    Peyton Manning 2012 prediction - and ESPN speculation re Ravens (merged threads)



    After Colts draft Andrew Luck - they will try to trade Peyton but there will be no takers (do to his contract, etc. etc - and the uncertainty regarding the injury and his recovery). Consequently, the Colt will release Manning and he will become a free agent.

    Prediction: Jets will jump on this and bring Peyton to NY - in the belief that this will give the Jets one or two Superbowls - and give Mark Sanchez the opportunity to learn behind the "master"

    You heard it here first.

    I think the Colts will cut Manning before the league year begins. Even if they trade Manning after paying him that $28 million roster bonus, the cap hit would be huge.

    He's gonna be a Jet. He'll be in NY with his brother to make a zillion bucks plus the Jets hired Tom Moore for a reason.

    Tom Moore was hired by the Jets last June before the Manning injury became clear.
    Only difference now is he is working full time at the facility instead of working from home

    He was not hired just to attract Manning if that's what you're implying

    But I agree the Jets are a likely landing spot for him

    Colts have to cut him and take the hit, as you say OP that contract is prohibitive to any team
    But at least nowadays the days of your rookie first rounder getting over fifty million like Sam Bradford did are over, Luck's contract will be big but manageable

    The Tom Moore thing is just coincidental.

    It will be just too irresistible for the Jets - particularly after Ryan's Superbowl guarantee falls flat. It will be the Bret Farve thing all over again - thinking they can buy a Super Bowl.

    I don't think hiring Moore was a coincidence, those guys are smart. And Manning with that defense could be pretty scary; all in theory of course

    You guys really think the Colts are that hard pressed for Luck, they eat the remainder of Mannings contract?

    I'll take that bet.

    Colts draft Luck. Colts then trade Luck.

    Do an Eli Manning on it so?

    This will be the biggest draft story in years
    Can't wait

    No idea what's going to happen. Anyone trading for Manning is taking a huge risk.

    Colts cut Peyton before his March bonus. Colts draft Luck. Peyton signs with Denver. Denver trades Tebow to Jacksonville.
