RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – Today at noon, the Indianapolis Colts are expected to release quarterback Peyton Manning.

Manning, who did not play this past season after undergoing neck surgery, would be able to play for any other team in the NFL.

Should the Washington Redskins attempt to sign Peyton Manning? Or should the team attempt to rebuild through the NFL Draft?

You can sacrifice multiple number-one draft picks to grab RG3 and hope that he’s the next Cam Newton or Andy Dalton, capable of playing at a high level moments after leaving the womb. Alternately, you can go to your owner — who has a long history of being obsessed with five-star free-agents — and save the draft picks by convincing him to shell out the big bucks for Manning. It’s just money, right? Who cares? And then you can go to Peyton Manning and show off your fantastic pass rush and above-average offensive line bookended by Pro Bowl-caliber tackles Trent Williams and Jammal Brown while convincing him that you’re a quarterback away from the NFC East title. Remind him that you beat the Super Bowl champions twice and just keep adding zeroes till he says yes. Right?”
