Were Manning to be terminated -- his contract, not him -- the Colts would save $63.6 million over the next four years. The salary cap consequences to a Manning release are a bit more complicated.
It's Super Bowl Sunday and all anyone in Indianapolis can seem to talk about is Manning, Manning, Manning. Peyton, that is.
Eli Manning has a chance to double Peyton's Super bowl victory output. Eli has proved millions of people wrong about him. And never once does he say "take that." He is indeed, the Mann.
While Eli Manning will be one of the starting quarterbacks next week in the Super Bowl in Indianapolis, the biggest decision in the NFL this offseason will involve his older brother and the team that plays in Indianapolis.
As a scientist working on stem cells, I like to use sports analogies when explaining my work to non-scientists. I have found this to be a very effective tool for communicating about this very high tech, jargon-filled area.
What the sports commentator establishment ignores is that Tebow's religious fervor is not important to the fans. Fans could care less whether he proudly flaunts his piety instead of concealing it.
Luck is ready to play right now, and if Manning's neck passes scrutiny, his trade value will never be as high again as this offseason. The following three teams are the best potential suitors.
Barely a few games into the season, there was less attention paid to the best team than given to the the team that could end up as the worst. The reason, of course, is that the discussion revolves around a player thought to be once-in-a-generation: Andrew Luck.
In my mid-fall mailbag, I answer to the slew of Tim Tebow haters and lovers -- with this guy, it's really one or the other -- talk about the Colts' prospects of trading Peyton Manning and further dish on why Duke's Austin Rivers is a star in the making.

There's lots of chatter going around that Peyton Manning is the NFL MVP. He hasn't played a game all season. Hey, the Colts are 0-7 without him. Who is more valuable than he?
Of the elite quarterbacks having neared or reached the end of their contracts over the past year, all but one have re-upped with their team. The last remaining shoe to drop is that of Drew Brees, the signature leader of the New Orleans Saints.
Already dealing with the concussion issue as a subset of labor-management negotiations, the NFL needs a standard to deal with fakeology and how owners, players and coaches mess with game time, not 32 different policies with voluntary standards set by each team.
I have mixed feelings about the latest conference musical chairs, Syracuse and Pitt bolting the Big East for the ACC. Nothing lasts forever, but great memories are hard to erase.
The impact of Peyton Manning's injury on his contract, the Colts and the rest of the NFL are yet to be seen, but this is clearly one of the more dramatic developments in the NFL over recent years.
Michael Vick now becomes the first NFL player to sign two contracts potentially exceeding $100 million. The first one ended badly. Hopefully this deal -- and relationship with the team -- continues to be positive. It appears it has been thus far.
