Jerry Jones hopes Andrew Luck becomes president of the US
Andrew Luck announced his shocking decision to retire from football on Saturday, and most people are confident he will find success no matter what path he chooses in life. Jerry Jones believes Luck has what it takes to be one of the most powerful men in the world.
Jones was asked about Luck’s abrupt retirement after the Dallas Cowboys’ preseason game on Saturday night, and to say he has high hopes for the former No. 1 overall pick would be a huge understatement.
“To step back away from this thing, I honor him. I think a lot of his family, I think a lot of his father, I think a lot of what he’s brought to football and wish him nothing but the very best,” Jones said, via Jon Machota of The Athletic. “I hope he becomes President of the United States.”
Luck is extremely intelligent. He graduated from Stanford in 2012 with a degree in architectural design, so there is plenty he can do outside of football. He’s also only 29.
All that said, we tend to doubt Luck is going to explore the possibility of becoming the president of the US. He’s not exactly experienced in that department, and the mental stress of running for president would probably rival the physical stress of playing football.
Luck made plenty of money during his NFL career — even if it was an abbreviated one. The Indianapolis Colts are also doing what they can to make sure he is as financially set as possible. Luck should have plenty of options if he wants to start another career.
