What Peyton Manning Looks Like in His Suitors' NFL Uniforms
Millions of NFL fans stuck with leaderless teams want No. 18 on their side, and newspapers and websites across the country are doing their best to deliver. From D.C. to Denver, they’re offering readers a glimpse of what the former king of Indianapolis would look like wearing different team’s uniform.
In short, they’re playing with your head.
Will he wind up a ’Fin or a ’Skin? In the Desert or the Meadowlands? Who knows for sure. But through the magic of technology you don’t have to wait and see what it’ll look like.
1. Miami Dolphins: Turquoise and Orange
Miami is touted as the most likely choice for Manning to end up, especially by gamblers. He has a house in Florida and the Dolphins have a talented wide receiver duo with Brandon Marshall and Davone Bess.
2. Washington Redskins: Burgundy and Gold
Kudos to the Washington Post Express for a great image, but Peyton doesn’t make much sense on a team so weak in the receiver realm.
Also, have people already forgotten about the Donovan McNabb experiment?
3. New York Jets: Hunter Green and White
4. Kansas City Chiefs: Red and Gold
This Payton rendition comes courtesy of the SB Nation website Arrowhead Pride. Nice work, guys.
But is it realistic?
“That’s as close as Peyton will come to being a Chief. The PhotoShop world. Not the real world,” one fan commented.
5. Arizona Cardinals: Cardinal and White
6. Denver Broncos: Navy and Orange
Just in case Tim Tebow doesn’t work out, the Denver Broncos are considering taking a more proven QB.
One problem: No. 18 is retired at Sports Authority Field. It belonged to quarterback Frank Tripucka.
Broncotalk.net imagines Manning as a Bronco—and apparently with the clout to un-retire Tripucka’s jersey number.
