  • Manning to the Skins?





    NFL Network's Mike Lombardi believes the Colts can indeed trade Peyton Manning if they get Manning to rework his $28 million option bonus.


    "There are a lot of ways to get around this, but clearly re-doing the contract is the first step," said Lombardi, a former NFL GM. Manning's $28 million option is due right around the start of the new league year, so the Colts will need quick cooperation from both Peyton and another team in order to pull this off, particularly if Manning won't delay the payment. Lombardi suspects the Colts will try to trade him out of the conference to an NFC team, suggesting the Redskins. "Lot of money, lot of availability," said Lombardi. "And oh, by the way, they really need a quarterback badly. They need a signature face on their franchise."



    That would make the Skins 100 x better.. Anyone think it will happen?

    ALL IN!

    I don't think Archie wants them in the same division.


    But I think it would be weird. Can't see it.

      Wait..... is this serious? I never paid any attention to manning being traded rumors before but this seems thought out. I mean what if Luck busts?

        Yea that would SUCK lol.... I have no problem if he was in the same Conference but not in our division.

        Imagine if he was, how crazy would the manning hype be especially if it happened twice a year for another 3-4 yrs.

            It would be odd to see him in anything other then Colt blue.




            But there has been numerous times in thehistory of the NFL an all-time qb plays for another franchise at the end of there career.

                Let them do it they will trade 4 first rounders for damaged goods and it will set them back half a decade

                  Not to mention the skins have a good defense. There biggest issue would be Wrs, which they can fix asap, and they could easily sell players to come and play w/Peyton for 3-5 years.

                    Peyton would hold all the cards to his destination.I doubt he would restructure to get sent to play for Dan Snyder

                      Be another bad move for the DeadSkins.......They won't be any good until Snyder is out of the equation.

                        I'll believe it when I see it. Which is never, because this is not happening.

                        Although from a football prospective, it's sad to say but wouldn't you rather play for the Redskins than the Colts right now?

                          Even though I think Peyton could play another few years if he actually get's back to 100%, I don't know if the Skins would be in play for him. They just have too many holes on their team to give up the number of picks/players that the Colts would likely want.




                          But, then again, as the Colts have proven this season, Peyton is the type of player that covers up a lot of holes.

                            The Colts are vastly over thinking all this.

                            Step 1: Draft Luck

                            Step 2: Have Manning be the starter another 2 years so Luck can study under him

                            Step 3: Profit

                              You're nuts if you think Luck isn't going to be a starter in his first 2 years
