Peyton Manning to Washington Redskins: Not Happening, Sources Say
There’s a report out there already indicating that Peyton Manning does not want to play for the Washington Redskins.
Appearing on SportsCenter Thursday, Chris Russell said that according to his sources, Manning has already informed the team that he doesn’t want to don the Burgundy and Gold.
Evan Silva, Senior NFL Editor for Rotoworld, writer for NBC Sports & Profootballtalk.com, also found the tweet by Russell:
Everyone knows the Redskins are one of several teams looking to make a play for the NFL great. The Washington Post reported Wednesday the Redskins were out to make an “aggressive bid” for Manning.
However, NFL Network analyst Marshall Faulk was quoted by NFL.com stating that Manning would never play against his brother.
Faulk’s words make sense. What family in their right mind would want to see that? Even though we did see the Harbaugh brothers go through it this past season.
I’m sure this will put the Redskins back on track in acquiring RG3. That’s where it should be anyway.
