    Congratulations to the Colts and Peyton. Both parties deserved to get the deal done, and I tip my hat to Peyton for not requesting to be the highest-paid player in the NFL.

    We as Patriots fans like to rag on the Colts and Peyton, but this deal was finally completed and with dignity.

    Will be fun watching Peyton and Tom continue to duel it out atop the NFL.

    This is a silly post. 

    Of course it's a lot of money for one player - just as the amount that Brady got was a lot of money for one player. 

    If Brady had gotten this deal we'd be praising the Patriots and Brady.

    Give credit where credit is due and move on. The Colts and Manning both agreed on a very reasonable deal. I tip my cap to Peyton for not leveraging the Colts into making him the highest-paid player in the NFL.

    As much as I have my own personal rivalry with the Colts, I must say this is good for them and Manning.  Looking to sign for less then expected so the team can spread some money around, props to him.  Really would have hated to see them drag this through the mud. Now that this is behind them, they can move on.

    Totally Agree.  It is fun watching Peyton and Tom duel it out for many more yrs to come.

    You knew though the Colts had to do this.  He is the man in Indy - they are going to Ride him like Miami rode Marino ... it was just a matter of time.

    Manning deserves every penny of it.  When Brady and Manning retire it will be a little like when Magic and Bird retired.

    good work by both Manning and Colts.

    As much as we hate the colts and Manning - credit when it is due.

    Well done.

    Looks like he took a lesson from Tom and actually thought of the team as far as money goes. Finnally something I can respect frpm Peyton other than his sometimes funny commercials.

    Gee, wonder that underdoggg will say about this.  The press is only right if quoting "sources close to."  Sounds like this guy, a NFL reporter isn't buying the spin.  Wonder what doggg will think of that.  Puzzles, adding up 2 + 2, and the nonesuch.  Hmmmm.  PM takes a front-end loaded 23M deal for three years, but he's looking out for team mates and helping management.  Sounds fishy to me.

    Re: Peyton Manning - 5 YRS - 90 MIL

    The real question is...why did he take this long to sign?  He mentioned that he didn't want to work out the details on a new contract during the season.  Fair enough, but the season ended in January.  If he REALLY was not interested in being the highest-paid player then why did he not simply sign a contract similar to what Brady signed for, at about the same time?
