ARCHIE MANNING DOUBTS THAT PEYTON AND ANDREW LUCK WANT TO BE TEAMMATES
Excerpt: "<a class="nameLink" href="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/1493/peyton-manning">Peyton
Manning</a> has said that, by March, his future in Indianapolis will become
apparent. As the Colts close in on the ability to take Stanford quarterback
Andrew Luck with the first overall pick in the 2012 draft, Archie Manning has
provided the first tangible evidence to suggest that a divorce is coming.
Specifically, Archie doesn’t believe that Peyton and Luck will want to be
teammates in Indianapolis.</p>
“I don’t think it’d necessarily be great for either one,” Archie Manning told
FOX Sports Radio’s Zakk & Jack Show on Tuesday. “I think Andrew’s
the type of mature player . . . he can walk right in. I mean, these other three
or four guys that are playing this year, [if] they can walk in and contribute,
Andrew can, too. . . .</p>
“We know Andrew well. He comes down to our camp every year. I used to play
with his dad [Oliver]. . . . I’m in New York, I heard from him last night.
Peyton’s also tried to help Andrew and kind of be a friend. I doubt if either
one want to play on the same team.”</p>
It wasn’t an accident or a coincidence. It was a clear sign that, if the
Colts plan to take Luck, Peyton will be looking for a path out of town. And for
good reason. With the first overall pick worth more than ever this year, Peyton
surely would prefer that the Colts trade the rights to Luck for players and/or
draft picks who could help Peyton win more Super Bowls." Read more...
