2012 NFL Draft: Peyton Manning, Jim Irsay To Meet This Week As Andrew Luck Waits

The future of the Indianapolis Colts might be determined this Thursday when quarterback Peyton Manning and owner Jim Irsay meet this week. Manning told the Indianapolis Star that he expects to do so.

"I told him I would pass that along,’’ Peyton said. "We talked about getting together and I think it will be this week. He just said, ‘I look forward to sitting down with you soon.’ I told him the same thing.

"One thing he and I are not going to do is give a set date, where it’s like a game. We’ll handle it the way it should be handled and go from there.’’

How that meeting goes could set the tone for whether or not Peyton Manning is the starting quarterback of the Colts next year or if Standford Cardinal QB Andrew Luck will take over for him.

If you're playing the odds, you might want to know that Vegas oddsmakers at Bovada have the Arizona Cardinals as the early leader in the clubhouse followed by the Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins, New York Jets and then the Colts.
