With the recent news that Peyton Manning has undergone neck surgery for the 2nd time, and the fact that he is currently without a contract, Peter King is wondering if the Colts are second guessing whether or not they should sign him for another 5 years. Is it possible that Peyton Manning will hit the free agent market whenever that should happen?
If I was the Cardinals front office, I would seriously consider offering Peyton a permanent contract being paid $1 million more than the highest paid QB in the NFL. Basically this would be an agreement to resign each season as long as he wants and adjust his salary to be $1 million more than whoever the highest paid QB is.
Any chance, even a little, that this is a possibility? Any Cardinals fans out there who wouldn't want Peyton over any other QB available?
Personally I think the guy will play at least another 5 years, and with his talent, could easily take the Cardinals to the Super Bowl and win.
Now, before all you smart a$$es out there start telling me that this won't happen and that the Colts will never let him play for anyone else, I already know all of that. However, I can still hope right?
