Peyton Manning Rumors 2012: Denver Broncos Will Inquire About Free Agent QB, According To Report

The Denver Broncos will enter the wild derby that will become the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post. This comes just one day after Klis believed the Broncos would not be a bidder for Manning's services.

But before we start labeling the Broncos as a real player for the quarterback, Klis writes that the team is merely calling Manning's agent, Tom Condon, to gauge his client's interest in Denver. Klis then breaks down the reasons why the team might not do it, ones we've mentioned here already: Manning's neck issues, his age, Tim Tebow.

Bringing in Manning isn't a bad idea, but the team sure does need to have a plan in case the worst-case scenario happens: Manning's neck isn't healed and he can't play. How many seasons are the Broncos going to alienate Tim Tebow as the supposed starter for the team?
