The Peyton Manning Saga
Since Peyton Manning’s release this past Wednesday there have been many different speculations on where the veteran QB will end up. Soon after Manning’s release he traveled to Miami to speak to Miami Dolphin’s owners. This brought more heat onto Miami and what they could do to bring in Manning. Miami’s current starting quarterback is Chad Henne and by bringing in Manning it would all but nail the coffin in Henne’s fate as starting QB.
After his visit to Miami he went on to visit John Elway and the Denver Broncos. This immediately becomes interesting seeing as how Tim Tebow is currently the starting quarterback for the Broncos. Tebow brought the Broncos back to its glory for a short stint in the playoffs. But during the season it was clear that Elway was not too fond of Tebow. If Manning was to go to the Broncos, the team would have to figure out what to do with Tebow. Would they keep him as a backup? Or let him go? It’s a decision that would need to be made if the Bronco’s were to acquire Manning.
Manning’s last stop as of today is Phoenix, AZ to visit the Arizona Cardinals who’ve been lacking a great QB since the retirement of Kurt Warner. The Cards still have a shining star in wide receiver, Larry Fitzgerald who is in desperate need of having a star QB back in Arizona. In a recent interview with Fitzgerald, he says playing in Arizona would be similar to Indianapolis because of the dome style atmosphere. In my opinion, having Manning in Arizona would be the better fit because there are already weapons surrounding him like Fitzgerald and running back Bennie Wells. But as of now there is still no deal yet so the saga will continue of where exactly Manning would call home.
