The Denver Broncos, and several other teams, have been in contact with free agent quarterback Peyton Manning’s agent, Tom Condon today, according to the Denver Post‘s Mike Klis.

Talks are no more than preliminary, though, because Manning has not yet decided where he will finish his career and wants to take today to rest, work out and clear his mind, according to two NFL sources.

Per Klis, there are six teams — Miami, Arizona, San Francisco, Tennessee, Houston and Denver — that are actively pursuing Manning.  According to reports, Manning is expected to meet with the Dolphins and Titans in the coming days.  There has been speculation that Manning will also meet with the Texans, but that has not been confirmed.

As MaxDenver.com‘s Andrew Mason has pointed out, this is the first and only time in Manning’s career that he’ll get to explore free agency, so he’ll explore every possible destination.  Mason went on to note that Broncos fans should not be overly concerned because the team gave Manning a great sales pitch and they are feeling good about their chances.

Here we go… Things will get fun over the next few days.
