Colts can sign first pick on Friday

According to PFT and the NFL’s Greg Aiello the Indianapolis Colts can sign their first pick (presumably Andrew Luck) as soon as Friday:

Thus, the Colts could, in theory, sign the first overall pick long before the draft happens.  NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tells us that the Colts could sign the top pick as of Friday, after a pair of coin flips lock in the draft order.

And so, theoretically, Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning could end up as teammates, after all.  The Colts can sign Luck before they cut Manning.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
