Peyton Manning Narrows His Options

Peyton Manning Narrows His Options, As Peyton Manning continues his free-agency tour, a few teams have been bounced out of the tournament, whether of their own volition or not. Manning apparently had a very positive and productive visit with the Denver Broncos, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, and then, he wound his way down to Arizona, where he met with Cardinals officials, head coach Ken Whisenhunt and receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

Manning is now out of Arizona, having returned to his Florida home. There’s no indication whether he will meet with the Miami Dolphins, who are rumored to be ready to put on the full-court press, but Klis says in a very interesting report that Manning intends to make his decision by Tuesday — that’s the starting day of the new league year and the point where teams can officially negotiate with non-released free agents.

Klis wrote that Manning didn’t bring agent Tom Condon along on either visit, and that neither the Broncos nor the Cardinals have made official offers. Manning apparently chose to make these visits more informal so that he could get a better sense of what each team was really like without the potentially adversarial aspect of money talk mucking things up. Manning was apparently very impressed with the Broncos organization after speaking with everyone in the front office, and the Cardinals countered Denver’s more informal approach with more of a “red-carpet treatment.”
