Could NFL Quarterback Peyton Manning Be Heading To Houston?
The Indianapolis Colts QB was sidelined last season after shoulder surgery, If the Colts do not renew his contract Peyton Manning could possibly be moving to Houston.
In the off-season before last season Peyton Manning underwent shoulder surgery. He has had shoulder problems in the past and this surgery sidelined him for the entire 2011 season.
Jim Irsay, the owner of the Indianapolis Colts has a tough decision to make. Does he keep the quarterback who led the Indianapolis to their first Super Bowl victory? Or does he let go the Hall of Fame quarterback who any team would have loved to have in his prime?
Either way as of Monday Manning has a plan should he be let go by Irsay and the Colts organization. Manning said he would be interested in joining the Houston Texans. Manning made it very clear he would love to play for a team who has the potential to compete for the Super Bowl next year and the Texans definitely have what it takes. Last season the Houston Texans made it to the second round of the playoffs, one game away from the AFC Championship game.
The big plus side also is the the Colts are in the Texans division, the two teams play each other two times a year. Manning says he know the division so well, why not stay somewhere that you feel comfortable playing the teams in your division and have a chance at beating your previous team. Manning told reporters the relationship between him and Colts owner Jim Irsay is "strictly business now."
