Peyton’s Place: Manning Agrees to Join Broncos

Former Indianapolis Colts superstar Peyton Manning is changing his stripes for the first time in his career, with ESPN reporting that Manning has agreed to sign with the Denver Broncos.

The move will send shock waves throughout the AFC. Denver now becomes a favorite in the AFC West, and will certainly be a trendy Super Bowl pick come preseason.

Monday’s news also puts an end to the Manning circus that has been ongoing the past few months. The future Hall-of-Fame QB had rumored interest in Arizona, Miami, Tennessee, before eventually signing with Denver.

Manning’s presence also presents an interesting dilemma for Broncos QB Tim Tebow and Vice President of Football Operations John Elway. Elway has never truly committed to Tebow being the face of the franchise, but Tebow’s 7-4 record in 2011 and 29-23 overtime Wildcard victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers (Denver’s first playoff appearance and victory since 2005) have given him unlimited fan support and, more importantly to Elway, trade value.

Ironically, the Patriots will host both the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos at Gillette Stadium during the 2012 campaign.
