The waiting game may finally end this evening.
According to NFL Network, free agent quarterback Peyton Manning may sign with a team — whichever team that may be — by this evening, per KMGH‘s Arran Andersen. The network is also reporting that Manning’s decision is holding up Mario Williams from joining the Broncos, per SFS-S‘s Omar Kelly.
Whether those two reports are true or not remains to be seen, but BT did learn a week ago that the Broncos would pursue both Manning and Williams. Per reports, Manning is visiting the Titans today and Williams has met with the Bills, so it appears that Denver’s chances of landing both players (if either) are slim.
If Manning does sign with Denver, former Broncos quarterback Frank Tripucka would be willing to let his #18 jersey come out of retirement. “It’s been retired for 50 years,” Tripucka told The Denver Post. “That’s long enough.”
Like the rest of the NFL, we’re all waiting on Peyton now.
