Quarterback Peyton Manning intends to have a new team within a week. As Jay Glazer of FOX pointed out earlier on Thursday via Twitter, teams want to get Peyton on board as soon as possible.
As Glazer explains, teams want to use Manning as a recruiting tool for other free agents.
The first target, of course, will be receiver Reggie Wayne. Beyond that, plenty of other guys with options could end up opting to join Peyton’s new team.
And Manning will have every incentive to cooperate. Winning another Super Bowl surely is at or near the top of his list, and attracting quality players will go a long way toward making that happen.
