Cardinals Likely Out On Peyton Manning, According to Report

Peyton Manning is a busy guy these days, taking trips to and fro from team to team to figure out his next move. And according to some sources, including the Denver Post, the Arizona Cardinals may be on Peyton's short list but might not have the ability to sign him.

The Cardinals have until 2:00 p.m. MT to decide whether or not they will be ponying up the $7 million roster bonus that is due to Kevin Kolb, who the team would ultimately drop if they went with Peyton. But that means that's $7 million out the door with Kolb, unless they cut him this afternoon before his pay day.

It's not an easy decision, and the Cards are certainly under the gun to figure this out. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Broncos flew to Durham, NC to see Peyton today and that a workout was held between them. That doesn't necessarily put them in the driver's sear though, according to Schefter.

The Miami Dolphins are said to be out too, leaving only the Tennessee Titans and Denver Broncos as teams that Peyton could be playing for next season. But if Titans owner Bud Adams is going to put up 'lifetime contracts' as his offer, few teams could be trying to speak with Manning, because there likely isn't another owner willing to do such a thing.
