After more than six hours of meeting with Arizona’s coaching staff and executives Sunday, Peyton Manning has left the Cardinals facility.

According to NFL Network’s Michelle Beisner, on his way out as he was being driven by coach Ken Whisenhunt in a white SUV, Manning smiled and waved to the Arizona fans in attendance.

Where he goes next is anybody’s guess, though his next spot probably was the airport. It’s assumed he’ll visit the Dolphins next, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet. Also, you have to wonder if Manning has any interest in being courted by Tennessee owner Bud Adams.

All of it led Arizona Republic beat writer Kent Somers to write, “I can firmly say Manning will either sign with Arizona or another team.”

UPDATE (8:52 p.m. ET): The Denver Post has some interesting analysis after Manning's weekend out West.

-Though the Chiefs and the Seahawks wanted Manning to visit, he declined those overtures. So, it appears neither of those squads will land him.

-According to Mike Klis, Manning didn't talk money with the Cardinals or the Broncos. Instead, he focused on football. And considering his agent, Tom Condon, wasn't along on either trip, that makes sense.

-Manning was "impressed" with the Broncos, and it's still unclear whether he'll visit the Dolphins.
