Crazy and Interesting

Recommended Posts

Peyton's gonna make a ton of money this year regardless of wether or not he plays. That's the crazy part.

The interesting part is how he wanted to protect the team.


While Peyton Manning's playing status for 2011 remains uncertain after his third neck surgery in 19 months, his paychecks will keep coming.


Manning collected a $3 million roster bonus as of 4 p.m. ET on Saturday, as the Indianapolis Colts had not placed him on season-ending injured reserve.


Manning, who had a one-level cervical fusion Thursday, will collect $26 million in 2011, regardless of whether he returns.


The Colts can opt out of Manning's contract after this year. They have that option because Manning instructed agent Tom Condon to protect the team if he doesn't have the positive recovery doctors expect.



Hell...he's filthy rich so I guess taking $26 mill for possibly doing nothing bothers his conscience.
