    Arizona is good. Keeps him out of the AFC. Denver, not so much.

    Actually this puts the Dolphins well into the lead for signing Peyton, imo.




    Don't miss the end, lol.

    Can't imagine what teams contacted Peyton if Denver & Arizona are the front runners.

    Not like Denver and Arizona are bad teams to go to.

    Denver overachieved last year. Even with Peyton they are not a super bowl contender. They need to make some more moves.

    Peyton and the Colts were a machine. Yes, Manning was the engine that drove it. But, he had to have parts that fit what he does. Denver doesn't have those parts. A poor choice on Peyton's part if he chooses the Broncos.

    I agree with Dutchrudder and Lucky somewhat. That Denver defense was legit enough for Tebow to be able to capture America's heart with his fourth quarter heroics. Unfortunately, Manning needs a solid line and I think Denver has a ways to go there. As for WRs... I think premeire free agents will flock to wherever Manning signs.

    I'm thinking Peyton Manning signs with Dallas. Jerry Jones has got to be tired of Romo. Arizona and KC are where hall-of-famers go to die out.

    Peyton Manning is so competitive, he flew from Denver to Arizona just to get that hour back.

    Unless John Fox gives him the freedom to do what he wants to do & the Broncos go out & get Wayne & Garcon.

    If anything can end this "Tebow-mania" I think it's Peyton-mania



    at least or a little while.

    I'm not putting any stock in any of this.

    I remember last off-season Aso was going everywhere except where he ended up.

    Denver, Arizona, Miami, and at least one other team are still in the mix.

    Per Mort's Tweet, he'll be visiting with titans HC Munchak and Phins HC Philbin within the next 3 days. Visits will be away from teams facilities
