When Peyton Manning finalized a deal to join the Broncos early this week, the general consensus was that his former teammate, center Jeff Saturday, would be following close behind him to sign up for a final run in Denver.
That notion failed to materialize today, after Saturday reached agreement with Green Bay to become their starter up front, replacing a Pro Bowl player in Scott Wells.
Although the addition of Manning certainly gives the Broncos a much better chance at reaching the Super Bowl, Saturday will have just as good a shot if not better at the same outcome by signing with the Packers, given the overall talent level and Aaron Rodgers at quarterback.
Saturday, 36, has appeared in 197 games over his 13 year career, all with the Colts, and has been selected to five Pro Bowls.
