Year 1: $36 million ($30 million plus $6 million)

Year 4: $54 million
Year 5: $60 million

Where are people getting the idea that this is low ball?
It's low ball if the Broncos expect him to play more then two years. If he plays 4 more years, hypothetically, it's much below the market value for a top 5 QB.

Where are people getting the idea that this is low ball? He's only going to see year 3 in this contract anyway. That's $16 million a year. Not bad at all.
4 years $90m was quoted earlier in the week Taco that's why.

$22.5m a year is a hell of a lot higher than $12m per year. Yes I now realise it's a starting ballpark figure, calm remains.

Good explanation. I think a lot of people (myself included) weren't considering how the $30 guaranteed worked in terms of how much he makes in the first few years. Makes a lot of sense that he'd have less to gain by playing in the last couple years of the contract.

Theres been no word at all from any niners homers and they are usually on top of things. That is way under the radar of that happened.

Broncos are getting played here just to raise Manning's price tag.

Heyneck looks like there's legs to your niner nightmare. Gary and Krueger would be all over this right now. They are talking about zito.

The 49ers are 18/1 on betfair, those are huge odds.

Really? We're looking at 2 more days, give or take, of this bull****? F this. We have holes to fill and an offseason to go through.

It made too much sense. But I am with you on this one... I don't get how they managed to keep this on the low for 3 days. It's the Asomugah scenario all over again. The Eagles come in and snatched the CB while the Jets and Cowboys battled it out.

If he doesn't go to the 49ers it is all about the money. 49ers are in a different league both literally and figuratively.

Manning would be smarter to go to San Fran I guess. Better defense, good running game, good offensive line. Whatever I just want this to end.

Quoted by who? Who cares what someone spitballed earlier this week? These are real numbers now that it's reported BOTH teams are working from.

Where are you calculating $12 million a year? Your math doesn't add up.

$60 million minus a $30 million signing bonus is $30 million. Divide that by 5 and you get $6 million. Peyton only figures to play for 3 of those years.


Year 1: $36 million ($30 million plus $6 million)
Year 2: $42 million
Year 3: $48 million

$48 million divided by 3 is $16 million. This is a great starting negotiation point if you're trying to keep the number below $20 million a year. I expect it will finish more in this territory:

$70 million with a $30 million signing bonus

Year 1: $38 million
Year 2: $46 million
Year 3: $54 million

That would amount to $18 million a year. NOBODY is looking at year 4 & 5 in this deal.

Klis on 102.3 just now says he thinks Manning is not using the Broncos as leverage. His guess is that the Titans offer is higher, and the workout today is for Peyton to convince the Broncos Peyton is worth the extra $$.

Unless the Broncos can somehow get him on that plane back to Denver we are done.
