Can they afford him or do they have to cut Schaub in order to do so, and if they do that and it turns out Peyton can't play, they're screwed.
I think Yates showed enough promise that it would be worth the risk. I'd cut Schaub.

If it did somehow come down to that, I think the Texans would make a trade instead of just cutting him. They could end up with a high draft pick.

It's not going to happen, but I think Peyton in Denver would be great. I have to think the biggest problem with that is Tebowmania - a move like this could split the fan base for a while. But Manning, even not 100% of what he used to be, could seriously upgrade tha offense immiedately. And Tebow might get exactly the mentor he needs to actually have a chance at being the future of this team.

True, although I don't think they would get too much for him with no leverage.

Denver should look into it, but it probably won't happen.

if you bring in another kyle orton type to start over tebus, the fan base will revolt.

if you bring in peyton manning, the fan base will get over it.

i'm not... kolb hasn't show an ability to stay on the field. they have skelton, but he's not ready. they play indoors and have larry fitzgerald. frankly i think peyton should go there.

I never looked too closely at that contract, but I figured they paid Kolb a decent amount and might not be in the biggest hurry to pay even more for another question mark.

They can get rid of Kolb after next season based on the way his contract is structured. But they would probably need Peyton to be flexible with the structuring of the first year of his deal to make the finances work.

Kolb is owed $7 million if on the roster March 17, so AZ would cut him if they got Manning.

Not a whole lot of time to work with. If they go all in on Manning and cut Kolb, it will probably take a pretty convincing workout from Manning.

I think it will be either:

Miami
Arizona
Houston


I wonder when Peyton will let us know.

I think he said something about making a decision within a week or so. Maybe that means he knows where he wants to go.

if the Raiders indeed cut Wimbley, i want the Packers to sign him and then draft a DL 1st round. that would be my perfect offseason.

I have a feeling that the Pack will trade up or down. I don't want USC's Perry to fall on their laps. That just looks like trouble.

I think he wants it done before the free agency period begins.

Seattle should have put a Kitten Roof on Qwest Field, that'd be the perfect spot for Pey-Pey if they had one.
