RTC: Andrew Luck's love for futbol


Here's Tuesday's Reading The Coverage:

-- Colts.com has a story on quarterback Andrew Luck's passion for the other kind of futbol.

Luck lived in Europe as a kid while his father Oliver worked for NFL Europe. He lived near Highbury Stadium, which is home of the Arsenal of the English Premier League.

"Going back and growing up and having so many fond memories of being in Europe, the passion that the supporters have for their football clubs in Europe is different than the passion in the NFL or a college fan will have," Luck said. "I think both are great in their own right but to me I think the support of Tottenham or Arsenal or Manchester United, I loved watching their games and hearing them chant and sing."

-- Stephen Holder of the Indy Star writes about the different options on how the Colts can approach free agency once it begins March 11. Holder mentions front loading the contract or offering shorter contracts to free agents.

"While we know the Colts aren't going to be splurge in free agency, it doesn't mean you should expect them to sit on their hands, either," Holder writes. "They have options. Expect them to use them."

-- George Bremer of the Herald Bulletin (Anderson, Ind.) writes about how Colts general manager Ryan Grigson is leaning toward taking a conservative approach once free agency starts next month.
