Much to the delight of the folks over at R&S Mattress, Peyton Manning spent the night in the Arizona, where he’ll resume his free agent whirlwind tour.

Per Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, Manning will continue meeting with the Cardinals’ brass on Sunday following a two-day pitstop in the Mile High City.

Manning flew in on Saturday night to meet with the Cardinals, who declined comment.

Somers notes that Peyton is “expected” to visit with the Dolphins in the days ahead, but that would obviously change if he doesn’t leave the desert without first signing a contract.

The team — like Manning — is said to want to resolve this quickly, as incumbent quarterback Kevin Kolb is due a $7 million bonus on March 17. Ideally, they’d like that money to go toward the future Hall of Famer instead.

They’ll have competition, however, as Broncos owner Pat Bowlen is reportedly willing to spend big to land Manning.

Though, from all accounts, the Cards have a leg up on both Miami and Denver, as the idea of playing with receiver Larry Fitzgerald and for coach Ken Whisenhunt supposedly “intrigues” Manning.

Intent on making a decision by Tuesday, the NFL’s start of free agency, we’ll see if the Cardinals are really as attractive an option to Manning as the bevy of reports have indicated. If he jets to South Beach without signing on the dotted line, the club likely has seen the last of him.
