Peyton Manning continues to narrow his choices and as expected the Denver Broncos and Tennessee Titans have emerged as the favorites to sign him but there is an interesting twist developing.
A person close to Manning confirms a story first reported by ESPN that a Denver contingent will watch Manning work out. Yet the source said the Titans are still heavily in the mix.
A Dolphins official confirmed that the team has been informed they have been eliminated from contention. Arizona is all but eliminated from the mix as well but it's unclear if Manning or his camp have informed the Cardinals they are no longer contenders.
Here's the twist. A source stated that there are at least two teams ready to jump into the fray and the Manning camp has spoken to them.
To repeat: there may indeed be other teams who could sneak into the fray at the last minute and throw this entire process for a loop.
How much of this is Manning camp posturing is unclear. I also don't know which teams are circling but I do believe this to be true.
In the end, the Broncos remain the favorite, because of John Elway's persuasive powers. But there very well could be other teams that might make a last minute play.
