The Peyton Manning ball is now in the Broncos’ court

AP

When long-time Manning family media consigliere Chris Mortensen declares that Peyton has informed the Broncos that he’s “physically and mentally prepared to play at a significant level in 2015,” it may as well have come from the horse’s mouth.

So now the question is whether the Horses really want the horse.  They’ve said they do, because what else are they going to say?  “Thanks for saving us from Tim Tebow and giving us three years of serious contention, now get out of here”?

The biggest question is whether the Broncos prefer to employ Peyton at a lower 2015 cap number than $21.5 million — or at a lower 2015 cash figure than $19 million.

“[G.M. John] Elway has publicly stated that he wants Manning to return, but it is uncertain under what conditions and whether it includes a dramatic restructuring of the veteran’s contract,” Mortensen wrote Friday.

In other words, Peyton doesn’t know whether the Broncos wants him to take less money to stay with the team.  If the Broncos want him to take a lot less — and if Peyton chooses not to — that could result in the Broncos and Manning parting ways before March 9, on which date his $19 million base salary becomes fully guaranteed for 2015.

If Manning fails his physical, the Broncos never have to cross that bridge.  Which may explain why the Broncos have yet to declare that they both want Manning back and want him at $19 million for the coming season.  Which could mean that things will get even more interesting if Peyton passes his physical — and if he doesn’t.

If he passes, the Broncos have to decide whether to pay him $19 million or to cut him before March 9.  If he fails, the question becomes whether Manning would pass a physical administered by another team that would be happy to have him fall into their laps.

A team like, say, the Texans, which didn’t want Manning three years ago and which would now have a chance to rectify that blunder and perhaps finally vault beyond the divisional round of the postseason.

Either way, Mortensen (and, necessarily, Manning) has spoken.  The quarterback is “physically and mentally prepared to play at a significant level in 2015.”  Maybe it’s not a coincidence that the proclamation omitted three key words:  “for the Broncos.”

  1. Say what you will about Manning’s performance towards the end of the year, but I bet that a badly declining Peyton is still better than Osweiler, the free agent options, or any QB that the Broncos could reasonably obtain in the draft. The cap number, though…

    Oof.

  2. The only true success of Peyton Manning in DEN was displacing Christian QB hero, Tim Tebow, and keeping him from making more Christian converts with his heroics, but hey that was the point of all this chicanery!

  3. If he really wants another chance at a ring he needs to take serious paycut.

    Follow Brady’s lead, if your an aging QB who just wants to win, give your team the cap space to sign the players needed to win…

    19 mil is too much… How much does he make off endorsements alone… Dont be Greedy Pey Pey

  4. Corey Dillon, Dominique Rhodes, and Joseph Addai are all better running backs than Barry Sanders was…Hakeem Nicks, David Tyree, and Danny Amendola are better receivers than Randy Moss and TO! Just a few examples of fact because they have more rings! Anyone want to argue with my logic? Waiting, Waiting, Waiting! I didn’t think so. This is the same ridiculous argument that you homers keep making about Brady and Manning. Compare the success of both over the past 10 years (post spygate). SB wins 1 each, SB losses 2 each, AFC Championship wins head to head 2 each, wins pretty even, more passing yards Manning, more td passes Manning, higher completion % Manning, higher QBR Manning, fewer interceptions Brady…let’s add them up…what do you know, Manning wins. Fans will be fans and ignorance will forever be the kryptonite of those who can’t see that Manning and Brady are both amazing, and their “rivalry” is the heart and soul of the NFL. Who really cares who we think is the greatest…you know what they say about opinions!!!!!!

  5. The long balls he threw in the playoffs were pretty bad. I was actually surprised just how much they hung in the air. IMHO he should just retire while he still has some dignity and pride. He’s going to force a team to humilate him before he quits and that’s going to be a shame for such a great player.

  6. I’ve watched Peyton’s career from college on, and I wish him the best of luck. But if I get that Nationwide jingle stuck in my head again I’m going after him.

  7. The man needs to retire. He can no longer throw the out route and teams started to sit on the inside shoulder of the WRs and forced him to throw to the side line. He has nothing left in his arm. This time comes for everyone and it is very apparent in Manning. Can’t win with him anymore, time to move on.

  8. if he does leave then the broncos should make it clear unlike the colts that his leaving was indeed all about the money. everybody understands that yes it is all about the money and getting as much as you can. don’t insult bronco fans the way you did colts fans and say it is not about the money when you sign with somebody else.

  9. They should pay him for one more season, but draft a guy in the 2nd or 3rd round to sit for a season and learn from Manning.

  10. why trash Tebow? He’s a nice guy and he’s out of the league. There’s no need to do this. talk about kicking a guy when he’s down.

  11. @patsasteriskforever, winning vs the best opponents is what matters. Not beating up lowly teams that don’t make the playoffs. What happens come playoff time? Why don’t you look at those stats? Beating the Titans in the regular season padding useless stats doesn’t mean a thing. Winning vs the best in the playoffs does. You need to go get some cheese with your whine.

  12. I’ve banged on Brady for being classless and a cheat; and he is both.

    Demanding to be given a car for a charity appearance, spygate, deflategate, using illegal formations, etc.

    Slimy.

    But it does bother me that Payton still seems to put being paid ahead of another ring. Hey Payton, you’re likely set for life. Maybe your focus in your last year(s) should be trying to surround yourself with talent.

    And that takes cap room.

  13. I sincerely hope Manning has a great season and goes out on top.

    ….of course for me – that means he plays like a god all season but loses in a valiant effort to the Patriots in the AFC Champ game…. (sorry)

    He is a class act and has really made the game of football better….

  14. It’s not really about whether Peyton is better than the alternative. It’s really about the sadness that ensues at the end of each season.

    Makes a great career sadder every year.

  15. With all the impending Free Agents, this is shaping up for the Broncos wanting Manning to take a pay cut….probably somewhere between $5M-$8M. That would reduce his cap number to $16.5M- $13.5M, while still hefty, alot more manageable and allow the Broncos to sign one more of their free agents that they otherwise would not be able to sign.

  16. Hey pats asterisk you forgot to include a boat load of pro bowl players peyton has played with. You also better check your playoff stats again because brady has better stats in every category including qbr. Brady also has the most impressive stat of any QB in the SB era, 9 game winning come from behind 4th. Quarter playoff winning drives. Peyton has exactly one his entire career, Tebow does too

  17. This is really not that hard to understand:

    Peyton, barring injury or Super Bowl win, will not retire until his remaining two years are up. Nobody walks about from $18+ a year.

    The Broncos know that of all available quarterbacks, Manning gives them the best opportunity to win. The post season is always an obstacle, but he still gives them the best odds.

    If they cut Manning, they will likely clean out the roster within a year, but they have so many players at their peak that it doesn’t make sense.

  18. He’s smart enough – I think – to figure out the throws he can no longer make and make adjustments in his game. He won’t be the only QB in the league who can’t make every throw.

  19. All hating aside, this is a classic case of cutting your losses. See what it takes to have him walk away now. You’re better off paying him less and not having him play.

  20. In my perfect world the Broncos will release him, Buffalo will sign him, and EJ Manuel will spend the next year learning from the best.

    Hey, this is my perfect world.

  21. I feel bad for Peyton. His play is gonna decline like Montana did. It would be better for his legacy if he just shut it down. He’s earned the right no doubt but this is just coming from a fans perspective

  22. What is the appeal of Peyton Manning anyway? He’s a perennial choker with no message who looks and talks like Gomer Pyle and has no charisma at all. The point of our lives is not to coddle this loser!

  23. Manning always struck me as one of the rare breed that would know when to walk away without anyone needing to tell him. That he would sense when his performance no longer matched his own level of excellence.

    Unless he dramatically restructures his contract allowing the Broncos to sign more valuable, long-term assets, the only reason he would be coming back now is for the money and to pad his stats.

  24. I wouldn’t pay him 19 mil a year and I seriously doubt the Broncos will either. If he’s willing to play for less, and maybe you can rest him during the season at opportune times, maybe it makes sense.

  25. I really hope they don’t bring him back. I would like to see the Broncos trade places with the Raiders as the seller dwellers. That is in my perfect world 🙂

    Even though he can’t win a Super Bowl to save his career and sucks in the playoffs, he is still pretty damn impressive in the regular season. They’ve already lost their coaching staff, maybe if they lose Peyton Manning they can start from ground zero again and bring back Tebow or some other knucklehead to help drag them back down to the bottom where they belong.

    Not that I hate the broncos or anything 😬

  26. I would love to see Peyton back in the state of Tennessee to finish out his career. He would be back in the AFC South again and he would be great for Mettenberger to sit and watch for a season. Lets not forget that if Peyton does happen to become a free agent, before Mr. Bud Adams passed he stated that “Mr. Manning is my man”….

    If Peyton hits the market Mr. Smith and Mr. Webster, at least throw us fans a bone and go after him….Do it for Bud, bring Manning back to Tennessee!!

    GO TITANS!

  27. When long-time Manning family media consigliere Chris Mortensen declares that Peyton has informed the Broncos that he’s “physically and mentally prepared to play at a significant level in 2015,” it may as well have come from the horse’s mouth…..

    Horse? Thats no way to refer to John Elway..

  28. “In my perfect world the Broncos will release him, Buffalo will sign him, and EJ Manuel will spend the next year learning from the best.”

    That would make the Pats-Bills games a lot more interesting, that’s for sure.

  29. It’s not Peyton’s cap number that is the problem. It’s the free agents the Broncos have doled out millions to in order to build a “win-now” team around Peyton. How do they keep paying them, and adding more? The Broncos can keep pushing cap money out, but it will bury the franchise for years to come once Peyton is gone.

  30. This is going to get funny if Elway decides he can’t afford the $19M for Peyton and lets him walk. Btw Denver fans, Tom Brady has now won 4 Super Bowls.
    Just kiss the rings….

  31. Here’s the problem. Osweiler becomes a free agent after this year. If this is Manning’s last year, you don’t get a look at Osweiler before he becomes a free agent. Of course, the Patriots may find the same problem with Jimmy Garoppolo.

  32. If its an honest physical exam that Manning is given, I don’t think he’ll be able to pass. That farce about his ‘thigh bruises’ as the reason why he threw so poorly at the end of last year is impossible to swallow – look at the videos, he was walking and running with no visible impairment: what kind of thigh bruise only affects your ability to throw, but nothing else? It’s got to be the nerves in his neck, but they’ve kept it quiet – which surprise surprise, was worse cheating than slightly under inflated footballs. Too bad the ‘journalists’ who spent so much time on the stupid Deflategate didn’t research this.

    Hey, this is my perfect world.
    ========================================
    That arm would not make it through November in Orchard Park. Think domes and south if he leaves Denver.

  34. Seriously, they’ve won the division and had a bye each year manning has been there. I do not consider that absolute failure like many of you do. Denver is his best shot at another Super Bowl. Look for them to resign the Thomas duo and bring in Harvin and go back to the passing game like they did the first two years. No more running game. That slowed their momentum.

  35. The guy fell off a cliff at the end of the year. I think the injury had a lot to do with it. Even with the 1 and done playoff problem, he’s still a top 5 qb. Might as well go another year, but if I’m him I’m taking a huge pay cut and telling elway to stack the team.

  36. “…which surprise surprise, was worse cheating than slightly under inflated footballs.”

    How is putting a player on the field that hurts your chance of winning because he has a wonky neck considered cheating?

  37. mannyiac says: Feb 14, 2015 12:22 PM

    Brady has more rings than Peyton,Eli and Archie Manning combined.

    —————————————-

    Yet none of theirs were obtained through cheating. Which means none of theirs has an * by them either.

  38. Peyton wants to pad his stats but he also wants another Super Bowl ring as his first has the asterisk of being earned against Rex Grossman as the opposing QB

  39. The Tebow Curse has claimed Bowlen, Fox, Elway, Manning, Elway’s woman beater son, Shad Khan, Gus Bradley, Rex Ryan, Tannenbaum, Idzik, Woody Johnson and Mark Sanchez. The Patriots will get theirs sooner or later!

  40. Here are his td stats and QBR the last 3 years:

    2012 37 105.8
    2013 55 115.1
    2014 39 101.5

    Everyone clamoring for Manning’s retirement need to get a grip.

    If he decides to play next year he’ll still put up better numbers than 25 other QBs in the league.

    ———————————————————
    When your nap is over and you finish your milk and cookies consider this. History will say Manning(Peyton) was the greatest regular season QB ever statistically. History will also note 9 one and done playoff appearances and the fact he sucked in the one Super Bowl his team won. If regular season stats and simply making the playoffs are your thing then you got your guy. If choking on the big stage is what you want in a QB Mannings your man. If ego and making every last buck means more than team success then you got the man for the job. I prefer a team first, humble, clutch winner.

    ______________________________

    Mettenberger could grope the women of TENN like he did at LSU, and Peyton could sit on their faces like he did to that trainer, Jamie Ann Naughright, at UT!

  43. If you’re only criterion is winning a Super Bowl, then he should definitely retire along with most of the league.

    If winning games, putting up numbers and getting to the playoffs is your main criteria then it’s hard to make a compelling case for retirement based upon the last three seasons.

    ———————————————————
    You’re talking the Broncos. Salary cap is optional. Just ask Elway how they kept his Super Bowl winning teams together.

  45. why is Joe Montana’s name always brought up when talking about the end of a players career? he took the Chiefs to the AFC title game the year after he left the 49er’s and if not for a dropped td pass would have had them in super bowl that season. not a bad ending to his career.

  46. If you’re only criterion is winning a Super Bowl, then he should definitely retire along with most of the league.

    Yes, winning Super Bowls is what it’s all about. That’s why they play, to win the Super Bowl.

  47. “…which surprise surprise, was worse cheating than slightly under inflated footballs.”

    How is putting a player on the field that hurts your chance of winning because he has a wonky neck considered cheating?
    —————————————————-
    Because they lied on the injury reports for 2 months.

  48. What is the appeal of Peyton Manning anyway? He’s a perennial choker with no message who looks and talks like Gomer Pyle and has no charisma at all. The point of our lives is not to coddle this loser!
    ——————
    I see, you like the ray-rays, the sharpers, etc. Yeah, ok.

  49. This guy had the best offense in the league 2 years ago with everyone healthy for the Super Bowl and what did he do? 8 points. Nuff’ said. 8 points with all those weapons. Embarassing.

  50. If Manning had any intestinal fortitude at all, he would demand his release so he could go play for the Browns.
    Browns need a QB.
    Manning needs to cement his legacy.
    Perfect match.

  51. Pay-a-Ton. Why not start Brock? I want to see him.

    If he has a bad year, it will likely be the same result as a Maning-led team: watching the Super Bowl.

    But at least Brock would get a year of experience under his belt, given that Peyton won’t allow him any.

  52. When long-time Manning family media consigliere Chris Mortensen declares that Peyton has informed the Broncos that he’s “physically and mentally prepared to play at a significant level in 2015,” it may as well have come from the horse’s mouth.
    ____________________

    Wait; a reporter stating another reporter is reliable and accurate? Like the accuracy or Mort’s reporting on deflategate?
    Now I’ve read it all.

    Manning to Texans; he needs a dome to be successful more than ever, now.

  53. I think many of you are missing a key point, he can’t just take a pay cut. The only way to restructure the contract is to extend the contract, and no way the Broncos add years to the deal. They either have to cut him and resign him at a lower rate, or pay him the $19 mil. Peyton can’t just decide to lower the value of the deal because he is a swell guy. The players association would never allow that

  54. I think sometimes players don’t know how to go out on top. Manning is already a HOFer and really has nothing more to prove. If the Broncos want him back, but not at $19M, they could release him and re-sign him to a team friendly contract.

  55. Why do people so easily give Manning the “Best Regular Season” QB award?

    Regular Season W-L
    Brady 160-47 .773 Winning Pct
    Manning 179-77 .699 Winning Pct

    That is significant!

    Brady woulkd have to go 19-30 to get down to Peyton’s level.

    The fact these are the only QB’s in the history of the game to be 100+ games over .500 is also quite remarkable, we’ve witnessed pure greatness folks.

  56. too funny how people will not recoginze just how bad Manning is in big games. It goes all the way back to his days at Tenn trying to beat Florida. Even last year where he was a total puddle against Seattle, his final #s did not look too bad because he will pile up garbage stats when game has been decided already. Bottom line is he has been the QB 10 times when his team went 1-n-done and NINE of those ten loses his team was the FAVOTITE! He comes up little in the biggest spots…he is Tony Romo with more hype.

  57. So logic of patsies fans.. if its not a team game anymore and it all comes down to rigns by a single player vs another. Blount must be a better RB than Barry Sanders haha And obviously trent differ is a better QB than Dan Marino then Correct???? where is your logic on that one

  58. Why do Bronco fans who like to accuse the Pats of cheating, yet never mention how both of Elway’s Supe Bowl wins were with illegal rosters because the Broncos cheated on the salry cap? They had players who should not have been on those rosters if they had not cheated the cap…something they admitted to doing.

  59. 3 Years = 3 Playoff appearances and 1 Superbowl appearance.

    Oh right, he didn’t win the Superbowl, though.

    Dude is clearly washed up. Should have retired years ago.

  60. In 14 years of playoff appearances, Manning has 9 one and done’s. 7 at home. 5-9 in Wild Card and Division play. Let that sink in. For those of you who are wondering, Bradshaw was 8-1. Brady 9-2. Staubach 8-2. Young 7-2. Marino 7-3. Aikman 5-3. Montana 7-4.

  61. Manning knows how much an elite QB is worth to a franchise. Osweiler has shown none of the promise that Rodgers did when he was behind Favre. Take a look at this year’s class of free agent QBs: Sanchez, Gabbert, McCown. Who are the Broncos going to get if they decide to play hardball with Manning? He could just give horse face the finger and retire. Then where would the Broncos be?

    Paying 21 million to Manning is worth it because there are no viable alternatives.

  62. I think we can all agree, if Manning played for Belicheat and the Pats he would have more Super Bowl wins than Brady does now.

    Read up on Hugh Millen’s comments last month about a “two-time Super Bowl winning coach” that he played for (cough Shanahan cough)… turns out that cheating the salary cap wasn’t the full extent of the dodgy goings-on of those late-90s Broncos teams. Which is perhaps semi-interesting when considering the respective legacies of John Elway and Brett Favre, for what it’s worth.

  64. I believe his dad is his agent so he probably concocted the ‘I may retire mea culpa’ to ensure the bronco’s don’t discuss a pay cut.

    My take he will be back of course to set more records for his ego and denver will pony up to the bar but only one more year. Then its rebuild time whether they like it or not and all that high priced defensive talent can hit the road as well.

    Belichick would of traded Peyton for some 2nd round draft picks after his first ‘One and Done’ playoff appearance.

    As a fan, I’ll take a superbowl ring over stats over a blowout superbowl loss any day, thank you very much.

    So would Peyton, I expect.

    So would you, I expect.

  67. In the end, who out there is better than Peyton and available?

    That’s why he’ll be a Bronco next year.

    Although…

    Possible teams to try and lure him away?

    49ers. Probably the most SB ready team without a ready QB.

    Maybe the Texans. Peyton to the Texans would make them instant playoff contenders at a minimum. Plus he could pull the Favre-to-the-Vikings style move!

    I don’t know about their cap situations, though, so don’t know if they can afford him.

  68. 2007 the NFL changed the rules letting each team provide their own footballs. The charge was led by Manning & Brady.
    Dismiss deflate gate all you want, but please show me the sport that non-regulation balls (pucks) are allowed. Corked bats, spitballs, smaller basketballs, more pliable pucks, etc… Every one of those sports tosses out teams ( pitchers ) that use doctored, non regulation equipment.
    Simply said, Peyton needs to cheat better to win, and Brady is a fraud. He might as well be Gaylord Perry.

    Here are his td stats and QBR the last 3 years:
    2012 37 105.8
    2013 55 115.1
    2014 39 101.5

    With a playoff record of 2-3 with two one and dones.

    ______________________

    Yes, because Manning made Moore play two yards shallow and.get burned…..

    Don’t forget when the Jets beat him too! Oh wait that was Caldwell who called a time out to let the jets beat them.

    Step off trolls.

  70. If Payton really wants to win and truly is a genuine football player…he’ll take a paycut needed to get the Broncos the players they need, PERIOD

    Payton already is a filthy rich man, if money is more important at this stage of his career, than he needs to go and enjoy that money while he can. Money really is the root of all Evil these days. Half the players in the NFL now days care less if they win or lose a game. I hate watching the end of a NFL game and seeing half the players of the team about to lose the game joking around laughing and smiling with their teammates…it makes me SICK to my stomach to see this now days. I remember when i was a kid watching football where ALL PLAYERS actually cared about losing or winning. Now days it makes no difference to half of all NFL players. Sad times indeed.

    Lets see if Mr. Manning is a true player of the game by taking a pay cut for the team.

  71. Stop the Peyton Manning stories. I knew this was coming but I thought there would be enough news to not repeat the Brett Favre saga every offseason. I’m cool watching a living legend no matter what the critics say about his playoff struggles. He’s going to play next season, next topic! On to the draft and free agency.

  72. If Manning won’t take a significant paycut to make another run at a SB then screw him. Dude has more than enough money and they need cap space to field a good roster. He’s their best option for now, but if he refuses to get paid a reasonable salary it’s time to look to the future. I’m guessing they’ll settle on about $12M and he’ll give it one last shot.

  73. rollotomasi14 says: Feb 14, 2015 1:37 PM

    If you’re only criterion is winning a Super Bowl, then he should definitely retire along with most of the league.

    Yes, winning Super Bowls is what it’s all about. That’s why they play, to win the Super Bowl.
    ************************************************
    Fans of teams that have never won a Super Bowl ignore this but it’s so true.

    There are 31 failures and 1 winner every year.

  74. Elway gave him the option to retire without having to be flat out told “you aren’t worth your contract number anymore Peyton”, but he didn’t take the hint. Now he will get cut. Some team happy to get better for one year will throw the money at him, but he doesn’t have what it takes to win in the playoffs anymore. Elway knows it.

  75. Who you take in a choice between Manning or Brady at playoff time says it all. You would have to be stupid to bet on Manning. The rest of the stats and comparisons pale when compared to who would you roll with at QB. You take the closer over the choke very time.

  76. Its hard I know when a 7th rounder overshadows the entitled kid with the NFL lineage that couldn’t quite measure up.

    Even spoiled brother Eli had to have his daddy intervene so as not to get drafted by the chargers.

    Brady has outshined that whole family. Sorry but its true.

  77. This is about business. Period.

    Despite all the hand wringing from arm chair cap experts, the Broncos have a good chunk of cap space this offseason ($26mil) and are projected to have more than that in 2016.

    I understand they may lose an oft-injured, bad run blocking, TD catching TE. Not bothered by that.
    I also don’t think they’d have a problem paying Brock-O when he begins a (unproven) FA.

    But Manning is have to restructure. No other team is gonna pay him $19million so this is about good sound financial practice. $19 million is just too much for a 39 year old QB.

    If Peyton doesn’t get that, well, then the game has passed him up. No doubt about it.

  78. Does Denver really want the best backup qb or next best available qb to take over in case Peyton gets injured?? It isn’t Brock Oswieler or Tim Tebow. It’s Zac Dysert. He is going to be a great qb. Whether it’s in Denver or with another team.
