Peyton Manning told Jim Irsay to draft Andrew Luck

As Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning gets ready to travel to Indianapolis to take on his former team, Colts owner Jim Irsay told USA TODAY Sports that Manning advised him to draft Andrew Luck prior to his released in 2012.

“He said, ‘You’ve got to take Andrew,'” Irsay said. “‘You have to. You’re crazy if you don’t.'”

Manning certainly helped Irsay make the right decision for himself as well as the Colts.

It turned out to be a win-win situation both sides now that Manning is marching towards a possible Super Bowl run and the Colts are set for the next 10-15 years with Luck under center.
