We have yet another reason to believe that the Colts will cut Peyton Manning before his $28 million roster bonus is due on March 8.
Albert Breer of NFL.com notes that the Colts owner Jim Irsay, G.M. Ryan Grigson, and coach Chuck Pagano can’t watch Manning throw until April due to rules in the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
The Colts’ medical staff can watch Manning and report back, but they are not allowed to tape the workout.
Longtime Manning teammate Jeff Saturday insists that Manning will play in 2012. It’s hard to imagine Manning playing for the Colts if the team can’t see his on-field progress before investing that kind of money in him.
