Mike Klis of the Denver Post is reporting that Peyton Manning is in Denver tonight to meet with the Denver Broncos front office and specifically John Elway. The two quarterbacks will likely have a lot to talk about, but it’s interesting that Manning is using his second full day of free agency freedom to visit the Mile High City.
“This is getting serious, folks,” writes Klis. “Manning, arguably the most decorated free agent in NFL history, has the Broncos on his short list. The long-time Indianapolis Colts quarterback was released earlier this week amid concerns about his neck, a $26 million bonus payment and the team’s opportunity to select highly prized quarterback Andrew Luck with the No. 1 pick in the upcoming NFL draft.”
Questions can come into the picture about Tim Tebow’s future rather quickly in a scenario like this, but until there’s any official word or even reports that the Broncos are in the driver’s seat for Manning’s services, this visit is only important to note that there has been some level of communication — enough to warrant such an appearance. Beyond that, anything is speculation.
