1 million base with a 100k bonus and another 500k in incentives. My guess was about right but thought the base would be at least 2 million.

The texans were asking him to come down to about 1.5 million or so based on report.
It was probably a shock to Manning to see what he was worth on the open market. I wish he'd taken the paycut and stayed here.
