The talk of the off season about the fate of the Peyton’s has kept the presses busy this year. Whether it be Peyton Hillis from the Cleveland Browns or Peyton Manning from the Indianapolis Colts there have been rumors galore. In Manning’s case the rumors have him going to almost every team in the NFL. In the case of Hillis there is lots of concern about him re-signing with the Cleveland Browns.
The only certainty this far into the off season is if your name is Peyton and you play in the National football league there is lots of concern as too where you’re going to be playing this season. For the Browns fans re–signing Hillis is a top priority. In the case of Manning I’m sure the fans in Indy want him to return to the Colts. Jim Irsay has certainly put this on his back burner. There were suppose to be talks following the super bowl, how Irsay has put this off this far is anyone’s guess.
For the Cleveland Browns, they have made the case they want to re-sign Hillis. The sticking point could very well be Hillis’s agent thinking Hillis is worth much more than the Browns are willing to pay. There were rumors floating this past weekend saying the Browns and Hillis already had a verbal contract agreement. We still haven’t had any confirmation of those yet.
One thing that is certain is the fact Peyton Hillis will be playing football somewhere. As far as Manning goes, who knows? Peyton Manning may be better off going into retirement. Hey there are only two guys in the Monday Night Football Booth, maybe they kept a spot open for the 4 time NFL MVP.
