Peyton Manning Rumors: Free Agent QB Doesn't Want To Play For A Cold-Weather Team, According To Report

The Denver Broncos are expected to be players in the coming Peyton Manning sweepstakes. Now, whether one believes the Broncos will be major players or merely a casual interest depends on whom one believes. They are a late addition to the teams that had been speculated as landing spots, and, well, the Broncos might play in too cold of a climate for Manning to join them. At least, that's what Mark Cannizzaro of the New York Post writes:

The Dolphins offer the kind of weather Manning wants to play in. Those close to Manning, who has played his entire career in a dome at home, say he has no interest playing with a cold-weather team.

This would make sense, and considering that the Dolphins' owner, Stephen Ross, reportedly wants Manning even if it means aggravating head coach Joe Philbin. Denver, on the other hand, starts to turn especially cold in late October most of the time and then keeps plummeting as we approach the playoffs in January.

But at this point, everyone is talking to a source who believes this or that, and there's little we can really be certain of with Manning.
