ESPN: Colts To Part With Peyton Wednesday

“The Indianapolis Colts will release franchise quarterback Peyton Manning.”


Manning signed a very lucrative long-term contract with the Colts one year ago, after a 4700-yard passing season. Then came the surgeries, the lost season, and now this.

While I really liked watching Manning march his offense down the field for last-minute touchdowns, my hope is that he doesn't wind up with the Washington Redskins next season. We've had plenty of aging Pro Bowlers sign big contracts only to flame out one or two seasons later. Our next quarterback must come from the upcoming draft.
