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.
Manning will reportedly meet with the Cardinals this weekend.
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.
