Sunday January 8th, 2012

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning is due a $28 million option bonus on March 8, but the Colts and Manning may both be willing to push back that deadline, according to NBC Sports.

According to NBC Sports, the Colts would like to have the most amount of medical information about Manning before paying the bonus. Manning sat out all of the 2011 season with a neck injury; the Colts finished 2-14 and fired both Bill and Chris Polian after the season.
