It's Looking More And More Likely That Peyton Manning Is Finished

4

**** I know I know it's Stampede Blue, but this is getting pretty freakin' nuts/serious for Pey Pey and group We also now know, from Peyton himself, that his new contract is essentially a one-year deal with a four-year extension. This structure was suggested by Peyton himself back in July when it was put together. This means that Peyton knew he was hurt back then, knew it was serious, and provided the Colts an 'out' should he not get healthy enough to play again after 2011. The contract, I was the one that helped construct it in the manner that it is. It’s a one-year deal with a four-year extension, if you will. It was my recommendation, that I wasn’t healthy when I signed the contract and if I’m not healthy in February I think it’s fair for the Colts to be able to make their decision there. For those of you still wondering what all this means, the bottom line is this: Peyton Manning has to be healthy and ready to play football again by December or January, or the Colts are going to have to release him.
