I think it’s now definitely safe to say Peyton Manning won’t be a Redskin

Per Mike Klis and Woody Paige of The Denver Post, Peyton Manning is visiting Denver today, and plans to follow up that visit with trips to Arizona, and then Miami.

Manning, who turns 36 on March 24, has been cleared to throw by his neck specialist, Dr. Robert Watkins. One NFL source said Manning will also visit the Arizona Cardinals and Miami Dolphins after visiting with the Broncos. A source said Manning would like to make a decision by Tuesday, the first day of free agency.

So let’s see… Today is Friday… He wants to sign by Tuesday… He’ll be in Denver today, then Arizona, then Miami… Probably a city each day, with some soul-searching and decision time on the 4th… Oh, and he loses an hour because of Daylight Savings this weekend!… Yeah, probably doesn’t leave enough time for a full visit to D.C.

Here’s Peyton’s travel itinerary (Disclaimer: This might not be 100% accurate):

The 2012 Eagles, Cowboys, and Giants celebrate.  The 2013 and beyond Eagles, Cowboys, and Giants fear that the Skins get RG3 an he turns out to be awesome.  The Rams pray that Manning signs with Denver.  I thank the Lord that I don’t have to cover Peyton Manning anymore after Tuesday.

    WANTS. He WANTS to sign by Tuesday. That doesn’t mean he MUST sign by Tuesday. There’s still a chance for the Redskins to, yet again, waste a lot of money on an old, injured free agent superstar.

    1. True, it doesn’t mean he has to sign by Tuesday, but if he were to visit/consider a 4th team (whoever that may be), he’d probably give himself a bigger window to do so from the get-go.

      Peyton and his father had a big influence in Eli not wanting to play for the Chargers, mostly becuase Peyton thought Chargers mangament was terrible and would screw his little brothers career up. I highly doubt he looks at Dan Synder and company as a viable option for his career now. The Skins would have to sell him hard on why he should come there.

        Money. Great, glorious bucketfuls of money. That said, they could sign Nicks from NOLA, Jackson from SD and draft the best OL available at #6 and that’s got the makings of a pretty formidable offense. They still have to replace Landry (eh) and Fletcher (he’s old), but it’s not unthinkable. Of course, Snyder would have to be a lot smarter than he is to pull that off.

    With the Rams rumored to be asking for three First Round picks for the second spot, I’m not really that worried about the Redskins yet.
