The first rumors concerning Peyton Manning, reported by Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter of ESPN, were that the Arizona Cardinals and the Denver Broncos were the front-runners to sign the future Hall of Fame quarterback. According to the report, they were the only two teams that Manning had met with so far.
However, Mortensen reported yesterday afternoon that Manning was going to be meeting with the Miami Dolphins and Tennessee Titans sometime this week.
So what does this all mean?
Manning is clearly looking for the team he feels will give him the best opportunity to win right now, and he isn't sure which team that is quite yet.
Don't expect Manning to sign today. Instead, look for his courtship to be dragged out through the weekend and possibly late into the month.
Ultimately, I believe that Manning will like what Arizona has to offer him, namely Larry Fitzgerald. I believe he will pull a Kurt Warner and get the Cardinals back to the Super Bowl.
