Manning Hoping Avoid the Franchise Tag

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports that CAA Football is pushing for quartebracks Peyton Manning and Drew Brees to be exempt from the application of the franchise tag throughout their careers.

The Colts placed the one-year tag, worth $23.12 million in guaranteed base salary, on Manning in February. Brees is entering the final year of his contract.

Such an exemption would apply to all ten of the plaintiffs in the case, including wide receiver Vincent Jackson (San Diego) and guard Logan Mankins (New England), who were designated with the franchise tag in February.
