Andrew Luck in favor of bringing Jonathan Martin to Indianapolis
Colts quarterback Andrew Luck said he stays in touch with Jonathan Martin and would be in favor of Martin landing in Indianapolis.
The 24-year-old offensive lineman is under contract with the Dolphins for two more seasons, but that doesn't mean he's staying in Miami. According to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora, conversations didn't go too well when Martin's camp met with the Dolphins at the NFL combine.
A trade could send Martin anywhere, but one place he'd probably feel comfortable and where he'd see a lot of familiar faces is Indianapolis. In an interview with on NBC Sports Network's Pro Football Talk show on Wednesday, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck said he'd be in favor of bringing his former Stanford teammate to Indy.
Specifically, Luck was asked what he would tell the Colts' front office if he were asked about Martin, "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," Luck said.
Just to be clear though, the Colts quarterback was also asked if he'd be 100 percent in favor of bringing Martin to Indianapolis, "Yes," Luck said.
Luck also added that he's spoken to Martin within the past couple of days.
If Martin's looking for welcoming locker room, Indianapolis might be his best bet. The Colts are basically Stanford-east. Besides Luck, the Colts also have three more of Martin's former Stanford teammates -- Coby Fleener, Griff Whalen and Delano Howell -- plus Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton had the same job at Stanford while Martin was there.
Luck might be in favor of bringing Martin to Indianapolis, but the real question is: Would the Colts front office be in favor of it?
