Manning Says He Wants to Get Back to Work

Colts quarterback Peyton Manning who’s still recovering from surgery on May 23 to address a bulging disk in his neck, issued a statement after the NFL Players Association executive board and 32 team reps voted unanimously to approve a new collective bargaining agreement with owners according to Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star.

“I want to get back to work,” Manning said.

“My objectives were two-fold when joining the group of named plaintiffs in the labor-related lawsuit. First, to show unified strength on behalf of benefiting all players; second, to see a resolution that recognizes the interests of players and management. I believe both objectives have been achieved.”

He continued: “As a fan of the game, I’m pleased the two sides have reached a deal and, as a professional, I want to get back to work.”
