Andrew Luck is pretty much already an Indianapolis Colt, while Peyton Manning is as good as gone—we can all agree on that.
While drafting Luck may appear to be the wise decision for the Colts, as he's a once-in-a-decade quarterback prospect, Bill Polian believes that Manning will return "at a high level."
It’s marked [improvement] from where he was back in September. He threw it accurately, he threw it with a good, tight spiral, and he threw it with velocity. Generally, he looked like a pretty confident quarterback out there.”
Confident or not, Manning's days as a Colt are numbered, as Indianapolis will likely be making one of the boldest transactions in the history of the NFL: cutting a future Hall of Fame quarterback in Peyton Manning.
If Polian's predictions are accurate, then one lucky franchise is going to be receiving one remarkable gift from the Colts this offseason.
The deadline for whether the Colts decide to cut Manning is set to be March 8, as that's when he is owed a whopping $28 million by Indy.
