Irsay: Manning To Get Extension

Here we are at the Week 2 juncture of the current NFL season and already questions are being asked about Indianapolis Colts starting quarterback Peyton Manning’s current contract. Let’s clarify at least one thing immediately: Manning’s current contract expires next year.

But if owner Jim Orsay has anything to do with it, an extension will be a done deal before this season is over.

According to Irsay:

“With Peyton, it’s about the last thing you worry about. You know that he’s going to be with the top guys at the position. It comes down to just getting things worked out and moving things forward. I expect it to quietly get done, but there are no conversations going on with the season going on.”

I think I am being obvious here when I say that the Colts’ fortunes rest with Manning and his future success. And it has been proven that Manning is a winner, as evidenced by his regular season win-loss record along with a Super Bowl ring.

Unlike his father Bob, son Jim is an owner who actually gets it. He realizes who his bread and butter is and has compensated Manning very well; therefore, I expect Manning to remain an Indianapolis Colt for the remainder of his career.
