Manning, Brees Could Squeeze Colts, Saints With Monstrous Contract
Written by 

The agency that represents Drew Brees and Peyton Manning is pushing for both players to be exempt from the application of the franchise tag.

Manning is subject to the franchise tag now and Brees, whose contract expires after this season, make the possibility quite interesting. Brees and Manning could seek the same benefit that plaintiffs in the Reggie White class suit action received -- a career exemption from the franchise tag.

Manning would be in a position to squeeze the Colts for a monstrous contract -- even more monstrous than the one he'll get even if the franchise tag is applied. The more Manning gets, the more Brees gets.

Meanwhile, Giants safety Chad Jones, seriously injured in a 2010 auto accident, hopes to continue his football career as a linebacker in the summer of 2012.

The 2010 third-round draft choice from LSU lost speed will likely force a position change. Jones has to learn how to stand, walk and jog all over again, and still has a long road ahead just to get back into football shape.

After a dozen surgeries -- and more to come -- experts have a hard time believing he'll ever play in the NFL. Here's hoping he defies the long odds.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning, who has been fairly quiet during the lockout, was a guest on Monday on The Dan Patrick Show on ESPN. And Peyton's younger brother continued his sudden burst of loquaciousness via an interview with the Associated Press.
