Mark Kreigel of FOXSports says there are no viable options other than to draft Andrew Luck. Repetitive? Yes. Wrong? Quite possibly. But trying to guess what Bill Polian will do is a difficult task:
That leaves three possible scenarios. First, Manning agrees to restructure his contract, stays on as a starter for a year or two and imparts his great wisdom on a kid who attended his quarterback camps. This makes for a happy ending, but highly unlikely.
The Colts can trade Manning after he receives his bonus.
Or they can cut him.
Either way, it’s time this inevitability dawned on the citizens of Indianapolis: they’re stuck with Luck.
