Oliver Luck: Andrew is fine
Named the first XFL Commissioner on Tuesday, former NFL (and West Virginia University) quarterback Oliver Luck is making the media rounds. In a 20-minute conversation with PFT, which will debut later today in the #PFTPM podcast, Oliver Luck was asked about his son, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck.
Asked how Andrew is doing, Oliver said he would provide a one-word answer: Fine.
And perhaps all that that implies.

New XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck said earlier this week on #PFTPM that roughly 30 cities are under consideration for teams in the league that launches in 2020. The AAF has identified seven of its eight inaugural cities, including San Diego; co-founder Charlie Ebersol said on #PFTPM that the AAF already has decided on the eighth city.
St. Louis officials had put together a large package of public money aimed at keeping the Rams in town. Owner Stan Kroenke, however, opted to self-fund a multi-billion-dollar complex that will host both the Rams and the Chargers.
The end result: The one major element that a lot of people expected to change this offseason in Miami hasn’t. And maybe that’s good, since so much else on the roster, in the locker room, and throughout the building in Miami has changed. Welcome to the first post-Peter King Monday Morning Quarterback column. As I’m sure you’ve all heard by now, Peter’s final day as part of the SI family was Friday, and that brings us into a new era of The MMQB.
