Agent: No Peyton Manning-Indianapolis Colts talks until after season - ESPN Peyton Manning will not have a new contract before the season ends. Manning's agent, Tom Condon, confirmed that he informed Indianapolis Colts president Bill Polian in a face-to-face meeting Wednesday that the 13-year veteran quarterback will not discuss or negotiate a new contract until after the 2010 season. Condon said Polian's reaction was simple: "OK." ... Condon also said there have been "zero negotiations" between the Colts and Manning. Come on Michael Silver, you know you want to write it. And just to quote from that ridiculous article: Brady, however, canâ€™t help but notice the way that the only NFL quarterback who can be considered his peer, Peyton Manning, has been treated by the Coltsâ€™ ownership. Manning, who signed a reported $99.2 million contract extension in 2004 that will void after the 2010 season, looks to be in line for another unprecedented payday: Last February, five days before the Coltsâ€™ Super Bowl XLIV defeat to the New Orleans Saints, Indy owner Jimmy Irsay said of a contract extension, â€śYou know itâ€™s going to get done. I think itâ€™s clear, and weâ€™ll start on it this summer. â€¦ And itâ€™ll be the biggest [contract] in history; thereâ€™s not much doubt about that.â€ť Could the Colts trade Manning? Why not? Since Silver loves to make up all sorts of nonsense like this, tell me why he wouldn't write the same thing about Manning. Could things really get that ugly? Say no agreement on an extension is reached before the start of the 2010 campaign and Brady, as is likely, tables any contract discussions until the season is complete. Even if he wanted to leave via unrestricted free agency, the Pats would surely franchise him. At that point Brady could threaten to stay away until the 10th week of the season before signing his one-year tender, surrendering only a pro-rated share of his salary and potentially extending the stalemate into another offseason. Itâ€™s possible such a nightmarish state of affairs could compel the Pats to consider trading him. Yeah, that BS article still bothers me.
