After flying to Indianapolis together on Tuesday night, Colts owner Jim Irsay and quarterback Peyton Manning will sit together today to announce that Irsay has decided to release Manning.
“It was a long,emotional flight,” Irsay wrote on Twitter, “now the sun is trying to rise.”
Ashley Adamson of WISH-TV in Indianapolis briefly caught up with Manning at the airport, where he seemed to be in a reflective mood.
“We’re gonna do this the right way. We’ll talk to you guys tomorrow,” Manning said last night. “We’re good. We’re all good.”
Manning has been doing it the right way for 14 years with the Colts, and there’s no doubt that he’ll do it the right way on his last day with the Colts.
