ESPN's Adam Schefter reported:
"Manning is completely open to creating a contract in which he would be paid little or no guaranteed money up front and he would have to earn every cent he makes strictly through performance, according to sources."
The Redskins have nothing to lose. They can sign Manning to a reasonable contract and also can draft a QB and have him sit for one or two years while he learns under one of the greatest players in the history of football. What better quarterback to draft than Robert Griffin III.
The Redskins could then challenge for a playoff spot. Most of the Redskins games against teams in the playoffs were close, and they swept the Super Bowl champions??? A quarterback is what the Redskins desperately need and signing Manning if release and healthy gives them a top NFL quarterback who’s ready to play, and drafting Robert Griffin gives the Redskins their quarterback of the future.
