Indianapolis Colts president Bill Polian says he understands the need for him to field questions about Peyton Manning's contract situation.
That doesn't mean he's got much new to offer on the subject.
"There is no deadline, there is no timeline, Jim [Irsay] never said there was, I never said there was, [agent] Tom Condon has never said that there was," Polian said. "I talk to Tom all the time, sometimes about Peyton. There have been conversations and there will be."
Irsay has said Manning -- entering the final of a seven-year, $98 million contract -- will be the highest-paid player in the league. He has also talked of the necessity of holding the roster together.
