We, along with all of the sports world [presumably], have been keeping a close eye on Quarterback Peyton Manning in Free Agency as he has pursued the next chapter of his NFL career.
Today, March 19, 2012, Peyton Manning, formerly of the Indianapolis Colts, has agreed to terms and is finalizing his contract with the Denver Broncos.
Manning had been courted by the Broncos, Tennessee Titans, and the San Francisco 49ers in his free agency run. As soon as Manning met with the Broncos, they became a front-runner in most people's minds.
Reports have all suggested that Peyton Manning has been throwing well in workouts for teams, and the Broncos have a good, talented, young core of players and Manning will likely have the option to negotiate for a player or two with whom he is familiar.
Denver may be competitive with a QB of Manning's stature, who is clearly good for 10-12 more wins than the entire rest of his roster on any given year as evidenced by the Colts' performance without him compared to with.
