Though there could still be a long way to go before quarterback Peyton Manning picks a new team, the Broncos think they see the finish line.
Vic Lombardi of CBS4 in Denver reports that the Broncos are now “95% confident” that they will land Peyton.
Why so confident?
Vic Lombardi says that the Broncos heard from Manning on Sunday night.
So when does he show the Broncos he can throw?
UPDATE 12:56 a.m. ET: Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports, citing a “Manning source,” that “Manning didn’t call [Broncos] today or tonight & inform they’re 95% fave.” But that’s not what Vic Lombardi reported. He said that Manning called, and that as a result the Broncos are “95% confident” they’ll get Peyton. Did anyone really think Peyton called and said he’s “95% certain” to pick the Broncos?
