According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, a person with knowledge of the situation has confirmed that the Redskins would be interested in Colts quarterback Peyton Manning if he becomes available.
At this point there are a lot of things to consider before Manning ends up playing in another city besides Indianapolis.
“No. 1, is he going to be released? No. 2, is he going to be healthy? No. 3, at the end of the day, is he willing to come back and play in the NFL. We don’t know those questions,” said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “I think everybody would want Peyton Manning, if he was healthy. You’d be crazy not to want Peyton Manning if he was healthy. Nobody knows now if he’s going to be cleared to play. And if he is cleared to play, wouldn’t the Colts either want him, or [pick up his option] and then try to trade him?”
Hate to break it to Redskins fans, but I really doubt Manning would want to play for a rebuilding Redskins team.

Peyton Manning in a Cowboys uniform?
At first thought, that sounds like a pretty good idea. Who wouldn't want a future Hall of Famer quarterbacking their team?
Then reality creeps in.
First and foremost, it will never happen because of the salary cap. While trading Tony Romo to make room for Manning would be the optimal move, either trading or outright cutting Romo carries...
Peyton Manning says he is determined to play in 2012, whether it be in Indy, or with a new franchise.
Whoever thought that Rob Lowe, best known for his directorial debut the night before the Democratic Convention, would be the medium to announce the end of one of the greatest players in NFL history.
For Peyton Manning, the beginning of the end all started with a tweet: Rob Lowe announced on twitter roughly two weeks ago that Manning would retire, and insisted he heard it from...
Peyton Manning isn't in Super Bowl XLVI, but he's dominating it. While Indy hosts the football world, it is also coming to grips with Manning's inevitable departure, Don Banks writes.
With Peyton Manning’s future in Indianapolis up in the air, one super fan in Tennessee wants the quarterback to come back to Tennessee. He’s started a website, bought billboards and even made videos set to Eminem’s Lose Yourself — The Best thing about this campaign has got to be the billboard right on top of Big Jim’s Boobie Bungalow. -TO
Rob Lowe Talks Peyton Manning...
Colts Authority reader matt_has wrote a piece that offers a different perspective regarding Peyton Manning's future with the Colts. This is another excellent piece we thought readers would enjoy on the front page.
Preface: I can see both sides of the Manning/Luck debate, but I expect Manning to be cut. With that expectation in mind, this is primarily a therapeutic release for...
Peyton Manning's increasingly thorny relationship with the Indianapolis Colts -- will owner Jim Irsay pay $28 million to retain his injured four-time NFL MVP quarterback? -- threatened on Monday to strip the spotlight completely from Manning's Super Bowl XLVI-playing brother Eli, who arrived in town with the NFC champion New York Giants.
That's because Peyton, his status...
Since the New York Jets collapse in the 2011 regular season, there’s been a lot of finger pointing in the organization as to what went wrong. And a lot of that blame game has fallen onto quarterback Mark Sanchez. Now, regardless of the fact that “anonymous teammates” have ripped on Sanchez for being lazy, many people have thought for a while that Sanchez isn’t a viable starting...
Peyton Manning called it. Back when the NFL was debating the merits of Eli Manning and whether he had what it took to win a Super Bowl, Big Brother took time out of his morning-after news conference five years ago to say Eli would be on the same stage soon.
Rob Lowe could have jumped the gun when he said Peyton Manning is going to retire in the off-season. I think it is time for the warhorse who has had a great career to hang up his cleats and go out while he is still able to function. Manning and Jim Irsay are even at odds. I know they will tell you they are on the same page, truth be told Manning is clearly upset with the changes...
Eli Manning doesn’t seem to be getting sick of all the questions about his brother. Seated at a podium at Lucas Oil Stadium, where big brother Peyton Manning has called home, Eli was asked repeatedly about whether Peyton will keep playing and if so where that might be, and Eli answered every question eagerly, with…
It's Super Bowl week. As the Pats and Giants gear up for their rematch, the questions over Peyton Manning's future continue to hover in Indy. Peter King has it all in this week's MMQB.
