Andrew Luck reveals the absurd thing he plans to buy after new deal is done

There's a good chance that by the end of this summer, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is going to sign one of the largest contract extensions in NFL history.

Whenever that day comes, Luck isn't just going to take all of his new money and put it in his bank account, he's also going to make a wildly irresponsible purchase. Only this is Andrew Luck we're talking about, so it's not going to be what you think it is.

Some players out there will buy a car, and then there's other players who will buy a house. Not Luck though, he has bigger plans for his money.

During a recent interview on The Ringer NFL Show with Kevin Clark, Luck revealed what he's going to buy after he signs his new deal.

"That's a good question," Luck said. "Maybe, like, a robot ping-pong thing that can hit balls back at you. My buddy has one and he swears by it."

A robot ping-pong ball returner!

That's actually not a complete shock coming from a guy who just started his own book club. Luck and Oprah are probably the probably the two richest book club founders on earth.

As for the robot ping-pong ball returner, Luck swears that he actually has friends in the Colts' locker room and he's only going to use the robot when no one else is available.

"There's some good ping-pong players, but sometimes, no one wants to hang out, you know?" Luck said.

Who hasn't run into that problem? You want to play ping pong at 3 a.m. and no one will wake up because they'd rather sleep than play ping pong. I hate when that happens.

Unfortunately for Luck, he's going to have to wait a few weeks before making the big purchase. If he plans on buying the robot ping-pong player after signing his deal, then he'll probably be buying it around July 4. Colts owner Jim Irsay has said that he'd like to have Luck's deal done by then.

If you want to get in on this robotic ping-pong action like Luck, it seems that you can buy a cheap one for about $750. On the other hand, if you're about to sign a multi-million dollar contract or get a giant raise at work, you can always go with the slightly more expensive version, which will cost you about $2,200.

That doesn't seem like a great deal, but don't listen to me, because I know literally nothing about robotic ping-pong ball returners.
