ManningWatch: Brian Billick's prediction

INDIANAPOLIS — Outside of Super Bowl, the hot topic in town is what the Indianapolis Colts will do with quarterback Peyton Manning. Former Baltimore Ravens coach Brian Billick expects the Colts to release the four-time NFL Most Valuable Player:

"I think we’re seeing the tell-tale signs of [Manning getting released]. The outside observers are saying, ‘Give him the money and draft Andrew Luck.’ That’s easy to do when it’s not your $28 million. Even the club said it’s not about the money. Are you kidding me? It’s always about the money. I question the intelligence of an organization that tries to parlay this in both instances. It’s tough decisions, but we’re headed clearly in that direction.”
