"A couple of different sources inside the organization have told me that Manning's camp made it pretty clear to Redskins officials he doesn't want to come here," Russell said Thursday on ESPN's "SportsCenter," via ProFootballTalk.com.

But unless that changes -- and I'm taking my sources at their word -- I don't think Manning's coming here to D.C."
NFL Network analyst Marshall Faulk -- a former teammate of Manning's in Indy -- stated emphatically on Wednesday that Manning will never play in the same conference, let alone division, as his brother.
In other words, don't hold your breath, 'Skins fans. On the bright side, the John Beck/Rex Grossman tag team can still be yours at a veryreasonable price.
