On NFL Network this morning, Ian Rapoport reported that Peyton Manning will not be getting a physical today for the Denver Broncos.
What does this mean?
Nothing. Everything. It could mean both parties have already either agreed to part ways with Manning being released on Monday or it means both parties have agreed that Manning is about to announce his retirement.
Or it means nothing. In fact, it probably does mean nothing, but its Peyton freaking Manning so it means something to somebody.
According to Manning's contract, he only has to let the Broncos he is available for a physical. He doesn't actually have to get one by March 4th.
Note on Peyton Manning's looming physical on Fri: Per his contract, he has to communicate to DEN he's available for it, not actually take it— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 3, 2016
So it probably does mean nothing.
Let the Manning retirement watch continue...
I hope the @Broncos and Peyton Manning's breakup doesn't turn out like last night's #GOPDebate ....— Tim Lynch (@TimLynch1978) March 4, 2016
