Titans offer Peyton Manning contract for life?

Titans owner offers Peyton a contract “for life”

Posted by Mike Florio on March 15, 2012, 10:17 AM EDT
To the extent that Peyton Manning is looking to parlay a contract for his services as a player into a contract for his services as an executive, it’s working.

Titans owner Bud Adams told KHOU radio in Houston on Wednesday that he has offered Peyton a contract “for life.”

Adams also said he “feels great” about the team’s chances of landing Manning.

As previously mentioned, the idea of welcoming Peyton into the front office upon retirement could make for more than a little awkwardness, given that the jobs and the duties Peyton may be eyeballing already are spoken for. (Including giving the opposition a double-barreled middle finger during games.)

Then there’s the question of how a contract that contains financial promises beyond the expiration of the playing career impacts the salary cap. A post-playing-career maneuver once made by Broncos owner Pat Bowlen regarding quarterback John Elway contributed to a finding that the team had violated the salary-cap rules.

And so, before any contract “for life” becomes effective, the league office will have to approve it. In the end, it’s possible that the playing part of the lifetime contract will be addressed in writing, and that the balance of the business will be accomplished via a series of winks and nods.

Bud Adams is old and senile, and someone on his board needs to tackle him.

Peyton’s Tennessee visit includes Titans’ doctor

Posted by Mike Florio on March 14, 2012, 11:43 PM EDT

Quarterback Peyton Manning spent enough time with the Titans on Wednesday to get a paycheck. According to ESPN.com, Manning put in eight hours visiting with team officials.

Part of the time reportedly was spent with the team’s doctor, Burton Elrod. (What, Dr. Cletus Moonbucket was too busy?) Important questions remain regarding the status of Peyton’s neck, and the strength of his passing arm.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that none of the four teams with which Manning has met (Broncos, Cardinals, Dolphins, Titans) have been eliminated. Mort also reports, apparently passing along the message that the Manning camp wants communicated to the rest of the league, that Peyton hasn’t closed the door on meeting with other teams.

In other words, “No one has offered me the kind of money I want.”

At some point, Peyton needs to start handing out roses, or bags of poo. The delay is making him look indecisive, and indecision is going to make him look like Brett Favre.

Actually, when it came to picking a team, Brett was never indecisive. Sure, he hemmed and hawed about playing for the Jets or Buccaneers in 2008, but only because he wanted to play for the Vikings, Bears, or Lions.

Peyton could be turning into the mirror image of Favre. Brett couldn’t decide when he wanted to stop playing; Manning is coming off as a guy who can’t decide where he wants to keep playing.

Then again, if anyone offered him enough money, he’d make up his mind pretty quickly.

Future Elway-type role could be complicating Manning talks

Posted by Mike Florio on March 15, 2012, 9:28 AM EDT

At a time when more and more league insiders are wondering whether the Peyton chase is all about chasing paper, there’s a new dynamic to consider.

Peyton may have his eye on a retirement gig in an NFL front office.

On Wednesday, Mike Lombardi of NFL Network pointed out that, if that’s what Peyton wants, the Titans have an edge over the Broncos, because the Broncos already have a former quarterback running the football operation.

If the chatter that Peyton actually wants a commitment that he’ll go from to Clark Kent once he’s done playing is true, it complicates matters, even for the Titans. While Tennessee doesn’t have a Hall of Fame quarterback at the top of the front office, the organizational chart already is pretty full. Earlier this year, Mike Reinfeldt became team president, and Ruston Webster filled in as G.M.

And so, at a minimum, it becomes awkward for any team to offer future front-office titles and responsibilities to a potential player, especially since the player will be negotiating with people who currently hold those titles and/or responsibilities.

Moreover, it doesn’t make much sense to use a franchise’s interest in a player as leverage to generate interest in him as an executive. If Peyton has the chops to make football decisions, there will be a market for his services once he retires. Intertwining what a team can do for him later with what a team can do for him now could result in a decision that balances present and future.

Wouldn’t it be better to simply focus on the present?

Sign him.

He could be 52 and probably still better with the ball than Casshole.

Found this part funny considering all these people who "know" Manning are coming out of the woodwork talking about how he doesn't like this dog and pony show....yeah right, sounds like he is really hating life. He's reliving his college recruiting days on a bunch of disillusioned NFL teams dime.

No wonder Clark was out early. My stance would be, let's see how it goes, Peyton. Frankly, if you want a job after your playing days are over then get your resume ready and go find one. That job has nothing to do with this job.

The last article I posted really says it, if he wants to be a front office guy, he can when he retires. he doesnt need some contract giving him a job. Im sure most franchises would offer him a gig when he retires. Plus it doesnt make sense for the NFL to allow this. It seems to against the "cap". Creates unfair advantage?

It didn't stop Pat Bowlen & Elway. Elway was the lowest paid starting QB during the two years the cheating donks won the Superbowl. One helluva deferred compensation plan.
