Peyton's Place: Broncos, other suitors line up for Manning

E-mail Print PDF

Whether you think the Indianapolis Colts made the right move or not, the fact remains that Peyton Manning will play for another team in 2012 if he is healthy. But what team?

Close to half of the teams in the NFL have shown some interest in the legendary free agent. The biggest market franchise to inquire about Manning is the New York Jets, and that news is not going over well with their starter Mark Sanchez.

Manning flew to south Florida but did not talk to the eager Dolphins after Wednesday press conference announcing his release in Indianapolis. But the man who many consider the best to have ever played the game is exploring all possible options.

The Kansas City Chiefs have already offered Manning a contract without a face-to-face meeting, according to Denver sports talk host Brandon Spano.

Speaking of Denver, Manning went to the Mile High City on Friday to meet with John Elway and John Fox. There is a chance that 'Tebow Time' could turn into 'Who's the Manning?' at Invesco Field.

The trend continues with the reports that the 14-year veteran Manning prefers to continue his career with an AFC squad. 

However, the league's most notorious big spenders are the NFC's Washington Redskins. But it appears owner Daniel Snyder's checkbook is more likely to open up for Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III if the Redskins can manage to trade up to the second overall pick in April's NFL Draft. The Post also weighs some of the aforementioned Manning suitors' chances and also includes the Arizona Cardinals in the mix.

Arizona and Miami will have their chance to meet with Manning after his Denver visit, according to Yahoo! Sports.
