Before he signed with the Broncos, the Tennessee Titans were the other major suitor for Peyton Manning. The Titans were able to offer Manning the opportunity to return to the state where he played his college ball, a lifetime contract, and a substantial salary. Up until now, however, it had not been known how substantial that salary was.
According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, the Titans’ offer to Peyton Manning was worth 25 million dollars yearly. This illustrates just how desperate “win-now” owner Bud Adams was to get Manning and also that Manning didn’t make his decision in Denver for financial reasons. Manning, who took 19.2 million per year from the Broncos, still the biggest yearly salary in the NFL, felt Denver was the place that gave him the best chance to win. The lure of playing for John Elway also probably had something to do with it as well.
This revelation could also have implications for Drew Brees and the Saints. The Saints and Brees are currently in heated negotiations ...

There is no NFL quarterback that has more commercial appeal than Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.
Recently, he did a brand-new commercial for Buick and below is the spoils from the 30-second spot which shows Peyton calling audibles in his car:
Introducing the new 2013 Buick Verano, and it's new spokesperson, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning. It won't go at break neck speed, and that's just how Peyton likes it. Perfect for those Pharmacy runs or to make that early bird special.
Ok, seriously, Manning is back to his obsession with hocking as many things on TV as humanly possible. We suspect he'll be seen...

One of the reasons I follow the NFL so much more closely than college football is the simple truth that money talks, and in the NFL, no one is hiding from that simple truth. Apparently, however, money talks at a different volume for different people.
According to Chris Mortensen, Titans owner Bud Adams was willing to pay Peyton Manning up to $25 million per year to come to Tennessee...
Tim Tebow and Denver Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas enjoyed a big win Wedenesday night at the ESPY Awards. They won the award for Best Moment for their 80-yard touchdown to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime in the AFC Wild-Card Game.
Both Tebow and Thomas took the stage but Thomas left the speaking all to Tebow. The New York Jets backup quarterback delivered a message...
Toward the latter part of last season, Tim Tebow helped Demaryius Thomas make a name for himself. Though Tebow is oft-criticized for his passing skills — or lackthereof — he’s able to uncork a pretty decent deep ball, and Thomas, a speedster, has an uncanny way of getting open downfield.
During their improbable playoff run, the two connected on several big plays, most notably...

In light of the Colts disasterously stupid decision...
Colts home games could be blacked out on television in the Indianapolis area this season if the team doesn't sell all its tickets.
Chief Operating Officer Pete Ward tells The Indianapolis Star (http://indy.st/MkEQ8g ) the team has 2,000 season tickets still to be sold. If those don't sell, the team will try to sell tickets for individual games.
The NFL recently eased its...
Expectations vary greatly across the league at the start of a new season. Optimism abounds, but what that means is wildly different for every team. For some, an 8-8 season would be a success. Other are just hoping to see solid development from their young core of players. For the Denver Broncos, New England Patriots, and New York Giants, expectations are much, much higher than that...
