NEW ORLEANS - Colts owner Jim Irsay signaled on Monday some impatience with getting Peyton Manning's new contract done. Manning, who is slated to make 23 million in 2011 under the franchise tag, is seeking a new contract. The Colts have basically promised to make Manning the highest paid quarterback in the history of earth. Yet the new deal didn't get done to the seeming consternation of Irsay."It should get done," said Irsay. "If you ask me it should have gotten done. You'll have to ask Manning's agent Tom Condon why it's not done."After maintaining that Manning has a willingness to sign a deal that helps the Colts remain a deep team, Irsay reiterated, "It should get done. I would have thought it would have been done already. But these things get donewhen they do."
