first_imgWe’re about a month into the “Peyton Manning to (fill inthe blank)” rumors, and since we’re over a month away fromManning’s fate with the Colts becoming a known quantity,they’re not going away any time soon.Manning’s future was a hot topic in Peter King’s MondayMorning QB column on SI.com.Writes King:Manning might be fine and ready to playfootball in 2012, and maybe even a year or two beyondthat. Or he might wake up on March 1 and not feel fitenough, and get his release from the Colts, and then spendmore time rehabbing, trying to get fit enough and strongenough in the neck and arm to play this year. Or he mightsay, with new twins in the house, it’s all not worth therisk.King also referenced longtime NFL executive Gil Brandt,who said, “my gut feeling is that we’ve probably seen thelast of Peyton.” Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocationcenter_img Wow.Another layer of speculation was heaped on Sunday nightduring NBC’s coverage of the Pro Bowl, when Manning’sformer head coach Tony Dungy dropped his thoughts on thefuture of #18.“I do not think he’s going to play for another team,”Dungy said. “If he’s healthy enough, he’ll play for theColts. If he’s not healthy enough, he’ll retire.”Pretty strong words from a man who spent seven seasonswith Manning as his quarterback.Dungy’s statement came just hours after Colts owner JimIrsay took to Twitter to refute an NFL Network claim thatthe decision to waive Manning was made weeks ago.
