The Peyton Manning sweepstakes start tomorrow
The move will save the Colts from spending a $28M bonus, and it will also give them the freedom to draft Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III as their QB of the future without any reservations.
Jay Glazer listed the Dolphins, Redskins, Cardinals, Chiefs, Seahawks and Jets as possible destinations for Manning, with 1 or 2 teams possibly coming out of the woodwork.
A future Hall of Famer, Peyton will be one of the most highly sought after free agents in league history, despite coming off several neck surgeries and missing the entire 2011 season.
It's hard to believe Manning will live up to expectations no matter where he goes. He's had 4 neck surgeries, and even before missing 2011, he had 33 interceptions in his last two actual seasons. Also, his postseason record is less than stellar. Can he really join a struggling team like the ones listed, and suddenly make them a Super Bowl contender?
There's no doubt that he'll be better than their other options. But at 36 years old, expectations might be a little too lofty for Manning. Regardless, we'll keep you posted when we find out where he's going.
