Indianapolis Colts quarterback, Andrew Luck yesterday sent a ringing endorsement of free agent offensive lineman Jonathan Martin saying he would be 100% in favor of acquiring the ex-Stanford man.
Speaking with Pro Football Talk on NBCSN, Luck said:
"I'd say I love Jon, we had a great time at Stanford together, still stay in touch with him regularly and I think he's a great man."
Although the quarterback was careful with his words, an article from the program seemed to believe that he would be firmly in support of an acquisition of Martin:
"he ultimately provided one key word in response to the question of whether he'd be 100 percent in favor of acquiring Martin: "Yes."
Martin has not played football since he walked out of the Miami Dolphins in October amid the bullying scandal which has engulfed the team and led to the suspension of teammate Richie Incognito.
However, Martin's agent has recently spoken out to confirm that his client would very much like to play in the NFL this season for any team.
Luck is entering his third season for the Colts after being the first overall selection in the 2012 draft. He has led the team to the playoffs both seasons and last season defeated the Kansas City Chiefs in the wild card round before losing to the New England Patriots in the divisional round.
The Colts have almost $40 million in cap space to spend on free agents this offseason.
