Colts have already made a decision on Peyton Craig Thomas

The NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora is reporting that the Indianapolis Colts have made a decision on Peyton Manning’s future.

“According to sources who were involved in the Colts’ GM search, the organization was planning to move on from Peyton Manning weeks ago, well before this public squabble between the quarterback and his owner,” said La Canfora on NFL Network. “So Friday’s joint statement won’t be changing a thing.”

According to La Canfora, the Colts could release Manning before the Scouting Combine in late February.
