    Colts owner Jim Irsay says he still plans to make Peyton Manning the NFL's highest-paid player, even if that requires putting the franchise tag on the four-time league MVP next season. Manning has one more year left on his current deal. Irsay had hoped to give Manning an extension during the offseason, but the uncertain labor situation and the uncapped season have complicated negotiations. At the team's first training camp practice Monday, Irsay told reporters that Manning's agent and team president Bill Polian have been discussing an extension. Irsay gave no timetable for an agreement.

    Would it not suck major butt for the Colts if Peyton Manning left next off-season?

    this is just a formality ................... can anyone imagine a scenario where peyton DOESN'T retire a Colt ............. ? (of course, I'm sure Packer fans couldn't have imagined Favre playing elsewhere)

    It would be BEAUTIFUL if Tom Brady left the Patriots.

    Manning is going no where. Neither is Brady.

    Wishful thinking guys.

    Could? More like 'better' if they can't hammer out an extension.

    Cover your butt more like it. Business is business...

    Imagine if one of them went to the NFC. It would be Brady vs. Manning in at least one Super bowl.

    I noticed that as soon as I had posted it, but I hoped no one else noticed.
