UPDATE 3/21: Jason La Canfora of is reporting that the Jets have traded their 4th and 6th round draft picks to the Broncos for Tim Tebow and their 7th round draft pick.


3/19: Peyton Manning to Broncos

Chris Mortensen of ESPN is reporting that Peyton Manning will sign with the Broncos. Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the Broncos will attempt to trade Tim Tebow. He reports Peyton Manning's contract is 5 years, $96 million dollars.

After the Broncos' season ended 45-10 at the hands of the New England Patriots two months ago, we thought we had all of the questions and answers mapped out.

We thought Tim Tebow would for sure enter the 2012 season as the starting quarterback of the Broncos, with Denver likely signing a veteran quarterback as a free agent and/or a rookie mid-round pick to at least push Tebow as the starter under center.

Oh, how things change.

Just a week ago, when Peyton Manning was officially released after 14 years spent with the Indianapolis Colts, the Broncos surprisingly emerged as one of the dozen teams that expressed interest in Manning's services.

Now let's be honest. Last Tuesday, when Manning was released, who actually expected the Broncos to emerge just a week later as the most likely destination for the four-time MVP?

Somehow, someway, the Broncos have managed to become the most likely destination for the biggest free agent on the market.

That's life in the NFL.

Just when you think you have things mapped out, you have the potential of striking gold with a future hall-of-famer.

Along with Peyton Manning/the quarterback situation, here are several of the Broncos' most pressing issues when it pertains to free agency.
