Irsay Says Peyton Talks Have Begun

(Indianapolis, IN) -- Indianapolis Colts owner JimIrsay says he's already started contract negotiations with injured star quarterback Peyton Manning.  Irsay was inducted into the Central Indiana Business Hall of Fame last night and told reporters beforehand that he and Peyton have talked and want to come up with something that makes sense for both parties.  Manning missed all of last season following surgeryfor a neck fusion in September.  The four-time MVP is due a 28-million-dollar roster bonus March 8th, leading to speculation the Colts will cut him.  Irsay said this week he'd love to have Manning back if they can work out a restructured deal that reflects the uncertainty of his health.
