The Indianapolis Colts have signed No. 1 overall pick Andrew Luck.
The quarterback's agent and uncle, Will Wilson, confirmed Thursday that the deal had been completed. Terms were not immediately released.
Colts owner Jim Irsay told reporters in late April he expected Luck's deal would be almost identical to the four-year, $22 million contract last year's top pick, Cam Newton, signed. And the deal came together just a day after another rookie quarterback, Robert Griffin III, signed a four-year deal with the Washington Redskins. The fully guaranteed deal is worth $21.1 million, and includes a club option for a fifth year.
Luck, a two-time Heisman Trophy runner-up at Stanford, will replace Peyton Manning behind center this season.
