  • Colts cut Manning after 14 years

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Colts owner Jim Irsay says the team is releasing quarterback Peyton Manning after a 14-year run that included one Super Bowl title and four MVP awards.
    Irsay and Manning are appearing together Wednesday at a news conference at the Colts’ team complex to announce the move.
