Peyton Manning $96 Million Five-year Contract With Denver Broncos

March 28, 2012 by staff 

Peyton Manning $96 Million Five-year Contract With Denver Broncos, Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos have agreed to terms on a five-year contract, a league source told NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi on Tuesday.

Manning’s contract is worth $96 million, a league source told NFL Network’s Albert Breer, but NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reports Manning’s contract essentially boils down to a series of one-year deals.

The deal includes $18 million guaranteed once it is signed, league sources told La Canfora, and there remains ongoing discussion about injury language in the contract, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.

If Manning passes a physical in March 2013 he’ll be guaranteed $40 million over the next two seasons. There is currently an injury waiver in place, however, that should Manning injure his neck in 2013, the Broncos can void the contract at that point and 2014 would not be guaranteed, sources told La Canfora. Those sources also said there is ongoing dialogue about that injury waiver, and whether it should apply to both years, and until Manning signs the deal that is not locked in.

Much of the language and final details in the contract can remain on the table until the deal actually is signed, according to La Canfora. None of this is big enough to preclude a deal, however, the final language on the injury waiver still could change somewhat between now and the actual signing.

Cash strapped in recent years, the Broncos put nothing up front, according to Lombardi. Manning’s $18 million will be paid in the form of guaranteed base salary — which would come in the former of 17 game checks, each worth a sliver of $1 million each.
