I realize this is a little off topic and more suitable for TMZ but what else do we have to talk about? You might recall just yesterday it was announced a doctor had cleared Peyton Manning to play football. Today we find out the ever clever Jim Irsay saying 'Not so Fast!":
"Peyton has not passed our physical nor has he been cleared to play for The Indianapolis Colts. Team statement coming on Friday," Irsay posted on his Twitter feed early Friday morning.
He's not cleared to play for the Colts nor has he asked Mr. Irsay, in a very nice manner, if he can play!...lol Stay tuned for Manning's response via Facebook.
Seriously, I'm sticking with my Manning to the Redskins prediction. I think Synder would love to nab Manning and try to stick it to Irsay (and the rest of us for that matter).
As an update, I'm sticking with the Flynn to the Dolphins deal as well:
Pack can't afford to franchise Flynn
For all those who think the Packers can put a franchise tag on QB Matt Flynn and then trade him, consider that the Packers would have to fit in the $14 million one-year tender by releasing players. They also would need to have a deal in place with Finley so that he could not walk away an unrestricted free agent. So, to do the Flynn maneuver, they'd have to sign Finley (and the others) AND find a way to clear $10 million to $14 million off their cap. It's not going to happen.
From Green Bay to Miami..I'm sure Flynn's family will be happy!
