I just read on Profootballtalk that Manning and Brees are asking to be exempt from the Franchise Tag for the rest of thier careers. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/07/19/peyton-manning-and-drew-brees-request-settlement-terms/
Really, why would he want this? My only thought would be that he is tired of how the Colts do things. Can it really be about money? Because Polian has always made it clear that he has no problem with making Peyton the leagues highest paid player. Does anyone else have any thoughts on this? I for one would be absolutely bitter if Peyton left the Colts. I hope this isnt the case.
