Free agent quarterback Peyton Manning will be taking his services to the Denver Broncos, according to NFL insider Chris Mortensen:
Sources informed LTSB that Broncos owner Pat Bowlen’s private jet was in Indianapolis late March 13th in a secret meeting with Manning’s camp, followed by John Elway and the Broncos financial team meeting for a late dinner Thursday March 15th before their staff of Elway, head coach Jon Fox, offensive coordinator and a medical staff flew to North Carolina Friday to watch Manning work out and possibly discuss contract parameters.
Manning and the Colts officially parted ways at a press conference March 7th. Manning, 35, will be replacing fan favorite Tim Tebow, who despite subpar passing statistics led the Broncos to the playoffs and a wild card victory before falling to the Patriots. Tebow will reportedly be available for trade.
