Manning Gets Slapped with the Franchise Tag

Four-time league MVP Peyton Manning has been given the exclusive franchise tag by the Colts, meaning he will be paid $23 million next season and the Colts will have exclusive rights to negotiate with their franchise quarterback.

The ongoing saga continues with the QB, as the team wants to get a deal done to avoid having the tag on him, but at the same time, they in no way want to lose him, so felt that was the best thing for the team and Manning to keep him on the roster.
