INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis Colts general manager Ryan Grigson says the team isn’t ready to make a decision on Peyton Manning or Andrew Luck just yet.
Grigson says Thursday he has not seen Manning throw and does not have information to determine whether to release him before he is paid a $28 million bonus by a Mach 8 deadline. Grigson made his remarks Thursday at the NFL scouting combine.
Manning’s future was a hot topic on the first full day of the combine. Coaches and general managers from other teams were also asked about their interest in the 14-year NFL veteran, though few provided thoughts because it would violate the league’s tampering rules.
Grigson also says Indianapolis hasn’t decided whether to select Luck, the Stanford quarterback, with the top pick in April’s draft.
