Colts cut ‘Super’ Manning
@SportsBata ..nuff said
“This is difficult because of the things Peyton has done for our city, our state and our franchise,” Irsay said. “There will be no other Peyton Manning.”
Irsay said Manning’s No. 18 “will never be worn again by a Colt on the field.”
“We all know that nothing lasts forever,” Manning said. “Times change, circumstances change, and that’s the reality of playing in the NFL.” – espn
#NFL Indianapolis Colts cut ‘Super’ (Peyton) Manning, today, in a news conference at 12PM! Manning and Colts owner Jim Irsay took a private flight together, last night, discussed the move, and even took a car ride home together from the airport. Manning, 36, played his entire 14-year career with the Colts, was a four-time NL MVP, won one Super Bowl, played in every game, and posted a .675 winning percentage! The Colts had till tomorrow to cut Manning, or they would have had to pay up $28 Million on his guaranteed contract! Manning became a liability after three neck surgeries in six months; and missing the entire 2011-2012 due to the vulnerable injury. He is the best QB to play the game, minus the multiple championships. Maybe the Jets will entice him to join their squad, and send current QB (Mark) Sanchez ‘packing’ to Miami (Dolphins)!
