I would think teams are going to want to see him throw and have their doctors check him out. Plus I could see him wanting to take some time to make a decision.

I still think he's going to retire. But if he plays again, I think it's the Cards.

I think Peyton Manning will be a late sign in free agency; which will put a lot more pressure on the Rams to get a deal down for the #2 trade.

Tough seeing these guys part ways. A lot of emotion there.

I really think he'll be a late FA signing, as someone else said. I think this is just way too emotional for him to be making that sort of decision right now.

Would be interesting if both Manning and Reggie Wayne end up in 'Zona.

This emotional presser really makes me want to see him come back and have a phenomenal season.

Smoot do you have a feeling of what our price limit is on a Manning contract? Or asked differently, why wouldn't we be willing to outspend other teams?

Are you asking if I have a feeling of how much we're going to offer him?

Basically, I was saying that Manning is an aging veteran who is not a long term solution. He'd be a Redskin maybe until Shanahan's contract is up. Drafting RG3 would be much better. Because of the risk involved with Manning, GM Bruce Allen and head coach Mike Shanahan should pass on him. If they do sign him, then they should draft a Tannehill, Weeden, or Foles to learn from Manning and develop. Since Grossman doesn't have a contract and Crompton and Beck does, I'd favor Crompton backing up Manning since Beck isn't a quality back up let alone a quality starter. I hope I'm understood now.
