Peyton Manning closing in on pay cut

The Denver Broncos are set to adjust star quarterback Peyton Manning's contract to reduce his base salary from $19 million to $15 million, according to ESPN. The move is intended to create more salary-cap space for the AFC West club. Manning is a five-time NFL Most Valuable Player. To finalize the deal, Manning has to take and pass a physical within the next day. Manning isn't expected to have a problem doing that.
