As chatter of Peyton Manning’s future with the Colts comes out and possible landing spots are brought up, John Clayton of ESPN insists that two familiar names in the Redskins and Dolphins are still the favorites despite chatter that’s recently placed other teams in the fold. Recent rumors have favored the Seahawks and the Chiefs have been brought up tonight as a local KC radio host, Bob Fescoe, placed the Chiefs talking to Tom Condon, Manning’s agent.
Clayton’s recent tweet says that the two teams are the frontrunners if Manning is released, but doesn’t give any reason or context. He doesn’t even note any sources at all, so it’s hard to tell where Clayton is speaking from. At this point, it’s all conjecture and even the Colts are saying they don’t know how things are going work out yet. One thing is clear: the furor over Manning is not going to end anytime soon and with the NFL concentrated together once again in Indy, it’s going to be a consistent stream of rumors and commentary about a situation that likely won’t be resolved in the very near future.
