Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay said former general manager Bill Polian wanted to trade QB Peyton Manning back in 2004 with contract talks between the sides seemingly going nowhere. Polian reportedly told Irsay, "We need to trade Peyton; we can get a bunch of defensive players and become like Tampa Bay or Baltimore." Irsay, however, was not interested.
