The Colts are set to release quarterback Peyton Manning, according to multiple outlets, with the franchise making the official announcement on Wednesday.
After not missing a start since he entered the league as a rookie in 1998, the four-time MVP missed the entire 2011 season after his third neck surgery in 19 months, leaving his future in doubt. However, it was revealed Tuesday afternoon that Indianapolis will not pick up the final four years remaining on Manning's contract, which will allow the quarterback to become a free agent and take the Colts off the hook when it comes to the $28 million bonus that would have been due to the quarterback if he was on the roster going forward.
The 35-year-old Manning, the first overall pick in the 1998 NFL draft, has broken all of the Colts' franchise passing records. In addition, he has taken Indianapolis to the playoffs 11 times, and led the Colts to seven division titles in the last eight...
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Daniel Bard tossed a pair of shutout innings and Alfredo Aceves followed suit with two zeros of his own as the Red Sox claimed a 5-4 win over the Orioles at JetBlue Park on Tuesday afternoon.
Bard threw 31 pitches (21 strikes) while allowing just one baserunner on a walk and striking out two in his first multi-inning outing of the spring. Aceves was even more efficient, throwing 19 of his 26 pitches for strikes while delivering two perfect innings in which he struck out two.
Bard and Aceves are both being stretched out as candidates for the Red Sox rotation. While Aceves made four big league starts for the Sox last year, Bard has not made a professional start since 2008, and so by his own admission, there are adjustments to such elements as pitching out of the windup and developing a pre-game routine to start.
While the Red Sox took an early 4-0 lead, prospect Alex Wilson struggled in his inning-plus of work, allowing...
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- For the first time this spring, a candidate for the last two spots in the Red Sox rotation has been removed from consideration. Veteran right-hander Carlos Silva, who signed a minor league deal with the Sox this winter, has been shut down with shoulder inflammation that is serious enough to prevent him from being considered for the rotation with which the Sox will open the year.
"That’s probably going to set him back enough that he won’t be totally in the mix," said Sox manager Bobby Valentine, who said that while a definitive timetable was unavailable, the injury will keep Silva out of the "little picture situation."
Valentine said that the issue was related to a pre-existing condition that the Sox knew about.
"I think we know exactly what it is and we were hoping it wouldn’t present itself as quickly as it did," said Valentine.
Asked what the longer-term...
According to several reports, Randy Moss will work out for the Saints on Tuesday. The 35-year-old wide receiver did not play in 2011 and struggled in 2010, catching just 25 passes as he played for the Patriots, Vikings and Saints.
Moss reportedly met with the Saints at the team facility after New Orleans lost to the Packers in Week 1 last September, though the team denied the reports.
Moss ranks second in NFL history with 153 touchdown receptions, and his 954 catches place ninth on the all-time chart.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Speaking in the JetBlue Park home clubhouse prior to the Red Sox' game against the Orioles Tuesday morning, Carl Crawford talked about the approach he is taking with his surgically-repaired left wrist. It was learned, after being examined by Dr. Donald Sheridan Monday, that Crawford is going to go without any hitting or throwing for 5-7 days due to continued inflammation.
"Just took it in stride. There isn't too much I can do," he said. "I just have to go with the flow and do whatever I can. ... At the end of the day, it's probably best to wait until it heals correctly and that way I can be strong and I don't have to worry about it happening again."
Crawford later added, "I thought I would have been fine by now."
Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said Monday that having Crawford return by Opening Day was "probably not realistic." When asked about any adjusted goal...
