>>Report: Manning Decision Already Made
(Indianapolis, IN) -- The in-house barbs between Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay and franchise quarterback Peyton Manning could be leading to a divorce. According to the NFL Network, Indianapolis has made its decision on whether or not to keep the 35-year-old QB. The Colts apparently decided weeks ago they will cut ties with the 11-time Pro Bowler rather than pay him a $28-million roster bonus due to him on March 8th. Indianapolis will reportedly make the move prior to the start of the NFL Scouting Combine which begins February 22nd. Irsay has disputed the report to multiple media outlets. The Colts recently hired Chuck Pagano to be their head coach following the firing of Jim Caldwell after a 2-and-14 season.
>>City Says Rams Can't Play In London
(St. Louis, MO) -- The NFL announced the Rams will play a home game in London for the next three seasons but the city of St. Louis will apparently try to stop them. According to the "St. Louis Post-Dispatch," the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission says the Rams' lease at the Edward Jones Dome requires all the team's home games to be played there. The only way the Rams can avoid the requirement is if the stadium is not in usable condition or if the lease with the CVC is terminated. The Rams organization has yet to comment on the issue. St. Louis is scheduled to take on the Super Bowl-bound New England Patriots next season in London.
