Mike Chappell tweets the good news:

Seems like Jim Irsay made good on his guarantee that the Colts would have Andrew Luck signed by the start of training camp. Really, once No. 2 overall pick Robert Griffin III signed with the Redskins yesterday, it was only logical to assume Luck would get signed within 24 or 48 hours.

No details as yet on the contract. I'm scurrying around right now, but we should have them up once we get them.

With Luck finally inked, the grand ballet that was "Suck For Luck" is now complete. What happens from here on out is in god's hands, as they say. Whether Luck will be Peyton Manning 2.0 or Tim Couch 2.0, we don't know. What we do know is he was the best choice to be this franchise's quarterback.

The roster is young. The coaching staff is new. The front office is completely overhauled. Keeping a 36-year-old Peyton Manning (and his four neck surgeries) would have been bad for Peyton and for the franchise. Luck is the best option now and for the future. Signing him today means we, as a fanbase, have taken yet another step into that future.

Welcome to the Colts, kid. You got some BIG shoes to fill, but if anyone can do it, it's you.
