Peyton Manning Down To Broncos, Cardinals?

According to multiple sources - and that's all we can go on right now - Peyton Manning will likely choose between the two teams he has visited so far - the Denver Broncos and Arizona Cardinals, according to ESPN.com.

Manning spent most of Friday and Saturday in Denver, taking time to tour the Broncos' football facility with owner Pat Bowlen, VP John Elway and head coach John Fox on Friday and enjoyed dinner with them - along with former teammate Brandon Stokley Friday night. Though Manning stayed in Colorado until Saturday evening, the team reportedly had no meetings with Manning, though the two sides were reportedly in contact throughout the day.

Manning left for Arizona just after 6:00pm MT, where he will spend Sunday getting the same tour of the Cardinals facilities, meeting with head coach Ken Whisenhunt and team owner Michael Bidwell. After that. no one but Manning knows.

The Miami Dolphins want to meet with Manning as well, but there is growing pessimism that Manning simply doesn't want to play for the Dolphins, not as much as the Broncos or Cardinals. The Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs would like to get in on Manning as well, but so far nothing is scheduled.

According to the ESPN report, a source close to Manning feels the Broncos have the edge - at least right now. That could change, of course, but Manning's solid relationship with John Elway, along with the fact The Broncos play in the AFC, seem to be huge pluses. Manning reportedly would prefer to stay in the AFC, and all things considered the AFC West has to be more attractive to Manning than the East, where Tom Brady and the Patriots are waiting twice a year.

If weather is a factor, the Broncos could have the advantage as well. Miami is obviously beautiful, but games in New England, Buffalo and New York - along with other cold-weather cities - could be a deterrent. Think about it, when push comes to shove, how many Broncos games are really affected by the weather?
