Apparently $15 million doesn't go as far as it used to.

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, the No. 1 overall pick of the 2012 NFL draft and the recipient of a $14.5 million signing bonus and a $400,000 salary, has not yet transitioned to the smartphone era. In fact, as evidenced by a recent photo, he is still using an outdated Samsung flip hone.


Luck has mentioned his "$10" phone before, but it's always hard to believe that the 23-year-old, who could have any piece of technology he desires, still carries around a phone that may or may not get reception when it rains.

In a pre-season interview, Luck explained the idea behind his cheap phone.

"I had a history growing up of sort of breaking them or losing them, so in my mind it was logical not to get a nice phone because I'd break it or spill water on it," Luck said. "If you really want to go deep, I think subconsciously it's a way of getting away from the internet, social media and email. It's a 'go' phone. You pay as you go, but I have a plan. I'm sophisticated enough to do that having been around Silicon Valley."

Well, when he puts it that way, how can you blame the guy?
