Peyton Manning Rumors: Romeo Crennel Says Chiefs Would Be 'Crazy' Not To Consider Colts QB If Available

With the rumors at the beginning of the NFL Combine linking the Kansas City Chiefs and the agent for Peyton Manning swirling, both the Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli and head coach Romeo Crennel were asked about the possibilities of the Chiefs signing Manning if the Colts were to release him. Both men sort of said the same thing, but Crennel was much more playful in his response.

Pioli was direct in his approach when asked about Manning and said that rules were in place to keep him from coming close to commenting on a player with another team. Crennel, on the other hand, tried to say the same thing, but came away with a more interesting take.

“Well, I’m not supposed to talk about anybody else’s players,” Crennel said with a smile, “he’s still a player with Indianapolis. But with a talent like that, I would be crazy not to consider it if he were available. All right? I’ll leave it at that.”

It’s easy to take that statement and description from Ian Rapoport of the Boston Globe and run with it in some way, shape or form. That would be irresponsible. At the same time, it seems that there is some sort of smoke around these rumors. If nothing else, it makes for a more dramatic offseason for the Chiefs after most believed the team would sign Kyle Orton and move on to other matters.
