EAST RUTHERFORD - The Colts announced this afternoon that they are parting ways with star quarterback Peyton Manning.

Several ESPN reports indicate that the Jets may be among the teams interested in signing the four-time MVP. The Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins have also indicated interest in the veteran quarterback.

Manning's former longtime offensive coordinator Tom Moore did work with the Jets as a consultant last season.

Indianapolis chose to release the future Hall-of-Famer rather than pay him a $28 million bonus, making him a free agent.

In the past Manning has said his goal was to play his entire career with the Colts, but a damaged nerve that forced him to have neck surgery kept him out of action for all of 2011.

AP wire services contributed to this report.
