Peter King of Sports Illustrated goes through the list of possible teams in the running to secure quarterback Peyton Manning in free agency under the likely scenario that Indianapolis releases him March 8, along with the elite quarterback being able to prove that he’s healthy.
King lists Miami, the N.Y. Jets, Seattle, Arizona and Kansas City as possible destinations.
Here’s what King says about Seattle: “The injury-prone Sidney Rice makes this a tough call. But the Seahawks certainly have the cash to make this happen, and it’s exceedingly logical to think they’d be interested in both. With Rice and Mike Williams the current projected starters, you’d think Pete Carroll would use Williams and Golden Tate as swing players and injury insurance, with the heady Doug Baldwin the kind of slot receiver Manning could use as his new Brandon Stokley.”
