Wonder what type of cash it’s gonna take to ink Peyton Manning?
Now we have a pretty good idea.
Various reports about Manning say that the Denver Broncos, the team that has been one of the front runners from the start, are ready to offer the QB a five-year, $60 million deal.
The reports say that $30 million of the contract is guaranteed.
A group of Broncos executives, including coach John Fox and Vice President of Football Operations John Elway, flew to Durham, North Carolina, today to watch Manning throw.
The four-time NFL Most Valuable Player also will work out for the Titans at an undecided future date, according to the NFL Network.
“If I’m the Denver Broncos and I’m going to put a significant financial investment into Peyton Manning, what I want to see is pretty much what I usually see at the college workouts for the top-level college players,” Mike Mayock, a former player and now an NFL Network analyst, said on its website. “If I get Peyton Manning, and it’s a healthy Peyton Manning, I’m thinking Super Bowl.”
If the deal goes through and Manning is the new Broncos QB, there’s word that the Broncos are going to shop around the services of QB Tim Tebow.
