It was only a matter of time.

Andrew Luck has received the richest contract in NFL history after signing a $140 million mega deal with the Indianapolis Colts.

The historic six-year deal includes $87 million guaranteed overall which will keep the 26-year-old quarterback with the Indianapolis franchise until 2021.

The Colts announced the signing via twitter early Thursday morning AEST.

After being selected number one overall in the 2012 NFL draft, Luck led the Colts to 11-5 records for the first three seasons and advancing a step closer in the playoffs each year. 

Last year, however, Luck clearly wasn't himself after playing through a series of debilitating injuries that eventually sunk his and the Colts season.

Indianapolis obviously think little of last year and believe the three-time Pro Bowler will return to the player that led the NFL with 40 touchdowns and finished third with 4,761 passing yards in 2014. 

There's no question Andrew Luck is deserving of such a rich deal. He's a first-class athlete on-and-off the field and will be the cornerstone of the Colts franchise for many more years to come.
