SPEAK OUT: Should the Redskins Acquire Peyton Manning?
Who would you rather see in the burgundy and gold, Manning or RG3?
After 14-seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, Peyton Manning was released and is a free agent.
The Washington Redskins are planning to make an aggressive effort in bringing Manning to the DMV, according to the Washington Post.
The Post also reported that it’s unclear if the Redskins will try to make a push to draft Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III in April.
Colts owner Jim Irsay did not want to pay Manning a $28 million bonus that was about to come due because he does not believe the player can fully come back from his third neck procedure in 19 months, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The Redskins along with Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, Tennessee Titans, and the New York Jets all have been rumored as possible destinations for Manning, according to Cincinnatti.com.
Manning, a four-time NFL Most Valuable Player award winner has questions over his surgically repaired neck and throwing strength, according to Bloomberg. Manning had at least three operations on his neck over the last two years, according to Bloomberg.
