INDIANAPOLIS — With the start of training camp just a week away — Saturday, July 28, at Anderson University — the Indianapolis Colts signed rookie quarterback Andrew Luck to a four-year contract this afternoon.

Luck, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 National Football League draft, and the Colts agreed to a deal that is reportedly worth $22 million with a $14.5 million signing bonus. Indianapolis also had an option for a fifth year.

While the two sides had been close to an agreement for the last several weeks, Indianapolis officials and Will Wilson, Luck’s agent, came to terms a day after the No. 2 overall selection, quarterback Robert Griffin III, signed with Washington.
