Where'd you hear that from. They haven't said anything on NFL Network yet.

Mort is reporting, Shefter just tweeted

@mortreport is reporting Colts and Peyton Manning have reached agreement on five-year, $90 million deal - average that equals Tom Brady's.

Yep, supposedly he turned down a 5 year 100 million $ deal with 25 guaranteed. And Lombardi is saying he'll still have the guaranteed money.

If anyone in the NFL can afford leaving money on the table for his team, it's Peyton. Dude has more endorsements than most other players, in ANY sport.

So, does Payton play 5 more years?

He could if he wanted to. He's for the most part been injury free for his entire career and just doesn't get sacked very often.

$69m over first 3 yrs.

Peyton will make $23 million in 2011, 12 and 13 but his Cap number will drop by over $10 million.

@Chris Mortensen
Cap friendly can be similar to what Manning has traditionally done; allow team to convert roster bonuses to signing bonuses, lower cap total.

Manning very much encoruaging team to re-sign Addai, LT Johnson, extend Mathis...and other FA.

Manning's guaranteed money is only 25 million???

Brady's was 48.5...

Peyton's going to want to play at least 6 more years (to get the consecutive games started record), which is why a 5 year deal makes no sense to me. I'd like to see him play 7 more years to ensure he becomes the first QB in NFL history to throw for 600 TD passes.

Brady's clearly far more selfish, and less team-oriented. (After all the years I got this from your ilk, expect it back tenfold)

From everything reported, the contracts are nearly identical in terms of cap and whatnot.

I'm just wondering why the two guaranteed figures are so different.

Because Brady's more selfish and less team oriented (Realistically, it's probably because the reported figure is wrong, but I'm relishing in this far too much to recognize that at this moment).
