At approximately noon on March 19, 2012, Peyton Manning, the four-time MVP quarterback who was recently cut from the Colts, informed the Broncos former great quarterback John Elway that he will sign with the Broncos. No contract has officially been signed, however, Manning told his agent, Tom Condon, to get a deal done so that he could join the Broncos and play at Mile High Stadium. In 2011 the Denver Broncos made the playoffs and Tim Tebow was given majority of the credit for getting the Denver Broncos into the post-season. However, adding a former Super Bowl MVP, and one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game, Tim Tebow will likely be pawned off to the highest bidder. The Broncos beat out the Tennessee Titans and San Francisco 49ers for the services of Peyton Manning, only several days after Manning announced he had narrowed down his choices to those two teams, and the Broncos.
A lot has been said about Manning being enamored with John Elway and having the possibility of finishing his legacy in the same city where John Elway built and finished his legacy. Due to Peyton Manning’s window of being an elite quarterback closing on him and with more great years behind him than in front, Manning has a lot to do in order to become an all-time great in the city of Denver like the man who convinced him to come. Do you think Peyton Manning can become a Denver Bronco legend without a Super Bowl, or is that something that he must bring to the city of Denver for this signing to be successful?
