Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay plans to meet with quarterback Peyton Manning within the next week and told ESPN on Tuesday that he's leaving the door open for Manning to stay with the Colts."We want this to be his decision...We want him back if he wants to come back. We can work out the contract if he wants to work it out. It's going to be Peyton's call,"...
Just Do It!
Peyton Manning will have a meeting with Colts’ owner Jim Irsay next week and all the indications are that while Irsay would welcome the 4-time MVP back he is likely not willing to give him the $28 million roster bonus owed to Manning next month.
Still, there is a chance that Manning stays with the Colts, but if he becomes an unrestricted free agent should the Seahawks...
Day by day the Peyton Manning in Indianapolis story gets crazier. There seems to be reports surfacing from both camps regarding where Manning will end up for the 2012 season. Once again, Irsay has released a statement saying that the ball is in Manning’s court in regards to where he will play.
You have to remember that the Colts hold the number 1 spot in the upcoming NFL Draft...
