NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports that free agent Peyton Manning has “nothing scheduled” after his Saturday night and Sunday visit in Arizona. Manning is expected to return to his Miami condo following the meeting with Cardinals brass.
While La Canfora acknowledges that this is “subject to change,” Manning is apparently not planning a stop in Kansas City before heading back east. Chiefs owner Clark Hunt is interested in Manning, but there are no indications that the feeling is mutual.
So the three favorites to sign Manning are the Broncos, Cardinals, and Dolphins, the latter of whom Manning will presumably visit when he returns to South Beach. Among the trio, a clear frontrunner has yet to emerge.
A Broncos team source did tell the Denver Post Saturday that Manning’s visit to Denver was “productive,” and the team is “hopeful and encouraged by the time spent” with the future Hall of Famer.
