Peyton Manning has been visiting with different teams and he reportedly has narrowed his list of potential suitors. According to The Denver Post, the four finalists for Peyton Manning’s services are the Broncos, Titans, Cardinals, and Dolphins. The Post says the Broncos and Titans are in his top two.

One of the selling points for the Broncos is that coach John Fox reportedly will allow Peyton Manning to create the offense. Manning also reportedly believes Denver will be a good place for his family. He may be concerned that Denver is a cold weather city given that he played his career in a dome.

Peyton has met with three teams in the past week and may meet with Tennessee Wednesday to make that four.

I’m honestly very surprised with his list. If I were Peyton, I would have focused on picking a team that had a really good defense to become closer to winning a Super Bowl. Denver played good defense last season, but none of the other three teams have standout defenses. Signing with San Francisco, Houston, or the Jets would have had positioned him closer to winning another ring. Signing with any of those four teams will likely make him a playoff contender, not Super Bowl contender.
