Report: Colts Will Release Peyton Manning, He’ll Become Free Agent

As the great Bob “Sports” Sturm just tweeted out:

Breaking: Many people are reporting that what everyone said would happen a month ago is happening on the day that everyone knew it would.

And yes, that is true. It’s also easy to say for someone who lives in Dallas and has watched the simultaneous ascendancy of the Colts and Manning from afar. But for someone who lived in Indiana for a good portion of Manning’s career, and has many friends who love them some Horse, I’ll say that no level of inevitability makes this announcement any less strange, awkward, and even unexpected.

Peyton Manning will no longer be the quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts…but he’s not retiring. And he’ll likely play somewhere else.

Weird. Just…weird.

Here is the blurb from ESPN announcing the Colts’ decision:

Peyton Manning’s 14-year career as a member of the Indianapolis Colts is coming to an end.

Sources close to the team told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen that the announcement will come at a news conference in Indianapolis on Wednesday with both Manning and owner Jim Irsay in attendance.

It’s the end of an era. There will be plenty of time to break it all down, what it means, and where the Colts and Manning will go next.

But for now, just let it sink in that Peyton Manning and the Colts are parting ways. I never thought it was possible. But that’s sports.

So long Peyton.

I think I speak for most folks from Indiana, Colts and non-Colts fans alike, when I say that no matter where you go, the Hoosier State will never forget and always appreciate everything you did for football at all levels in The Basketball State.
