Manning’s Silence Helping Owners

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning’s silence about the NFL lockout has been deafening, and that’s music to the ears of NFL owners. Mike Freeman, of cbssports.com, has the story, below.

Quarterback Peyton Manning #18 of the Indianapolis Colts looks on against the New York Jets during their 2011 AFC wild card playoff game at Lucas Oil Stadium on January 8, 2011 in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Jets won 17-16.

The most advertised and self-promoting NFL player maybe in history is suddenly camera shy. Peyton Manning, who has never met a 60-second ad he didn’t like, now doesn’t want his close-up.

The man who has sold everything from Gatorade to MasterCard is just about invisible. He’s cloaked and doing everything possible to stay that way as the NFL goes through its own rapture. The lockout is over two months old and we’ve heard nothing from one of the key plaintiffs.
