asking him to return
It makes sense the Commanders would turn to Luck, who retired aged just 29 after suffering a number of injuries behind a poor offensive line.
But it is little surprise that their contact didn't get them very far.
The 33-year-old is now happily retired, spending his days fishing and playing with young daughter Lucy,
while he returned to Stanford as a graduate student recently, pursuing a masters degree in education.
Luck - the first overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft - threw for 25,925 yards and 183 touchdowns in his career,
Across his seven-year career, Luck made four Pro Bowl appearances and was considered one of the premier quarterbacks in the league -
but he has since insisted he has no intention of returning to the NFL.
Speaking to ESPN back in December, Luck revealed he had moved on from his time in the NFL as he said: “To play quarterback, you're not allowed to worry about anything except the task at hand.
And that seeps into other areas of life. It's not the healthiest way to live.“
