Report: Colts Decided To Part With Peyton Manning 'Weeks Ago'

Colts owner Jim Irsay and Peyton Manning attempted to clear the air Friday about the rumored rift between them, releasing a statement saying the two were on the same page. But according to a report from NFL Network's Jason La Canfora, that statement hasn't changed a thing, and Manning and the Colts are done.

"According to sources who were involved in the Colts’ GM search, the organization was planning to move on from Manning weeks ago, well before this public squabble between the quarterback and his owner," La Canfora said. "So Friday’s joint statement won’t be changing a thing."

La Canfora says the Colts will "almost certainly" look to move Manning before this year's NFL Scouting Combine, which is slated to get underway on Feb. 22 in Indianapolis.

The Colts are expected to take Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with the No. 1 overall pick in this spring's draft.
