Default Bill Polian: Colts likely to reach deal with Peyton Manning

Quote:
Bill Polian is ready to make a deal with Peyton Manning (FSY).

Getting it done in this labor market could still make it tricky.

The Indianapolis Colts president told reporters Monday he was confident Indianapolis would re-sign the four-time MVP before his current contract expires after the 2010 season.

"There's probably some likelihood that that will happen," Polian said during Jim Kelly's charity golf tournament in Batavia, N.Y. "But there's a lot of work that we can do between then and now to lay groundwork and cover areas that we need to cover and talk about various different structures, and we'll do that."

Money is not expected to be the major impediment.

Colts owner Jim Irsay has already said he'll make Manning the league's highest-paid player and called the negotiations one of the team's biggest offseason priorities.

The problem: With an uncapped 2010 season and no collective bargaining agreement to guide teams in 2011 and beyond, Polian must figure out how to structure the deal so it doesn't leave the Colts at a disadvantage and do it almost blindly.

"Everybody's in the same boat. Players are in the same boat, clubs are in the same boat," Polian said. "None of us know what's involved and what the system will be like going forward. When that's resolved, those other situations will resolve themselves."

Polian, who helped create the league's salary cap in the 1990s, has been a master at crunching numbers. The list of Indy players with contract values of $30 million or more include Manning, Dwight Freeney (FSY), Reggie Wayne (FSY), Bob Sanders (FSY), Robert Mathis (FSY) and Kelvin Hayden (FSY). Manning, of course, has the richest contract $98 million.

I wouldn't be too upset if it didn't.

But, but...Vince Young plays there and all he does is win. Why in the world would they want Manning?
