The Peyton Manning deal is pretty stunning. 5 years, 96 million for a 36 year old quarterback coming off his 4th neck procedure.   It’s not a gimmick deal.  It’s basically 19 million a year.  It makes him the highest paid player in the league at a time when he is likely on the decline.

I think he’s an amazing player.  But, to tie up up about 7% of your cap in a 36 year old player is a huge risk.  I think he’s taking a risk too. He’s played his whole career at a home stadium indoors on turf.  Now he’s dealing with elements that could really dictate a passing game.

He’s a smart guy, and I’m sure he made what he thought was the best decision, but I would be surprised if he wins another Super Bowl.
