Colts say they reach agreement to re-sign Peyton Manning

Quarterback Peyton Manning has agreed to a five-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts for $90 million, according to NFL Network.

Colts owner and CEO Jim Irsay confirmed the terms of the deal on his Twitter account.

The deal allows the four-time MVP to report to training camp at Anderson University in central Indiana, the club said on its website.

However, due to surgery he had in May, Manning will start the year on the training camp's "Physically Unable to Perform" list, the Colts said. Manning currently is undergoing daily rehabilitation sessions with the Colt’s medical staff.

“Signing Peyton was a top priority for this organization and we are thrilled that the deal is complete,” Irsay said. “We feel that it is a salary cap friendly deal and it allows us more flexibility.”

Manning led the Colts to a Super Bowl victory in 2006 over the Chicago Bears. In 13 seasons, he has earned 11 Pro Bowl selections and started all 208 career games, the most games to start a career at any position in NFL history, according to the Colts' website. He has completed 4,682 of 7,210 passes for 54,828 yards and 399 touchdowns. On his next touchdown pass, Manning will join Brett Favre and Dan Marino as the only players with 400 or more touchdown passes.

    @Greg: No, no one is saying that. You will admit that the salary difference is outrages. Look at the parralel: GM plant worker $80K per year. GM CEO $3 million per year. Get it? Who's your daddy baby?

    Obviously when people disagree with Greg, so he's going to make fun of them.

    • Huh?

      @Cesar: The head of the UAW makes about $150k per year.. He's overpaid I guess by your accounts. A GM designer makes about $75k per year and a guy doing spot welds on the assembly line is about $40k. GM also pays it's employee's college costs so they can go to school and grow within the company or leave to bigger and brighter employment. How is that a bad company? Idiot.. I know you're just trying to get a rise out of people but your spreading nonsense that some people might start to agree with. Why don't you just go to school to be a CEO? I bet you'd take less than $1million a year.. *sarcasm*

    Peyton brings in the fanbucks. Too bad, given what physical price the men in the trenchs endure for a fraction of his pay. If not for them, he'd have Joe Namath knees.
