no way... with their salary cap and having to sign manning?

Not at all. They are talking about cutting Edgerin James.

Yes it would be, because free agency hasnt' started yet.

It's not tampering because the Skins have given him permission to talk to other teams.

That would mean they had to give us two first rounders for him cause he is franchised. Right?

We could settle for less.

No way this would happen. They had to restructure 6 starting players just last week so they could get under cap to think about resigning Manning. They are really worried about having enough money to resign him.

If we can talk contract numbers with Brunell, eventhough he is still under contract with the Jags, then why can't Reale discuss numbers with the Colts?

youre right, he is allowed to discuss money now. Otherwise, whats the point? And no team would be talking to Champ at all, they would be talking to the skins about trade terms. But whats the point of that if you cant talk money to champ?

There is no way the Colts would even think of going after Champ for the above reasons, everyone else mentioned

They could definitely use a Pro Bowl corner, but they're having enough trouble with Manning as it is.

Well . . . Indy NEEDS to free up cap space. How about Edgerrin James and Dwight Freeney for Champ? Or one or the other and a draft pick or two.

There is no way in hell they would make that deal. They need cap room which means they won't be looking to add a 55 million dollar contract for 1 player to their roster. Freeney isn't making all that much since he's still on his rookie contract.
