INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The Indianapolis Colts were taking a closer look at Stanford University quarterback Andrew Luck on Tuesday, as the Colts say the other contender for the top draft pick rejected an offer for a private workout.
On Tuesday, Colts owner Jim Irsay announced via Twitter the team was looking at Luck in a private workout in California. Luck and Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III have had buzz surrounding them as early draft picks. But Irsay said an agent representing Griffin, better known as RG3, rejected an invitation from the Colts to have a private workout for Colts officials.
