Manning makes a decision

Since his release from the Indianapolis Colts, television crews and reporters have followed former Tennessee Volunteer quarterback Peyton Manning everywhere to get a sense of where the free agent may sign. The waiting game and question marks came to a halt on Monday.

Following intense courting from numerous NFL franchises, Peyton Manning has opened contract negotiations to become the next quarterback of the Denver Broncos, NFL senior writer Jay Glazer has confirmed.

The other finalists in the bidding were Tennessee and San Francisco. Manning threw for the Broncos, San Francisco 49ers and Tennessee Titans in private workouts last week to show where he stands in his recovery from a series of neck surgeries. Before he traveled to meet with the Titans and Arizona Cardinals, the Broncos hosted the first of Manning's three free-agent visits. Manning also met with members of the 49ers and Miami Dolphins.
