Rich Cimini is reporting the Seattle Seahwaks are prepared to offer Manning a large contract in hopes of luring him to Seattle. Its unknown if Manning has any interest in playing for Seattle and Pete Carroll, but that isn’t stopping them from trying.
NFL Network reporter Jason La Canfora believes that Manning will receive the most interest from Miami and Washington, and that Arizona, Seattle, Kansas City, and the New York Jets may also get involved.
ESPN NFL insider John Clay also speculated that Washington and Miami were the favorites to land Manning.
Its also worth noting the San Francisco 49ers aren’t close to re-signing free agent QB Alex Smith. Don’t rule out the 49ers until they lock up Smith, if they decide that’s the direction they want to go.
I believe the Redskins are prepared to trade up and draft Robert Griffin III, so they will ultimately pass on Manning, leaving the future hall-of-famer to sign with the Miami Dolphins.
