Peyton Manning Rumors: Kansas City Chiefs Only Team To Offer Full Contract On Thursday

The Kansas City Chiefs were the only team to offer a completed contract to free agent quarterback Peyton Manning on Thursday, according to Denver radio host Brandon Spano. Spano's source says that Kansas City appears to be the most prepared of the teams interested in Manning's services.

Following his recent release from the Indianapolis Colts, rumors tied Manning to the Denver Broncos, who could potentially be looking for an upgrade to incumbent starting quarterback Tim Tebow. Numerous other teams were also named as possibilities, many of which don't have an option that's as established and loved by the fanbase as the former Florida Gator is in Mile High.

Last season, the Chiefs used Matt Cassel at quarterback before injuries broke down the team's QB depth chart. If Kansas City can gets its hands on Manning, expect Cassel to be on his way out.
