If Tony Dungy is correct, Manning will be back next year, according to the Associated Press on IndyStar.com.
“I was with him last week and he didn’t give me any indication one way or another, but he certainly didn’t say anything to me that led me to believe he wouldn’t be playing,” said Dungy. “My gut feeling is that he’ll be back unless he really has a health-related problem. He enjoys the team. He enjoys his teammates. I think he really wants to come back and play well and not let that be the last game of his career.”
Here are some more links from around the AFC:

The Steelers have released defensive back Curtis Brown, according to agent Chad Speck of Allegiant Athletic Agency (Twitter link). Brown, a third-round pick in 2011, had one year remaining on his rookie contract.
Although Brown saw a good deal of playing time on defense in 2012 as the nickel corner, he was relegated primarily to special teams duty in 2013. An ACL injury ended his season prematurely, but Speck indicates in his tweet that Brown will be ready for the 2014 season.
The Steelers’ cap savings in the move are minimal, since Brown’s cap number is only reduced by $645K. Still, every little bit should help Pittsburgh as the team looks to sneak under the cap before the new league year begins on Tuesday.
