Colts Corner: Manning Watch and Freeney Trade?

Manning Watch:

Peyton Manning began his free agent tour in Denver today.  However, as Jay Glazer said on twitter:

Manning chose Denver as his first visit bc he’s familiar w people there like Elway and Fox. Wanted his 1st visit to be w ppl he knows well

Peter King tweeted about the Broncos and Manning:

Denver wants Manning “desperately,” one competitor for Peyton tells me.

The Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly already offered Peyton a contract and their owner acknowledged their interest in Manning.

Manning will reportedly meet with the Cardinals this weekend.

Dwight Freeney:

The Colts are entertaining trade talks about Dwight Freeney, according to ESPN.  Freeney would be a huge loss for the Colts defense, but it would free up $14 million in cap room.  Freeney is the best pass rusher in the NFL, but in all honesty, is not a great fit in Chuck Pagano’s 3-4 defense.  Robert Mathis is a much better fit.  If the Colts can get a high round draft pick or two for Freeney, I would be happy.  It is a complete rebuilding.  That said, before a team would trade for Freeney he would need to restructure his contract.

A lot of change has already happened at West 56th street, and a lot of change may still be to come.
