Peyton Manning’s Huge Contract Revealed
March 20, 2012 by staff
Peyton Manning’s Huge Contract Revealed, Tim Tebow could wind up being traded if the Broncos land Peyton Manning. We expected the most decorated free agent in N.F.L. history to have selected a new team by now. We’re still waiting, and the fate of three franchises – the Titans, the Broncos and the 49ers – hangs in the air. The longer the wait, the tougher the failed Peyton Manning pursuit will be for two of those franchises – at least in terms of team morale.
But the Titans aren’t risking that much by chasing Manning. Having made it clear after the season that they’re entering 2012 with a quarterback competition between Matt Hasselbeck and Jake Locker, the confidence and credibility of their next signal-caller had already been a bit compromised. Pursuing Manning makes little dent in that situation.
The Broncos have a quarterback with a rabid fan base behind him. From the Broncos’ perspective, though, Tim Tebow doesn’t have that much quarterbacking credibility to begin with. Tebow, despite his 46.5 completion percentage, “earned the right to be the starting quarterback going into training camp” (John Elway’s words), but any fan who tries to argue that Tebow would have the right to play ahead of a four-time M.V.P. may not have much credibility either.
The Manning-to-Mile High speculation has started rumblings that Tebow may now be headed out of Denver. Some have suggested that even if Manning spurns Denver, Elway at this point may still pursue another quarterback. Perhaps Alex Smith. The Niners veteran is in a spot similar to Tebow’s. Smith recently recorded a postseason victory with a team that is built around defense and running (i.e. hiding the quarterback’s limitations). But Matt Barrow of The Sacramento Bee writes, “Smith almost assuredly would leave the 49ers if they were to sign (Manning) there is a growing sense that Smith may not be back even if Manning goes elsewhere.” Barrow adds: Smith “is upset at the 49ers, perhaps not because the monetary offer they made him – reportedly $24 million over three years – but because of the job security it provides. Smith felt the 49ers made a commitment to him as their future starter that was not reflected in the contract offer.”
