I’m surprised Florio hasn’t piped in with this one yet, since it’s right up his alley, but today is a D-Day of sorts for the Broncos. If they don’t choose to cut Peyton Manning today (they won’t, of course, as he played at an MVP level and was more than they could have ever hoped for, carrying a team with re-tread wide receivers to the AFC’s 1 seed and representing a massive upgrade over Tim Tebow), they’re on the hook for his 2013 and 2014 salaries at $40 million in total guarantees.

Maybe the reason this is such a non-item is that this year there’s no question as to his health and his effectiveness. And if Joe Flacco is worth $20.1 million a year, Peyton F. Manning is sure as hell worth $20.
