• Manning and Irsay in contact about Manning’s future with Colts

    February 17, 2012 No comments

    There’s new information surrounding the future of Colts quarterback Peyton Manning.

    In an interview with WTHR-TV’s Sports Director Dave Calabro Thursday evening, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay confirmed that he and Peyton are in talks right now, trying to keep him on the team.

    Irsay said not to expect the ugly divorce forecast in some reports. Irsay said,  “I’ve never looked at it as a divorce no matter what happens, along those lines. It’s really not. It’s just wrong to paint it that we’re not close because we always will be and we always have been.”

    Irsay said he has been talking in person and texting with Peyton. He says the conversation has been “upbeat and positive.”

    Irsay would love to see Manning finish his career in a Colts uniform, but said that there are issues to work through in the next three weeks.

    Irsay says his goal is to reach a “unified decision” which is good for Peyton and the future of the Colts.

    The Colts have until March 8th to release Manning or pay him a $28 million bonus.
