1:25 MST: Mike Klis corrects his proposed contract numbers. It’s now a lot higher than initially stated:
My previously reported contract parameters for P. Manning were too low. Broncos, Titans, 49ers working off his old five-year, $90 mil deal

11:50MST Mike Klis of the Denver Post has just released financial numbers for the contract the Broncos are offering Manning today. This is all according to his source.
Interesting round of updates. 10:35 MST. See the following tweets. There is “circumstantial evidence” according Kent Sommers of the AZ Republic that the Cards have been informed they are out of the running for Manning. Now this new report from Steve O’Reilly from the Skinny Post is saying Denver will try to sign Mike Wallace if they can secure Manning giving him another target. Broncotalk’s Ian Henson made the case for Wallace in Denver here. The rumor mill just keeps churning.
Hearing that Denver will sign Mike Wallace if they land Peyton Manning. Have to wait and see but would be incredible moves for Denver. — Steven O’Reilly (@SteveOReilly) March 16, 2012
Don’t get too excited just yet, NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi just threw this out on twitter:
Manning will throw for the Titans as well, no date has been set for that workout — Michael Lombardi (@michaelombardi) March 16, 2012

ESPN has learned Peyton Manning is working out for the Broncos today, but he does not make them the leader. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 16, 2012
Early this morning on the Evans and Klatt show at Sports Radio 104.3 a rumor came up that the Denver front office along with John Fox was seen celebrating long into the night at Shanahan’s Steakhouse. This was coming from 104.3’s “source” at Shanahan’s, one can only assume that it was an employee. They also stated a quote from John Fox that “Tomorrow will be a good day.” Skip ahead a few hours and it is now being reported that Pat Bowlen’s private jet is being prepared to leave at 8:30 mountain from the Centennial airport and is headed for Raleigh-Durham in North Carolina. (Manning’s been working out at Duke University) Then comes Vic Lombardi’s tweet that he is confirming that Elway is scheduled to be on board the flight. Michelle Beisner is stating that it’s to watch Manning work out. Stay tuned Bronco fans, we’ll keep you posted.
