According to Bram Weinstein of ESPN, a source of his at ESPN, told him that it’s very likely that Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and center Jeff Saturday will end up with the Washington Redskins this offseason.
The Redskins have been mentioned over the past couple of months as a team that could end up with Manning, if the Colts do decide to move on and release him.
It would make a lot of sense for the Redskins to add both Manning and Saturday. They clearly need the help on the offensive line as well as quarterback.
There will likely be a lot more potential free agents that the Colts decide to not re-sign since it looks like owner Jim Irsay is ready to blow things up and rebuild. Which means the Redskins could end up with both Manning and Saturday, which would add a sense of comfort for Manning as he transitions to a new team.
At this point, this is all speculation, but I really don’t believe it’s out of the question for at least Manning to end up in Washington.
In the end, Manning could end up with any team that needs a quarterback if he’s indeed released in the offseason.
