Though Peyton Manning may still be a couple of days away from choosing his next team, the Denver Post reports that two more have joined the group of franchises who won’t be employing him.
According to Mike Klis of the Post, the Seahawks and Chiefs are out.
Both teams wanted to meet with Manning, and in each case Manning declined.
Klis also writes that the 49ers could make a late run at Manning, based on whether the 49ers can get Alex Smith under contract. Both Manning and Smith are represented by Tom Condon of CAA.
Peyton has met with both the Broncos and the Cardinals, Per Klis, money has not yet been discussed.
Speaking of money, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is reportedly “ready to make a major offer.” But the Broncos, Klis says, will be competitive with whatever Ross offers.
Then there are the Titans. Owner Bud Adams said Sunday that he wants to bring Peyton home to Tennessee, where he attended college. It’s unknown whether Manning is interested in playing for the Titans.
A decision is expected by Tuesday or Wednesday.
