Manning’s contract doesn’t change, league’s treatment of it does
A source with knowledge of the situation has reiterated to PFT that, despite reports elsewhere to the contrary, the deal did not change. However, the NFL’s interpretation of it did.
Well, I feel like I just wasted an hour writing about what the Broncos were thinking when they may or may not have renegotiated Peyton Manning's contract.
I see no reason to doubt Florio's latest report on the situation, so that obviously eliminates any intent on Denver's part. Nonetheless, they could still end up making use of the extra space, or just carry it over to next offseason.
