Peyton Manning Release Signals End Of An Era

Alfie discusses the Jaguars and Manning

The Indianapolis Colts are set to release long time quarterback Peyton Manning on Wednesday according to a report by Chris Mortensen of ESPN. The release should not surprise a single person who follows the NFL in the slightest regard, as there was a massive roster bonus looming on March 8 that the Colts had no intention of paying. Love him or hate him, it's the end of an era in the AFC South.

Manning and the Colts have dominated the AFC South division since it's inception, but now the division will lose arguably one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of the NFL. It's still uncertain if Peyton Manning will play in the NFL again, but it is certain he will try and there will be multiple suitors for his services. The Jacksonville Jaguars obviously will not be in the running for Manning's services. It's just not a fit for what this team is trying to accomplish right now.

Some teams who could be in the services for Manning however include the likes of the Arizona Cardinals, the Kansas City Chiefs, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Jets, and the San Francisco 49ers. Personally, I think Manning winds up in the NFC West with the Cardinals, with some of his old receivers in tow.
