Peyton Manning Update: Broncos And Titans Reportedly Final Two Teams, Per Bill Polian

The Peyton Manning sweepstakes are reportedly down to two teams if you believe ESPN’s Bill Polian (weird to write that). The former Colts general manager might have some sort of inside knowledge here, but he’s reporting that the competition for Manning is down to the Denver Broncos and the Tennessee Titans. For both teams, it will generate some definite excitement, but it will also create a bit of a quandary for the current quarterbacks on the team.

For the Denver Broncos, the mess of what to do with Tim Tebow comes into view. He’s a solid young quarterback who just won a playoff game against the Steelers last season one year after the Broncos were among the worst teams in football. Many have predicted they would trade Tebow, but would the fan base revolt even with Peyton in house? That remains to be seen.

For the Titans, it seemed as if they already had their present and future options in hand with Matt Hasselbeck holding down the fort until last year’s first rounder Jake Locker was ready to take the helm. Hasselbeck did a fine job last year as the starter and this seems to be a weird jump. Then again, if you can somehow get the best free agent to come to you, then why not? Deal with the mess later.

That might be what the Titans and Broncos plan on doing. Acquire Manning first and see what happens later. For now, it’s intriguing that it might be down just to these two.
