Peyton Manning Ignored Chiefs Overtures To Visit, According To Peter King

It’s uncertain who or what is to blame for the lack of a visit to Arrowhead Stadium from Peyton Manning. Were the Chiefs really interested? Was it Peyton who wasn’t interested? Peter King explains via Twitter today that it was all on Manning’s end, and that Kansas City’s front office was definitely interested.

Manning has taken official visits to the Arizona Cardinals, Denver Broncos and then today with the Tennessee Titans. Despite the public appeals from Chiefs owner Clark Hunt as well as the positive statements from Romeo Crennel at the NFL Combine, Manning passed over KC on his way through the country. It takes two, as they say.

At the very least, the inability of the Chiefs to get Manning into Arrowhead was not a lack of interest on the part of the team. The public side matched the private appeal, so it’s not for lack of trying. Of course, that still doesn’t negate the fact that Manning didn’t bother — a sign that might point to deeper issues with the team.
