I know, right?
I would have figured that Ray-Ray would have only had to pay off in the realm of $10M to be allowed to use deer antler spray and not get suspended for it while 'buying' a Championship on his way out the door.
The last $12.3 M must have been to pay off Peyton Manning and the Broncos D for refusing to play D on that hail Mary, taking a knee and throwing that pick. That would explain their post-game meeting.
