Regarding Colts 2012 $: Manning option (28M) + salary (7.4M) = 35.4M.Luck bonus plus salary = approx 15.1M. Total = 50.5M— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) January 20, 2012
It should be noted this refers to the check Mr. Irsay would write, not the cap implications. While other outlets are erroneously reporting this number is "too expensive" for the Colts, reality suggests that the cap is often more of a limiting factor than cash and both QBs could in fact fit under the cap.
@18to88 you think 2 QBs could fit under cap? How can any money be spent on the rest of team? Will 1 play D or ST? Lots of questions.
@rdenton411 It's not the 2012 cap that's the problem. No way to keep Manning w/o a cap bomb going off in future.
That's the spirit! @paulcareyjr
@buymymonkey His injury is super serious, no need for him to come back with the chances that he is seriously hurt, that is all
@paulcareyjr You're right. I was half joking. I've been trying lately not to post sarcastic stuff - so sorry about that.
