Reportedly being the range that Manning's proposed contract would be in w/$30 Million guaranteed. That's $6 Million a year guaranteed.

Uhm, perhaps he should just come back home.

$30 million TOTAL...over 5 years?...we could have paid that?

This does not seem like the REAL offer

It was $60M total with $30M guaranteed.

Considering the old PM contract with the Colts was $90 over 5 years with about $51 (57%) guaranteed ($23 last year and $28 option bonus), AAC at $18, this offer seems a little less in value: $60 over 5 years with $30 (50%) guaranteed, AAC at $12.

some of you are mentioning that we could have offered the same money, i agree, but i still don't think its all about the money with PM. By drafting Luck, he needs to play now and if we would have signed Manning for 5 years, i don't think AL would have sat that long and who could blame him. And Manning with his competative nature would not step aside say within 2 years......it is what it is, even though they are friends no way can they be on the same team.

With that kind of offering it should be obvious to everyone that Peyton CAN THROW THE BALL and will be ready to play at a very high level when next season begins. I'm pretty sure the Broncos, especially John Elway, can accurately judge his throwing ability.

It has only been rumored to have been offered. Just like Peyton's arm has been rumored to have gotten back to shape.

I will wait and see what the real offer is like.

Ugh...........one more time altogether........its about the total cost to the cap by 2 QBs and how that keeps the team too shallow in depth to compete (see last season). Jim could give him 60 large out of his wallet if it didn't affect the cap.

Peyton gave them the AARP discount :).

So with incentives and everything, he would only max out at $12 mil a year? He deserves way more. Even if you don't want to give it to him guaranteed, let his performance get him paid while it helps get your team to the playoffs

Yeah, at least they can play the BP trick of backloading the contact ala Freeney.

$100/5 years with $30 guaranteed. base salaries 6,6,6,6,46 from 2012-2016 respectively.

The Colts didn't release him because of the money, although it seems that way, they released him because they wanted to move forward, so I think they still release him whether it 's a 28M dollar bonus or a 15M dollar bonus.

Manning isn't going to go to another to get a lot of money, he wants to win the SB, and is looking for the team that can get him there. The money is somewhat irrelevant, so saying that he should come back is just wrong, because the money was not a big part of his release.

I disagree.. If the money wasn't what it was.. 28 million option bonus plus another 35 million and change in base salaries over the next few years, it would have been picked up and the rebuild wouldn't be in full force. Since the $ amounts were so high it was much easier for Irsay to go in a different direction.

Your saying the money made the decision easier to move forward...ok, that's fair enough. It's kinda what I'm saying. I'm saying they were going to move forward and the money just helped further that decision.

According to Elway, Peyton "threw the ball great". Who's a better judge than John Elway?

What Elway says and what Elway offers in terms of a contract with provisions that relate to PM's arm strength/health are two different things.

I prefer to see what the contractual provisions are in the offer that demonstrates Elway's confidence in PM's arm.

Lots of if not most contracts have incentives. Nonetheless, he's being offered $90,000,000.00 over 5 years.

You people need to stop. This is based on comments from a Denver newspaper editor. The truth is PM wants a contract that would reflect where his Colts contract would be.....i.e. 4 years $70mm.

ITS ALL SPECULATIVE! By a Mike Klis of the Denver Post.

You guys got that?

From my understanding it will resemble his contract with the Colts.

So much for a noodle arm...

the NFL is a ruthless business..... If Manning was only 50% of his old self I guarantee a team would still sign him... and upgrade their team.

I have seen the figure in more than one place. Why are you so concerned with what us "guys" say?

So you believe Irsay lied about having PM back?

Because I keep hearing false information being said as gospel truth. We don't know if money was even mentioned. Due to the absence of Peyton's agent, Tom Condon, it seems a reasonable inference that money was never even mentioned. Just sayin.....the figure ($90 mm 5 years) is a rumor, something of which I have had enough of.

No, I think he did want him back, but it would have been better to move on. He wanted him back. I hate that word "lie" because no one (not me either) realizes how hard it is to be an owner of a football team.

    • https://www.stampedeblue.com/2024/4/1/24118330/i-pity-the-fool-mock-draft     Trade Colts 2nd round (440)   For   Packers pick 58 and 91 (456)   Packers select Zach Frazier C West Virginia 6'2 314lbs Logic: Packers replace Jon Meyers who gave up 5 sacks and had a pff grade of 55.8   Colts trade pick 58 and Kwity Paye   For   Saints Marshon Lattimore CB 27 years old and a conditional 2025 4th (depending on snaps could be 3rd) From Over the cap The team trading for Lattimore would take on his contract as is. They would have the decision to either pick up the option to defer the cap charges or to simply take all of the hit in 2024. Here is the cost on the cap if the team picks up the option in the contract:   Year Salary Cap Charge Dead Money 2024 $15,000,000 $12,000,000 2025 $18,000,000 $0 2026 $18,500,000 $0 2027 (void) $0 $0 Lattimore has no guaranteed money in his contract after 2024 so there is nothing that would lock a team into him beyond this year. Colts Logic: We wanted some experience in the secondary. We wanted a shutdown corner. So we give the Saints a offer they can not refuse. In the first 2 rounds we address most of our defensive woes. Saints Logic: Saints are switching to a 4-3 defense this year and just let Michael Thomas walk. They have always been cap wizards but this may be the year to start a new with the changes listed above. Lattimore has only played 17 games these past two seasons and even though he's a top 12 CB when healthy he has been dinged up. Kwity Paye can start at DE until Chase Young is healthy.
    • Ballard should have never cut him. I want Ogletree on the team as well considering charges were dropped (I believe), but his whole fiasco with his fiance where battery might have been involved was way more of a sensitive topic and understandable of being cut for than Rodgers friend betting 1k on his account on a Colts run stat over/under. That's the worse thing Rodgers was found guilty of, and now we have Colts fans trying to convince themselves we need a RD1 CB pick after 3 were chosen in last year's draft...    He did a podcast detailing what he bet on with Franklin and Speed in case others haven't seen it. Much ado about nothing imho and it's obvious the locker room still like him/didn't think he was negatively trying to affect the outcome of games, and they would know best on that over anyone.    
    • Yeah... I don't buy it... BUT... if there is someone you might have to take seriously about something like that... it's Jeremiah. Remember how he absolutely killed that last mock with predicting the exact trade and exact picks for the Texans? Lets see if he has similarly good sources on the Colts... 
    • There're a couple of things that seems off about this to me.   1) The Colts moving up in the 1st. 2) Moving up for a CB after Ballard just spent the pre-draft presser complementing the CB group.
    • What he “projects” and what he would play are two completely different things. Idk why people sleep on DeJean, he’s going to surprise a lot of people wherever he ends up going. The kid is a DAWG.
