Lol at you guys actually thinking Manning might be a 49er.
He really could be. The Colts will almost certainly cut him. He has a $28 million signing bonus due. He has an injured neck. And they have Andrew Luck.
He is going to want 20 million for whatever team, we have 40 in cap room, and Goldson, Rodgers, Morgan, Ginn, Brooks to re-sign and our ST guys like Constanzo and Grant, plus draft picks. I don't think we can afford to keep our team together, upgrade the WRs, etc if we were to sign him. And then he could be paralyzed after one bad hit. Not worth the risk IMO.
Exactly how I feel. I think this team has a great future, and would hate to see it gutted to secure a great player who may well be completely finished.
I'd take Peyton in a heartbeat. If he is let go, I doubt he wants money in the 20M range. I think he's looking to win as many SB's as possible this late in his career and SF is the best option with our defense, run game and VD.
