Denver Broncos Offer Peyton Manning Reported 5-Year, $60 Million Contract

If you want to know just how amazing a quarterback Peyton Manning has been in the NFL, just look at the terms offered to him by the Denver Broncos according to a report from Mike Klis of the Denver Post. Thought he didn’t play last season, had four neck surgeries in the last year, still is not completely healthy and is on the wrong side of 35, Manning is still being offered a reported five year, $60 million deal from the Broncos.

How does that compare to the odd off from the Tennessee Titans for a “work for life” position? Hard to tell at this point. But it is serious that the entire Denver Broncos organization is committed to making this work. They received the first visit. They’ve been included from the start. They’ve ignored fan overtures wondering why they would replace Tim Tebow. They’ve also taken the family van, er, plane to Duke to watch him throw. They are serious.

That level of commitment might be enough to snag Manning. No timetable has been given, but it’s clear that something should happen soon when official terms start being thrown around. Will the Titans match or beat it? Will the Broncos win? We’ll find out soon enough.
