Colts | Time for Manning to Get Paid - from www.KFFL.com
Tue, 20 Jan 2004 20:19:55 -0800

John Oehser, of Colts.com, reports Indianapolis Colts owner and Chief Executive Officer Jim Irsay is prepared to make QB Peyton Manning the richest man in the NFL. "I'm willing to make him the highest-paid player in the league, but it has to be within reason because we have to be able to field an entire team," Irsay said. Manning's current contract expired at the end of this season. The Colts will either ink the 2003 NFL Co-MVP to a long-term deal or designate him as their franchise player, meaning Indianapolis will have to pay him the average salary of the top five highest-paid quarterbacks in the league.

...well, looks like they really want to retain Manning; even it means giving up the team that brought them to the AFC Championship this year.

Who would they get rid of?

I believe it is Mike Vick who is the highest paid player!

Cato June and Dwight Freeney both expected to be free agents if not resigned! So I think this Defense is going to be split apart and they will probably try and fill the wholes through the draft!

I think Manning is the highest paid player in the league right now. After he signed that new deal. Close to Vicks 10/$130M

He falls 31 million short. He signed a 7 yr/$99 million contract.
