In a surprising turn of events, the NCAA tournament has taken a back seat to NBA trades and NFL free agency -- until two-seeds Mizzou and Duke lost that is. One of the main reasons the NFL has been the center of attention is NFL great Peyton Manning. After the Colts refused to pay for his $28 million bonus, he has been on a tour of teams across America. The word on the street is that he has officially turned down the Dolphins and has narrowed down his options to Denver, San Francisco, and Tennessee. Manning worked out in Denver today, and according to the Denver Post, John Elway and the Broncos offered Manning $90 million for five years of service. Elway publicly reacted extremely positively about the visit.
We enjoyed visiting with Peyton today in N.C. He threw the ball great and looked very comfortable out there.— John Elway (@johnelway) March 16, 2012
Watching him throw today was the next step in this important process for our team and Peyton. It was a productive visit and went well.— John Elway (@johnelway) March 16, 2012
What do you guys think? What would you pay for a guy that's coming off of four neck surgeries? Is he going to work best with Kenny Britt and Chris Johnson, Willis McGahee and Demaryius Thomas, or Frank Gore and Randy Moss? Let us know.
