Another reason to like Peyton Manning

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slu...v=ap&type=lgns

Manning agrees to restructure contract
By MICHAEL MAROT, AP Sports Writer
February 21, 2007

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Peyton Manning has agreed to restructure his contract with the Indianapolis Colts to save the team nearly $8 million in salary cap space.

The Super Bowl MVP was to receive a $10 million roster bonus during the offseason but by converting the money into a regular signing bonus, the Colts can prorate that amount over the remaining four years of his deal. That saves Indianapolis space under the cap, which is $109 million.

ADVERTISEMENT
The restructuring was disclosed to The Associated Press on Wednesday by a person familiar with the negotiations who spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal had not yet been signed.

Colts spokesman Craig Kelley said the team had no comment.

Manning signed a $98 million contract in March 2004, the season after he shared the league's MVP award with Steve McNair.

He followed that with a record-setting 2004 season in which he threw 49 touchdown passes and earned his second straight league MVP award.

In 2005, Manning guided the Colts to a 13-0 record and the AFC's No. 1 seed before losing in the divisional round of the playoffs to eventual Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh.

But this season, Manning showed more patience in throwing short and relying on his ground game, using that combination to bring the Colts their first Super Bowl title since moving to Indianapolis in 1984.

Manning has led the Colts to seven playoff appearances in nine seasons, including five straight under coach Tony Dungy, and after breaking John Unitas' franchise record for completions last season is closing in on Unitas' other career records for passing attempts, yardage and touchdowns.

Only if he agrees that I can hawk the football on ebay for a shitload of money once he dies.

I still don't understand how so many people can hate Manning. He is a class act and one of the best QB's to play the game.

Makes sense, but that isn't really his fault, but the media's trying to make a buck.

Ill admit im not a big peyton fan, but that is a very respectable thing to do for your team. He has earned some points in my book.

I still think that the best thing about Peyton Manning is that he is not named Eli.

This is about the only way that team is going to be able to re-sign key guys who are going to be becoming FA's in the next few years. Classy thing to do in putting the team ahead of your wallet and proves he'll do whatever it takes to get back to another Super-Bowl.
