INDIANAPOLIS, IN (The Spread) – Colts owner Jim Irsay expects to meet with Peyton Manning sometime in the next seven days to discuss the injured quarterback’s future with the team.
Manning has spent the past five months recovering from his third neck surgery in less than two years, and there have been conflicting reports about how much progress the star quarterback has made.
The Colts owe Manning a $28 million roster bonus by March 8.
Irsay tells the newspaper on Tuesday the Colts would love to have Manning finish his career in Indianapolis ``if he can get healthy and we can look at doing a contract that reflects the uncertainty of the ... healing process with the regeneration of the nerve.''
As of the start of the week, the Colts were 40/1 to win the 2013 Super Bowl after opening at those same odds. They’re also 18/1 to win the AFC Conference next season after oddsmakers opened at that exact number following the 2012 Super Bowl.Want More From TheSpread.com?
