Default Broncos in preliminary talks with Tom Condon

Like several other teams involved in the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, the Broncos have been in discussions today with agent Tom Condon.

Talks are no more than preliminary, though, because Manning has not yet decided where he will finish his career and wants to take today to rest, work out and clear his mind, according to two NFL sources.

Somebody check with houghtam, this should have been taken care of via text message before Peyton Manning's visit...

Stokely tossed the ball with PM:

"People who say the Broncos are crazy for not watching his balls fly, or what are they doing? those people are dead wrong," Stokley said. "I'll put whatever reputation I have on the line behind that guy right now. He looks great."

Let's get this done before tomorrow, so that we can attract some talent in free agency!

Why are people acting like Bowlen is going to break the bank all of a sudden? I thought he was broke?

I do not think PM will make any decisions before Friday at the earliest. He is in no hurry to do so.

Did you guys read the article? Here's the key take away:

Quote:
The Broncos are one of six teams who are considered alive in the pursuit of Manning. The others are Miami, Arizona, San Francisco, Tennessee and — surprise! — the Houston Texans.
49ers might be just bargaining down Alex Smith - but considering how close to the Super Bowl they were, not unthinkable they'd jump that ship and let Manning run the offense for a couple years.

Houston: how much would Kubes need to adjust the offense for Manning? Again, on the verge of the Super Bowl, in a dome, get to destroy the Luck Colts twice a year. That who I want if I'm Peyton

IF this is true.....then I am 100% on board with this. My biggest fear is that we'd be investing in a guy that is NOT fully healthy.

NFL owner version of broke and everyday person version of broke are 2 completely different things.

NFL owner broke is like, "damn, i can't afford the 250 million to revamp my stadium right now."

ordinary person broke is like, "oh my god, the county sheriffs are forcibly removing my family and i from our house."

Boy, you nuthuggers are desperately flinging feces against the wall, hoping something will stick.

Amazing how this team according to you clowns has stupid coaches....even stupider FO...broke owner...is void of any talent, and that's why Manning should look elsewhere to continue his career...but Tebow would have great success with this same suck ass team....go figure

if Peyton were some prima donna player who wanted the spotlight, i'd agree with you, but since he isn't, i bet wednesday at the latest, and more than likely 2pm tomorrow so the team he chooses know what way to go with free agency.

especially since wisenhunt needs to know by thursday due to a bonus due to kolb if he is still on the roster.

That was my point all along.. how is Manning going to function if the cupboards are bare? To be a successful pocket QB you need all the elements..

If Bowlen has the money then why didn't Tebow get jack to work with last season? Break the bank on him and see how he does.. he could have gotten past the Pats if he had some receivers and better runners.. better line..

better receivers don't mean jack if he is only allowed to throw the ball 10 times a game because he is a terrible passer.

The Broncos will not lose out on Manning due to money issues, if that's what you're wondering. They have the best cap situation of any of the suitors, and its been reported that Bowlen will do whatever it takes from a monetary standpoint.

Terrible passers don't drop 3 bills on the Steelers in the playoffs.. especially with no receivers or runners...

They do when they are playing cover zero.

I like Tim and hope he can improve, but that game is an anomoly because he'll never see that kind of D again.
