So, who is left?
As unlikely as some of these destinations may be (he's not going to the Jets), these following teams could be interested in Peyton.
Miami: Personally, I don't see it happening, but Miami is supposedly the favorite for Manning.
Arizona: Arizona has lacked a good QB since Kurt Warner left. A good QB could be the missing link.
Washington: Rex Grossman is not the Redskins' quarterback.
Seattle: Tarvaris Jackson? Nope.
Minnesota: Christian Ponder could use some time to develop.
Houston: Lack of QB was the demise of the Texans. Maybe Matt Schaub is hurt worse than we think.
Jacksonville: Blaine Gabbert isn't going to produce. Sorry.
New York Jets: As wrong as they may be, the Jets are interested. Sorry, Mark Sanchez.
Cleveland: Colt McCoy is the future, but Manning could be the now.
Denver: Tim Tebow is still the future, but Manning is the only guy they could bring in to give Tebow time without creating an absolute frenzy. Also, Tebow could benefit from Manning's knowledge.
Kansas City: Matt Cassel isn't consistent enough. Don't count the Chiefs out.
I really don't see Manning going to the NFC or AFC East. He'll likely end up somewhere where he can win, and probably in a dome or warm weather.
