The plane has landed.

Peyton Manning, John Elway and the Denver Broncos are at Dove Valley as we speak. The Broncos will try to keep the greatest free agent in NFL history in Denver, away from the Arizona Cardinals, where he has reportedly scheduled another visit.

Local media swarmed Centennial airport. A few dozen fans and more media awaited their arrival at Dove Valley. ESPN aired helicopter footage over Broncos HQ.

Arrive they did. (See, there’s a grainy slideshow. And video).

It’s all a little nuts.

It will be interesting to see whether the Broncos will insist they see Manning throw before hammering out a deal. Manning could easily hint that another team would be willing to sign him without having to see him work out. Manning might even be right. Would the Broncos do the right thing and insist he throw the route tree before throwing tens of millions of dollars at him?

One would hope so. We’ll soon find out.
