According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, quarterback Peyton Manning has agreed to a five-year $96 million deal with the Denver Broncos.

Manning will be officially introduced a member of the Broncos at 3pm EST.

Peyton Manning is a Bronco.
I am not surprised by this. I predicted it the minute it was announced that Jim Irsay was going to cut him loose. For five years and $96 million, I would be a Bronco too. Actually, I would have signed for $95 million, but Manning said it wasn’t the money.

Any lasting dreams of having Matt Flynn come to the Browns should have been dashed days ago. But just in case you had a little bit of hope left, today you can let it go completely.
Adam Schefter reports that Matt Flynn has agreed to a 3-year deal for $26 million with $10 million guaranteed.
So stop wondering if Matt Flynn is “the answer” for the Browns. If he is a good quarterback...
It was quite a day for those actively tracking the Tim Tebow trade chatter as the Broncos and interested teams were quick on the draw to engage in trade talks for quarterback. As the day unfolded though, the simple headline of "Tebow to The Jets", which was reported early in the morning, became murkier as there was an odd contract irregularity that the Jets were balking...
