Report: Peyton Manning, Broncos working on restructured deal
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2/25/15) More evidence points to Peyton Manning playing in 2015.
According to The Denver Post, the Broncos and Manning are working together on a restructured contract. Manning is slated to make $19 million per season in 2015 and 2016. The Broncos could be working on this deal to create some space to bring back receiver Demaryius Thomas and/or tight end Julius Thomas, both of which will be free agents.
The restructuring of the deal is perhaps why Manning has yet to make an announcement that he's returning for the 2015 season.
Manning threw for 4,727 yards, 39 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in 2014.
Elway: Peyton Manning hasn't given answer on Broncos return
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(2/19/15) Speaking to the media at the combine on Thursday, Broncos general manager John Elway said Peyton Manning's return next season wasn't a certainty.
Manning met with Elway a week ago, and reportedly told him he was mentally and physically ready to return.
However, Elway said that Manning didn't give the team a definitive answer on whether he'd return.
Elway made it clear that the team wants Manning to return and believes he will. He also said that the team wasn't holding Manning to a timetable. "Peyton has all the time he needs," Elway said.
Broncos' Kubiak: No doubt I want Peyton Manning to be our QB
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/18/15) Broncos coach Gary Kubiak told reporters at the NFL combine in Indianapolis on Wednesday that there haven't been any assurances quarterback Peyton Manning will play in 2015. However, Kubiak does appear upbeat about Manning's chances of coming back.
"No doubt I want him to be (our quarteback)," Kubiak said, per The Denver Post. "I feel good about where we are right now. It's just time."
Kubiak, who said he has visited with Manning "quite often" in recent weeks, added he is working on developing an offense that plays to Manning's strengths.
“Can he roll out? I think he can do anything he wants to do,” Kubiak said, per ProFootballTalk.com. “You do what your players do best. I’ve been asked over the course of the last month, since I’ve been in Denver, about the bootleg. I had Joe [Flacco] in Baltimore last year and I think we booted maybe 25 times in the season. You do what your players do best. We’re going to run the Denver Broncos Offense, and that’s a big challenge to me right now, meshing things together and getting ready to go do the things that Peyton does so well and has for many, many years."
Broncos' Kubiak expecting Peyton Manning to return next season
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/17/15) New Broncos coach Gary Kubiak is planning on having quarterback Peyton Manning under center in 2015, reports the Denver Post.
"No, I'm expecting him to come back," Kubiak said. "We want to play with him. This organization has won a lot of games with him and we want to get back and do it again. Expecting him to come back."
Although no formal decision has been made or announced, Kubiak is confident Manning is coming back.
"I don't think there's any hold up at all," Kubiak said. "He and John are working through the process. That's been the plan all along, the way I understand it."
Manning will take a physical by March 5 to determine if he's healthy enough to play and is under contract for $19 million in 2015.
Report: Peyton Manning tells Broncos he's ready to return
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(2/13/15) Peyton Manning met with Broncos general manager John Elway and CEO Joe Ellis on Thursday. According to ESPN's Chris Mortenson, Manning informed the team that he is physically and mentally prepared to play another season in 2015.
While in New Orleans at the start of the offseason, Manning got an evaluation from trainer Mackie Shilstone, who gave him a green light. Manning's quad injury that bothered him at the end of the season has completely healed.
Manning still needs to pass a physical administered between Feb. 23 and March 5, and the team will likely look into renegotiating his contract to help reduce the salary cap impact.
|Peyton Manning had the best season for any quarterback in 2013 when he passed for 5,477 yards and 55 touchdowns. Can he do it again? Manning loses two key parts with Eric Decker signing as a free agent with the Jets and Knowshon Moreno going to the Dolphins. Those two players accounted for more than 1,800 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns, and they will be replaced by free agent signee Emmanuel Sanders, rookie Cody Latimer and second-year running back Montee Ball. Manning still has elite weapons in Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas and Wes Welker, and we're confident Sanders and Ball will post big stats this year, along with some help from Latimer. Still, Manning will likely regress from last season -- he's a year older at 38 and the Broncos want to run more -- but that shouldn't knock him off the perch as the No. 1 Fantasy quarterback. He should be drafted ahead of Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees, and hopefully we'll see another year of 5,000-plus passing yards and 50-plus touchdowns.
