Jason La Canfora Reports the Colts will release Peyton Manning

From NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora:

OK, so we’ll buy that Irsay and Manning are all good. But what the statement didn’t say was that Manning will remain with the Colts. While it remains to be seen if he ever will play again, any misperceptions that the four-time NFL MVP will do so with the Colts appear to be long gone.

Just how far?

“According to sources who were involved in the Colts’ GM search, the organization was planning to move on from Manning weeks ago, well before this public squabble between the quarterback and his owner,” NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora said Friday on “NFL Total Access.”

“So Friday’s joint statement won’t be changing a thing.”

La Canfora reported the Colts will make a move on Manning “almost certainly” before the start of the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine.

NOTE: The Scouting Combine starts February 23rd in Indianapolis.  La Canfora says the departure will come before then.
