Irsay discusses Peyton's contract again

ANDERSON, Ind. (AP)—Colts owner Jim Irsay says he still plans to make Peyton Manning the NFL’s highest-paid player, even if that requires putting the franchise tag on the four-time league MVP next season.

Manning has one more year left on his current deal. Irsay had hoped to give Manning an extension during the offseason, but the uncertain labor situation and the uncapped season have complicated negotiations.

At the team’s first training camp practice Monday, Irsay told reporters that Manning’s agent and team president Bill Polian have been discussing an extension.

Irsay gave no timetable for an agreement.

That's great and I have no doubt that Peyton will retire a Colt.  BUT, I was really hoping that his contract extension would get done this offseason.  Now, reading this, I am really starting to think it will not be done until next year.  And if it isn't done before next year, there is a bigger chance we don't see football in 2011. 

BOOOO
