According to Pro Football Talk, Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard does not want to trade Andrew Luck. He said he does not want to be known as “that guy.”

Colts owner Jim Irsay recently said that the team has turned down offers for Luck. Ballard also said that this was the case — and the general manager said he then cut off the phone calls when asked about their asking price for him.

“We’re not trading Andrew Luck,” he said. “I’m not putting that on my
résumé.”

The conversations apparently did not progress after the early interest stages. It is not known what kind of offer they might have received.

“Look, we had some calls last year at the trade deadline,” Ballard said. “And I just — c’mon man. I’m not taking those seriously.”

There were many teams, who were quarterback desperate and drafted a signal-caller in the NFL Draft this weekend, maybe they were some of the teams. However, since the Colts immediately shut down the offers, those teams have not been identified.

Despite missing last season with an injury, the Colts still believe that Luck is their face of their franchise. Luck was the No. 1 overall pick by the Colts in the 2012 NFL Draft.

The 28-year-old Luck last played in 2016, where he guided the team to an 8-7 record in 15 games. He went 346 of 545 for 4,240 passing yards. He also had 31 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

In his career, He has gone 43-27 in 70 starts. He has gone 1,570 of 2,651 for 19,078 passing yards. He also has 132 touchdowns and 68 interceptions.
