Peyton Manning Rumors: Washington Redskins Lead Suitors Above Dolphins, Chiefs

For fans of the Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs or any other team hoping that Peyton Manning will make his way in their direction, Mike Freeman of CBS Sports has some bad news. That’s because he says that the Washington Redskins are leading the rumor mill, for whatever that’s worth, and that it’s not even close.

In his latest Ten Point Stance column, Freeman writes, “Speaking of Peyton, everyone I speak to in the NFL — and I mean just about everyone — believes if Manning becomes a free agent, the Washington Redskins will sign him.”

That’s an interesting choice that he would want to face his brother twice a season and have to even go through the defending champions to be able to make the playoffs or win a division title. There are other places to play that would be much easier and allow him to also succeed. But perhaps there is something to the rumors that the Redskins would also bring in several of Manning’s former teammates with the Colts.

If Manning is going to be swayed by the addition of other former Colts players like Jeff Saturday or Reggie Wayne among others, that might be too steep of a price for most general managers to pay. Then again, a quarterback like Manning, if healthy, would make any such endeavor worth it.
