Manning won’t be a cap casualty

We’ve been saying for weeks that all of the doomsayers who claim the Colts cannot afford to keep Peyton Manning on the roster are wrong. J. I. Halsell notes the simple facts for everyone:



Does that mean he’s staying? Nope. That means that the Colts need Manning healthy by March 8, 2012 to keep him and then have some juggling to do with their cap in the years that follow.  2012 isn’t a problem however due to Manning. Dwight Freeney and Dallas Clark have huge cap numbers in 2012.

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.
