A lot of very odd things have happened during the 2019 NFL season, but arguably the most unexpected thing to occur was Andrew Luck suddenly announcing his retirement at the age of just 29-years-old (and angering Colts fans in the process).

When it happened it took all of two days for speculation to begin that Luck would be taking his talents to the XFL when the league kicks off in 2020 in large part due to the fact that his father Oliver Luck, a former NFL quarterback in his own right, is serving as the commissioner of the new edition of the league.

While there was really no chance of that ever happening (right?), there is now a new rumor being floated by none other than Mike Florio’s that has Andrew Luck calling the signals for the Raiders when they move to Las Vegas in 2020.

“I have absolutely nothing to base this on whatsoever, but I continue to have a weird feeling that Andrew Luck could be the Week One 2020 starting quarterback of the Las Vegas Raiders,” read the tweet.

Now why, oh why, would someone with the connections Florio and his web site has, would they put out such an outlandishly unsupported hypothesis? Do they know something that we don’t and just aren’t admitting it? Or is this just flagrant speculation put forth by a normally trusted source of NFL insider news?

Needless to say, this wild statement caused quite a reaction among ProFootballTalk’s Twitter followers.

As I always say

the truth is out there


And this ain’t it. Right?
