Peyton Manning to be highest paid player

The Indianapolis Colts will make quarterback Peyton Manning the highest paid quarterback in the NFL. Owner Jim Irsay said that he plans to give Manning a bigger salary, as Manning is a 4-time NFL MVP winner and 1 time Super Bowl Champion, not to mention the face of the franchise. Manning had a disappointing season by his standards, and the Colts lost in the wild card round to the New York Jets. Manning’s expiring contract, signed in 2004, was worth $98 million. Manning played his first season in 1998 for the Colts.
