Am being told Peyton will make $18 million in 2012. There is an injury waiver based on physical in 2013. More to come.
Manning contract: 2012: 18M 2013-2014: 40M w/waiver on neck 2015: 19M 2016: 19M trying to find out more on waiver
Peyton will make $18M in 2012 without injury protection to Broncos. Passing March 2013 physical will activate $40M gtee w/a waiver.
Peyton passing his March 2013 physical activates guaranteed salaries of $20M in both 2013 and 2014, although with a waiver on his neck.
Initial reaction to Peyton deal: could be 1 yr, $18M deal. He could have leveraged more guarantee, less risk and did not. Impressive.
Peyton passing his March 2013 physical activates 40M guarantee, paid as 20M salary in 2013 and 2014. Can be reduced if injury to neck.
