This would seem pretty far fetched that an actor would break major news that one of the NFL’s best players is calling it a career, except that Lowe is boys with Colts owner Jim Irsay. “Parks and Recreation” is set in Indiana and “St. Elmo’s Fire” is a legendary Indianapolis steakhouse.

The Colts franchise has been in disarray since Manning was ruled out for the season following neck surgery. The problem with Manning’s neck is considered to be career-threatening, and really, at the risk of paralysis what more does the 36-year-old future HOF QB have left to prove?
