As has been speculated over the last couple of weeks, wherever Peyton Manning lands, so too might several of his former (now free agent) teammates from the Indianapolis Colts. There are now reports that NFL executives believe that not only will Manning join the Denver Broncos, but so will wide receiver Reggie Wayne and tight end Dallas Clark.

And we can probably find five other NFL executives who will tell us that they know of a different team for each of those three players. With so many rumors floating around, some are bound to slip through the cracks.
However, this one might actually have legs. The Broncos have the cap space to sign all three players, it appears, and owner Pat Bowlen is ready to open the checkbook to get Manning. If that means having to sign his teammates, Bowlen will certainly spend that money as well, it seems.
