Big Contract Coming in for Manning

Bill Polian says that the contract Peyton Manning is expected to get will be the richest in NFL history! But a labor situation could affect things, Polian says.

“It’s bound to have some effect,” Polian told WEEI.com. “What we don’t know is what the system is going forward. It makes it really difficult working out a deal that makes sense for everybody because you don’t know what the cap will be, what the ramifications are, how things count. All of that makes it a little difficult. We’ve been going slowly along with Tom Condon because we’re trying to formulate some things that will fit no matter what the system is…

“We can’t get into the nitty-gritty because we don’t mow what the rules will be. And that will clarify itself as the year goes on because there will be talks, people will understand what’s on the table and what’s not on the table. It’s not like you’re going to get a deal in October, I don’t think. If that happens it would be great. But at least you can get a feel for the way things are going.”
