Newsflash! Manning's deal about as stuck as Brady's; same reason. Surprise?

"Outlining the state of negotiations between the team and star quarterback Peyton Manning, Indianapolis Colts team president Bill Polian doesn't expect a fast deal. Why not? Two reasons: the uncertain outlook for the collective bargaining agreement and the complexity of a blockbuster contract that's expected to be the richest in NFL history. Talks are taking place between the Colts and Manning's agent, Tom Condon. However, no deal is imminent. And the labor situation is a factor, according to Polian..." Sub in "Brady" for "Manning"; "Patriots" for "Colts" and "Kraft" for "Polian", and you get the picture. It's precisely the situation the writers on Pats Pulpit had been hypothesising all along - nobody is going to sign a $100M deal without knowing the labour/league situation first.
