Schefter is also reporting that a total of 12 teams reached out to Manning's representatives (other rumored suitors are Seattle, Washington, Arizona and Miami, among others), and that Manning would prefer to stay in the AFC rather than go to a NFC squad. Complicating matters will be where Manning ranks for specific teams relative to other free agent candidates, as well as the NFL Draft. Miami has been reportedly focused on Manning first, and then Packers backup Matt Flynn second.
