Yeah...the video did show him throwing the ball well. But only short passes. The most important thing with him is: can he take a hit? And the witnesses that have seen him are his entourage and the Colts free agents.
We will find out soon enough how recovered he really is.
Manning’s camp knew that he’d most likely be cut this week. Thus, like a free agent who somehow has a plane ticket in his hand the moment the market opens, why hasn’t Manning already lined up his first visit?
The fact that no visits have been reported or announced is prompting speculation among some league insiders that, notwithstanding last week’s Zapruder film, he doesn’t yet have the ability to throw the way he needs to throw in order to get teams to throw money at him.
If this process doesn’t move quickly, that speculation could have some merit.
