Colts fans may not know Peyton Manning’s future with the team until Friday, not Thursday, as widely reported.
NFL.com reports if the Colts choose not to give Manning the $28 million roster bonus he’s due in his current contract, they don’t have to cut him until Friday, and negotiations on a new deal could continue until then.
The website previously stated that the Colts had until Sunday, but NFL spokesman Greg Aiello clarified that weekends do not count as part of the league year, and the deadline is 4 p.m. Friday. The original report, and this blog post were amended.
