Once quarterback Peyton Manning, a four-time NFL MVP, was released by the Indianapolis Colts after 14 seasons, it was apparent a bidding war of massive proportion would ensue from teams looking to secure the franchise QB in free agency.
Manning had many suitors — the Miami Dolphins, San Francisco 49ers, Tennessee Titans, Arizona Cardinals, and Denver Broncos — and after multiple workouts and massive speculation it looks like Peyton has finally made a decision.
Manning will join John Fox and John Elway in the mile high city as the newest Denver Bronco.
Peyton will assume the place of Tim Tebow, and attempt to bring one or two Lombardi Trophy’s back to a franchise far removed from the success of the Broncos of the late 90’s.
It comes as no surprise that Manning chose Denver, as it was said it was among his favorite targets along with the Titans and 49ers.
The next logical questions for the franchise is what to do with Tim Tebow, their young charismatic quarterback that inspired the Broncos fan base while carrying the team to the playoffs last season.
In fourteen NFL seasons Manning has thrown for 54,828 yards, 399 touchdowns, completed 65% of his passes, and thrown only 198 interceptions.
