[quote user="JPizzack"]So what do you guys think Peyton is going to do this off-season!?
I'm concerned that the Redskins are going to make a serious attempt at getting him, if Indy cuts ties....
Peyton Manning's $28 million option bonus is due March 8, four days before the start of the 2012 league year.</p>
The Colts and Manning could agree to push back the deadline
past the start of the new league year so a trade could be worked out.
ESPN's Adam Schefter says "it will not be a surprise" if Manning
"navigates" his way out of Indianapolis.
NFL Network's Mike Lombardi believes the Colts can indeed
trade Peyton Manning if they get Manning to rework his $28 million
"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."
It would be terrible if he went to the Skins. But it would be cool to watch the bros play twice a year.
