Dungy: Manning a Colt or retired

Peter King spoke with Tony Dungy who sheds some light on the thought process Peyton Manning may undergo while making his decision:

On NBC last night, Manning’s former coach, Tony Dungy, said he thought Manning would play for the Colts in 2012 or not at all. In discussions with me off-air, Dungy said Manning is such a creature of habit, with intimate knowledge of his receivers’ habits, that he wouldn’t want to go anywhere (particularly, I noted) in an era when teams don’t have offseason control of their players and Manning might not be able to get to know them well before they start playing together.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
