    I still can't see Denver taking a flyer on an old guy. They are not ready to win it all now...Arizona has that big tough Irvin type player for him to reach out to. That makes way more sense to me. I say he likes dry heat to the mountains. :D

    SF and Peyton Manning? Oh man that is going to hurt. I guess my beloved Cardinals are going with the most injury prone QB in the history of the NFL, he'll probably throw his neck out looking at the playbook during preseason and hopefully Skelton will continue to get better as the starter. I'm already sick of hoops/ baseball and hockey barely keeps me alive until the return of the gladiators. Hurry up August FFS!

    I like the part about the 10-year drought after hiring an old guy. Good luck getting Payton, Denver!:evil

    I'm willing to abide with the "greatest regular-season QB ever" moniker, especially pre-injury.
    Even so, his contract is for nearly 20% of a team's available cap. Worst case, for the donks, would be for him to pass NEXT year's physical, at which point he then get's another 40 mil guaranteed. If he get's hurt after that, that would be what, nearly a third of Denver's cap tied up in a non-player?

    I'm not sure ANY level of talent is worth that level of risk.

    The new TV contracts are for next year's salary cap so it will take a huge jump. Peyton's contract will become progressively less percentage of the cap each year.

    Also, Manning is getting $18M next year and the salary cap is 120.6. So he is 15% and Denver has plenty to spare this season. The big reason for geting Peyton is ticket sales. Peyton is worth a ton of season tickets at inflated prices. NFL = $$$, first, second, last and everything in between.

    As I understand the contract, Peyton has 1 year guaranteed and if he passes a physical before the start of each season, that season is guaranteed. Also, no signing bonus. That is a pretty darn good contract for the Broncos.
