A few interesting tidbits here:

According to Mike Klis, the team has not heard from Peyton Manning since Friday's van chase and workout. Klis says Tim Tebow will be Denver's starting QB, potentially backed up by Josh Johnson or Dennis Dixon, if Manning chooses to sign elsewhere. Jeff Legwold says the Broncos are fine with waiting for Peyton to make his decision (not that they have a choice).
Peter King also thinks Hasselbeck could go to San Francisco, but he doesn't want to guess where Manning is going, because he says it's true that nobody really knows. Apparently King hasn't spoken to any Denver fans, because he thinks he's the only person who would vouch for the Broncos keeping Tebow if they sign Manning, and he says he wouldn't give up Timmy for anything less than a third-rounder if he were them. PK acknowledges Denver was the prohibitive favorite to sign Peyton a week ago, but he doesn't see it as a bad thing for them that the QB hasn't yet announced a decision.

King calls this a factoid, but in Broncosland it reads like something much bigger:
How much did Brady Quinn want out of the Denver quarterback-go-round? So much, I hear, that he turned down an offer of $2 million from the Broncos and accepted a one-year, $1.5-million deal in Kansas City.
Score it Tebowmania 3, Kyle Orton 0, Matt Flynn 0, Brady Quinn 0. Who's next?
