Lombardi: Broncos 95% confident Manning coming to Denver

Per the master, Vic Lombardi:

Just heard from my peoples (sic). Broncos now 95% confident he'll sign with Denver. Their number, not mine...Broncos were contacted by manning TONIGHT

The Broncos wouldn't use this kind of language (would they?) knowing Lombardi is about to send this news out to the world.  The other 5%?  Let's call it the margin of error.  This is all but done, Bronco Country--according to someone.

UPDATE: Lindsay Jones and Michelle Beisner are throwing some lukewarm water on Vic's story.  Not sure what to make of the situation, but Lombardi has been all over this story from the beginning.  Someone inside Dove Valley believes the Broncos got them a HOF QB not named Elway.  The cook perhaps?

DOUBLE TROUBLE UPDATE:  Darren McKee, Andrew Mason, and Chris Mortensen (John Clayton's brother) himself are all saying the Broncos had no contact with Peyton Manning today.  From Mort:

Broncos official wants it known: Manning didn't call team today or tonight & inform they're 95% fave. Manning source already refuted to me

Okay, who in the hell hacked Vic Lombardi's twitter account in the last hour?  

TOTALLY TUBULAR TRIPLE UPDATE: Lombardi appears to be crumbling under the avalanche: 

Learning how powerful Twitter really is. Not trying to cause an uproar. Is this really life or death? Let's sit back and wait.

I'd hate to be Vic if the Broncos don't get Manning at this point because no, it really isn't life or death.  It's football.

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.

Agree, disagree, just like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter so I can quit my day job.
