Irsay Says Report on Team Deciding to Take Luck with First Pick Not True

Colts owner Jim Irsay denied a report that the team has discussed moving a $28 million option bonus owed quarterback Peyton Manning on March 8 according to CBSSports.com. The bonus would trigger the final four years of Manning’s contract and prevent him from becoming a free agent.

Irsay also denied an ESPN report that the Colts have definitively decided to select Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with the No. 1 overall pick in April. Other potential top prospects include Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III.

“There has been no discussion of a deadline push,n just like ’98 with Manning/Leaf..u have 2 go thru a long,disciplined process of evaluation,” Irsay tweeted Sunday, referring to the 1998 draft in which the Colts selected Manning over Ryan Leaf.
