San Francisco 49ers
The Denver Broncos convinced Peyton Manning to choose signing with them over the Tennessee Titans, San Francisco 49ers and countless other teams who pursued the future Hall of Fame quarterback. John Elway has demonstrated that he is all in for the team to get back to the Super Bowl, as they made a tremendous upgrade at the most important position on the field.
This is where all of the Tim Tebowmaniacs can feel free to bash me, but there is no comparison between Manning and Tebow whatsoever.
Well, they did both play in the SEC in college, but, beyond that, Tebow is not even in the same league as Manning. Even though the two are currently on the same team. But that won’t last. More on that in the near future.
But Denver is serious about competing for a Super Bowl, and they are serious about doing so now. Manning is going to be paid quite handsomely to help make that happen.
But even Manning cannot do it alone. Elway still needs to surround him with the right pieces, and w...

Before the start of free agency there was plenty of speculation that the Pittsburgh Steelers could end up losing WR Mike Wallace despite the fact that he was a restricted free agent. The Steelers were way over the cap but managed to get that in order before teams could start throwing offers at the receiver. ESPN Bostons Mike Reiss mentions that the Patriots signing of Brandon...

After going after Peyton Manning, and then hosting Matt Flynn and Alex Smith, the Dolphins landed a quarterback on Monday with multiple reports indicated they have come to terms with former Jacksonville starter David Garrard.
Englewood, CO (Sports Network) - Peyton Manning is officially a member of the Denver Broncos.
The four-time MVP and future Hall of Fame quarterback signed with the Broncos on Tuesday, less than two weeks after being released by the Indianapolis Colts.
"I'm very excited to begin the next chapter of my playing career with the Denver Broncos," Manning said at an afternoon...
The Pittsburgh Steelers took a calculated risk by not franchising wide receiver Mike Wallace and placing a first-round tender on the receiver. Thus far it has worked. But Peter King of SI.com thinks if Peyton Manning rejects the 49ers and they lose Alex Smith, they would sign free-agent quarterback Josh Johnson and if the Niners save $8 million a year by not signing Smith and by...
He was regarded as the second best free-agent quarterback on the market. I'm not quite sure why since he hasn't proven anything, but nonetheless many people regarded him as the No. 2 guy on the market behind Peyton Manning. The Seattle Seahawks agreed that he was a top free-agent quarterback as they signed Matt Flynn to a three-year deal worth $26 million, $10 million of...
Adam Schefter reports that Peyton Manning has called John Elway this morning and told him he is looking forward to playing for Denver.
Peyton Manning Better in NFL, Tim Tebow Better in College
Peyton Manning is a Bronco.
I am not surprised by this. I predicted it the minute it was announced that Jim Irsay was going to cut him loose. For five years and $96 million, I would be a Bronco too. Actually, I would have signed for $95 million, but Manning said it wasn’t the money.
So the next question is, what happens...
Peyton Manning will become the next quarterback of the Denver Broncos, barring a snag during intensified contract negotiations that have commenced under the instruction of the four-time MVP to his agent Tom Condon, according to multiple sources.

So in one of the more strange, weird, wacky QB free agency shuffling going on right about now, the Seattle Seahawks may have struck first as the NFL waits for Peyton Manning to make up his mind already. Peter King, among many, is now reporting that Matt Flynn has agreed to a 3-year, $26 million dollar deal with the Seahawks, but only $10 million of it is guaranteed. And per...
