Around $20 mil a year??? Well, at least know the 'skins can focus on trading up for RGIII.

I have nothing but respect for our guys for structuring what appears to be a cautious deal in a situation that would merit some, for the good of the organization.

Man I hope the Skins and Rams have that handshake deal in place... If the Skins don't get RG3 i'm really going to cry grownup tears...

Re: Colts Officially Release Peyton Manning (QB Thread #11)

Found this that says, Miami, Skins and Broncs are the three and confirms what SS said about guaranteed money.

Has Manning already narrowed his choices? - CBSSports.com

One team official that contacted Manning's agent, Tom Condon, says he got the definite impression that Manning indeed has already decided where he wants to go, or, at least, the handful of teams truly in the mix. The official, who did not want to be identified, believes that Miami, Washington and Denver are the front-runners. One report states Manning has already informed the Redskins he doesn't want to play for them.

But the official conceded the front-runner will be the team that, in the end, offers the most guaranteed money.

The official believes that contrary to some reports, Manning is indeed open to playing in the NFC, even in the NFC East where his brother Eli, is obviously king of the division.

Re: Colts Officially Release Peyton Manning (QB Thread #11)

Funny because I definitely expected Peyton to command $20+ million a year (obviously assuming he's health) and believe he'd be worth every penny of it. That's only half our remaining pool of salary cap room anyway.

Fascinating how short the typical memory is IMO. Peyton almost single-handedly made the Colts a perennial SB contender. Sure there were a few yrs where the defense was respectable while Sanders, Mathis and Freeney all stayed healthy. And sure he had adequate targets to catch the ball. But we all saw what happened when you removed Manning from the equation.

...I say big-time kudos to the team that signs him.

I think if we get RG3 alot folks will be happy; we have been down the old vet road time for a new approach.

If you are Miami you just bought a big bag of worry; in regards to PM health

Re: Colts Officially Release Peyton Manning (QB Thread #11)

My problem is that I don't want 2 years of above average play and maybe see a playoff game or two. I feel that's all we'd get with PM, I mean he only got 1 ring in Indy and they had 10 years to build around him, why the hell would it be possible for him I come here and win a SB? Let's get a rookie and build a great team and dominate for years, not just for 2 and then say o shit we need a qb again, I know it's Pm, but be honest we were all stoked abou Mcnabb, George, Brunell, and they aren't manning but still I don't see him doing much better

It's actually a pretty badass scenario for Peyton in Miami. He'll face Brady twice a year and play in fantastic weather with young and hungry team.

Really Tom Brady may have something to say about that.

You know what would be more awesome then a redskins super bowl if you would leave this board and actually join a Giants board.

If anyone agrees quote me and post the word "this"

And a $25 + million signing bonus. Haven't confirmed but was told our potential offer would be around 4 years $70-75 million including a signing bonus of around $10 million
