On Friday, we had Kyle Shanahan hinting that the Redskins would be interested in Peyton Manning of he is healthy and available. Today another log was thrown on the fire.According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed the Redskins interest in Manning.The source pointed out that there is considerable doubt as to whether Manning is healthy and if he will be released by the Colts, who must decide by March 8 if they will pay him a 28 million option bonus or release him. Still, if all is well the Redskins could be players when it comes to signing him.Youd be crazy not to want Peyton Manning if he was healthy, the official said.Well, even a quite sane individual might have doubts about signing a quarterback who soon will be 36 and missed all of the 2011 season with a neck injury and underwent three surgeries on that issue in a period of 18 months. But it is possible that Manning is an option on the table for the Redskins.
