Luck, who turns 30 on Sept. 12, had met with Colts owner Jim Irsay earlier to tell him of the decision.

"I've been stuck in this process," Luck said, stopping several times to gather his emotions. "I haven't been able to live the life I want to live. It's taken the joy out of this game ... the only way forward for me is to remove myself from football.

"This is not an easy decision. It's the hardest decision of my life. But it is the right decision for me.''

Luck has had to deal with various injuries throughout his career.

News of his retirement sent sportsbooks across the globe in a mad frenzy to pull NFL division odds.  European bookmakers like Ladbrokes were particularly caught off guard as the news occurred during the early morning hours in Great Britain.  NFL betting throughout Europe has become increasingly popular in recent years.

By Sunday morning, the AFC South odds had the Texans and Jaguars technically co-favorites at 6/5 and 5/2, respectively.

The Titans were listed at 3/1 odds and the Colts at 5/1 or 6/1 depending on the book.

Here were the NFL division odds prior to Saturday's news.
