While things are pretty much status quo on the Manning sweepstakes we like to keep our readers up to date so here’s what’s new.
The Kansas City Chiefs apparently are the only team to thus far make an actual offer to Peyton. Kansas City has been gaining steam as a dark horse in the Manning sweepstakes, while most are still skeptical of KC being the landing spot they remain a legit contender.
The second dark horse team which has stuck into the race is the Denver Bronco’s as Peter King has stated that like the Dolphins and other teams the Bronco’s are desperate to get Manning. Local writer Woody Paige still claims the Bronco’s and Manning won’t be a match. Peyton will meet with Denver today according to the Denver post.
In some pretty depressing news from Sheffty, he said that the Dolphins chances of signing Manning appear to be ‘dwindling’, claiming the helicopter chase and local media as a reason Peyton might be turned off.
Mort said last night that he expects Manning to make his decision within the next 3-4 days. While nothing really new has happen in the Peyton Manning sweepstakes there appears to be panic by many Dolfans on twitter. The Denver Post says Peyton would like to sign with a team by the start of NFL Free Agency Tuesday.
The Skins once thought to be in the race seem out now.
Right now it appears to be between the Dolphins, Cardinals, Chiefs and Broncos.
Miami most likely is still the favorite however it’s anyone’s guess. Let the games continue and let’s hope Jeff Ireland and Stephen Ross step it up.
Currently I am in the middle of extreme excitement envisioning Peyton in Aqua and Orange and complete and utter fear that Stephen Ross and Jeff Ireland will swing and miss again.
@evansilva Denver Post reports Peyton will also visit #Cardinals& #Dolphins, after tonight's #Broncos visit. 3 favorites to sign him.
@ClaytonESPN: With Denver being Peyton Mannings first stop, they are big players in the Manning sweepstakes. Miami is still the favorite
"First visit does not mean Denver is leader in clubhouse." -
@ArmandoSalguero: Told Manning's decision is basically #Cardinals or #Dolphins. Elway would have to fashion a DRIVE type rally to get him
