Peyton Manning the Soon To Be HIghest Paid Player in the NFL

Some info on the Peyton Manning Contract Renegotiation's......from ESPN

Team owner Jim Irsay reiterated late last week that he still intends to make Manning, the only four-time MVP in league history, the NFL's highest-paid player.

But first, the two sides must agree on who holds the distinction now.

Manning's expiring deal, signed in 2004 for $98 million, was one of the largest ever at the time. Four quarterbacks -- Michael Vick, Carson Palmer, Ben Roethlisberger and Donovan McNabb -- all agreed to deals totaling at least $100 million, though each of those contracts was longer than Manning's. Vick's record-setting $130-million contract also was later voided.

Or it could be annual average salary. Manning's younger brother, Eli, signed a six-year deal with the Giants worth $97.5 million last year, giving him $16.25 million per year. New England's Brady topped that in September, agreeing to a four-year contract worth $72 million, or $18 million per year.

Or perhaps it could be based on guaranteed money. Rams quarterback Sam Bradford got a record $50 million guaranteed in his rookie contract last summer. Even Brady, a three-time Super Bowl winner, couldn't top that. He got $48.5 million.

Irsay has generally cited Brady's deal as the standard, and he's made it clear he wants Manning to stay with the Colts for the rest of his career.

Both sides say negotiations have not yet begun.

Jets v Colts/ Manning

In case you're wondering, the Jets did a lot of blitzing against Manning in last season's AFC Championship Game. In fact, they sent more than four rushers on 26 dropbacks. Unofficially, here's a breakdown of the Jets' pass rushes in that game, and how Manning fared:

3-man rush (1) -- 1-for-1, 22 yards
4-man rush (14) -- 8-for-14, 82 yards, 1 TD
5-man rush (13) -- 9-for-12, 179 yards, 1 TD, 1 sack
6-man rush (9) -- 6-for-9, 80 yards, 1 TD
7-man rush (4) -- 1-for-3, 10 yards, 1 sack

The Jets' most prolific pass rushers in that game:

Calvin Pace -- 38 rushes (1 QB hit)
Bryan Thomas -- 34
Shaun Ellis -- 26
Marques Douglas -- 19
David Harris -- 18 (2 sacks)
James Ihedigbo -- 18 (2 QB hits)
