Peyton Manning will sign with the Denver Broncos after a whirlwind week of rampant speculation fueled by anyone and everyone. After it was leaked two weeks ago that Manning would be released (it came a day later on Wednesday), the speculation on where he would land heated up. In the end, it wound up being the first team he visited: the Broncos.
From @mortreport and me: Peyton Manning will become the next quarterback of the Denver Broncos, barring unexpected snag in contract talks.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 19, 2012
The terms of his deal are not yet known, but both sides are believed to be working off the parameters of Manning's five-year, $90 million deal he signed last July, the one that he signed and then never played a down of football after for the Indianapolis Colts.
So, with Manning in the fold, we now wait for Tim Tebow's future to unfold -- likely elsewhere.
