Manning set for Colts talks

Doubts remain as to whether the legendary quarterback Peyton Manning will still be with Indianapolis Colts next season; something sure to affect how punters will spend their money on NFL bets.
Team owner Jim Irsay plans to meet with Manning in the next seven days and insists he wants the 35-year-old to stay, but only if his contract is restructured.
Isray wants Manning to accept an incentive-laden deal that will reward him if he is able to make a complete recovery from the spinal fusion procedure he endured five months ago.
"We can make it work if he wants to be here,'' Irsay said. "We'd be excited to have him back and finish his career with us.
"I want him to be able to make the choice. We would love to have him back here if he can get healthy and we can look at doing a contract that reflects the uncertainty of the healing process with the regeneration of the nerve.''
Manning has been with the Colts since they selected him with the first overall pick in the 1998 draft. He led them into the playoffs 11 times in 13 years and to the Super Bowl twice, including a 29-17 win over the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI - something which marks him out as a favourite for punters looking to bet on NFL.
He is also the NFL's only four-time MVP but his future has been uncertain ever since he had the surgery in September, his third neck procedure in 19 months, which forced him to miss the 2011 season.
Manning signed a five-year $90million contract in July. He received $26million in the contract's first year even though he never stepped on to the field and has earned more than $170million in his 14 seasons with the Colts.
