Manning to Meet With Doctors; Bailey Will Be Asked To Take Pay Cut

Peyton Manning Will SOon Meet With Doctors on his neck check up

Well, it is almost that time everyone has been waiting for when talking about Peyton Manning’s 2014 offseason. He is scheduled to visit with doctors next week to evaluate his neck. It has been two years since Manning was recovering from his fourth neck surgery, when many thought that his NFL career may be over.

The 37-year-old Manning has said time and time again, that if his neck checks out, he intends on playing in 2014, whether he won Super Bowl XLVIII or not. However, Manning also said, if the doctors do not like what they see with Manning’s neck, he would happily ride off into the sunset with the best passing season anyone has ever seen in NFL history.

General Manager, John Elway, expects Manning to be just fine and to be ready for the 2014 season. Following 2012, Manning had a similar exam with medical doctors and all was fine. Manning was one of the least sacked quarterbacks in the league in 2013, with hardly anyone being able to get to the future Hall of Famer. All is expected to check up well for Manning.

On the other side of the football, things may not be as good. Cornerback Champ Bailey will be asked to take a pay cut according to a report. According to Bailey’s contract, the All-Pro cornerback has a base-salary of $9 million, plus an extra $1 million roster bonus the team must pay on March 15.

“We’re still in the process of talking about that,” Elway said. “I’m going to sit down with Champ and find out what he wants to do and go from there.”

Bailey is 35-years-old and played in just five regular season games in 2013 — also the first season in which Bailey did not record an interception. Bailey is a 12-time Pro Bowler and the Broncos do want him to stay and retire as a Bronco.
