According to an Adam Schefter report, sources close to Peyton Manning are saying, if the Indianapolis Colts were to release him, he would be willing to work a "flexible" contract with his new team. Basically, Manning would work a deal that would guarantee little money, with most of the salary in either roster bonuses, or on the field performance incentives. This could alleviate a lot of the health concerns teams may have for Manning, and make it easier to sign the leagues only 4-time MVP.
With all the reports that Manning likes South Florida, and owns a condo in Miami, along with the Dolphins reported interest in the quarterback, and now a "flexible" contract - Manning to Miami could be a real quest. Owner Stephen Ross is supposed to be in Indianapolis today - could he influence Manning without tampering with him?
