After being released by the Indianapolis Colts, Peyton Manning has several teams interested in his services, such as the Denver Broncos, Miami Dolphins, and Arizona Cardinals.
Today, Manning talked with the Broncos for six hours, chatting with head coach John Fox and VP of operations, John Elway.
The Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly contacted Manning for his services as well.
"He's one of the greatest players in the history of the league," Chiefs owner Clark Hunt told NBC Sports Network. "He's also an incredible person. We feel really good about the team we have in Kansas City going into the 2012 season, but we'll look for any opportunity to improve and, of course, that includes Peyton Manning."
Some teams that are now out of the sweepstakes are the New York Jets, who have extended Mark Sanchez's contract. The Washington Redskins are also out, as Manning said no to them, along with the fact that they traded for the No. 2 pick of the NFL Draft now to get Robert Griffin III.
Sources have been saying that Manning is favoring the AFC, so the Cardinals or Seahawks may in fact be a longshot.
I see the Broncos or Dolphins as the best option. Going to Denver would be terrific for Manning, as he's with a strong run game, a solid defense, great O-Line, young receivers, nice coaching staff, and a chance to mentor Tim Tebow and work with his mechanics.
And it's a nice way to end his career: from a Colt to a Bronco.
That makes sense.
