Peyton Manning Chooses Denver Broncos: Manning Tells Agent To Begin Contract Negotiations

After several visits and meetings to narrow down his long list of suitors, Peyton Manning has made a decision: the four-time MVP quarterback has told his agent, Tom Condon, to begin contract negotiations with the Denver Broncos, according to an ESPN report.

Multiple sources told ESPN that Manning will sign with the Broncos barring an unexpected hiccup in the negotiation process. With Manning committed, the Broncos will now begin to explore the trade market for Tim Tebow, ESPN reports.

An agreement for Manning's contract is not expected to be difficult to reach. Broncos vice president of football operations John Elway began discussing a five-year $95 million contract with Manning and his agent on March 9, during Manning's first visit to Denver.

The Broncos reportedly have few reservations about Manning's health. He took and passed a physical examination with Broncos doctors, and the Broncos were comfortable with the way Manning threw during a workout, despite his admission that he still needs work before his arm is full strength.
