The Decision: Looking at the Oakland Raiders’ Chances of Landing Peyton Manning

The Decision: Looking at where Peyton Manning may end up if he becomes a free agent… today, we look at the:
Oakland is a stretch. They paid a fortune for Carson Palmer last year, and they also have Jason Campbell (who I think is a better option for the team than Palmer). They do not have a first round pick this year (in fact, they do not have a pick for the first few rounds) and are not much better off next year.
Their receiving core is not very good, and their defense is average. They have strong running backs (Darren McFadden and Michael Bush), but that is about it.
Oakland has a new head coach, Dennis Allen (the former Broncos’ defensive coordinator) and new GM Reggie McKenzie (Green Bay) and him will likely begin rebuilding the team.
So why would Peyton Manning possibly go to Oakland.
I only included the Raiders on this list because I have heard the Raiders mentioned quite a bit. Let me tell you, it will not happen.
Chances of landing Manning: 2/10
Chances of playoffs with healthy Manning: 85%
Chances of winning super bowl with healthy Manning: 40%
