Peyton Manning Injury Update: Manning Will Play in 2012, Probably Not For Colts According To Source

NFL Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio is reporting that a source close to the situation beleive that current Inidanapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning will be playing the 2012 NFL season, just likely not for Jim Irsay and the Colts.

According to Florio’s source, Indianapolis will cut Peyton before the March 8 deadline of his $28 million bonus, as well as the $26 million he ‘earned’ in 2011 sidelined with his neck injury.

Florio also mentioned that Tony Dungy, Peyton’s longtime coach in Indy, said during the Super Bowl XLVI Pregame show on Sunday that when speaking to Irsay earlier in the week he was obviously under a lot of stress about what to do with his former MVP and Super Bowl winner QB. Dungy noted it ‘may be right’ for Peyton to move on to another franchise at this point in his career.

Andrew Brandt, a former NFL executive with the Packers, had this very telling tweet earlier Sunday:

Well, he certainly isn’t packing it up Mr. Irsay, could he join Pete Carroll out here in Seattle?
