Not that it really matters since this is all what could have been, but it's fun to think about.
I don't understand this.
Manning's salary and cap hit is $18M this year and $20M the next 2 years.
Even if we release Walter, we still don't have enough money for salary (not even counting that we will need to release other players as well to accomodate for Peyton's cap hit.)
