4:40 pm Mike Klis: Broncos are still leaders in clubhouse for Manning.

4:30 pm Brady Quinn will visit the Jets tomorrow, as per Mike Klis.

4:23 pm Mike Klis: For perspective, QB and safety only Bronx MUST needs in FA. Safety they're working on (Browns' Adams). CB Trufant visiting. QB u know about. Bronx also to sign free-agent LB, but waiting for market to settle. Otherwise, draft is the plan


3:26 pm Sorry we missed this, but Joe Mays is or will be visiting the Saints today.

3:14 pm Kevin Acee: WR/PR Eddie Royal taking a physical. Players generally don't leave San Diego after visiting.

3:09 pm Mike Klis: I'm telling you right now, if it comes down to Bud Adams and his lifetime contract and Pat Bowl and whatever it takes, Manning picks Bowlen.

3:07 pm More here on Abraham from La Canfora, who says the wait for Manning has delayed the interest in Abraham too.

3:00 pm John Clayton: Things are going to heat up on WR Eddie Royal this afternoon He's in San Diego today but the Redskins and others still want him.

2:45 pm Mike Klis: Broncos will visit with Seattle CB/S Marcus Trufant. His listed agent: Michael Sullivan, Broncos new cap guy. Discuss

2:42 pm Jason La Canfora: TEN and DEN have interest in pass rusher John Abraham. Manning decision and M Williams delay has caused a lag for him #freeagency

Rumors of the Broncos going after this guy have been an annual ritual

2:16 pm Vic Lombardi: With Meriweather off the market, Mike Adams could leave Denver with a contract today.

1:56 pm Adam Schefter: Former Seahawks Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Trufant is scheduled to visit the Denver Broncos on Friday.

12:19 pm Vic Lombardi: Safety Mike Adams visiting with the Broncos right now. Choosing between Den, Dallas, SF. They may get it done today.

11:44 am Mike Klis: Broncos QB coach Adam Gase attended Kirk Cousins' Pro Day yesterday. Cousins, Weeden, Osweiler on Bronx radar if they don't get Manning.


4:21 pm TitanInsider: Told that #Titans right in thick of Manning pursuit with one other team, believed to be Broncos.

4:17 pm John Clayton: The Titans land former Vikings guard Steve Hutchinson. He was torn between going to Seattle or Tennessee. With Steve Hutchinson going to Tennessee, you have to think the Titans may have a legitimate chance of getting Peyton Manning. The timing or Steve Hutchinson's decision to go to Tennessee makes you think that this has the blessing of Peyton Manning.

3:40 pm The Tennessee state legislature got involved in lobbying Manning to join the Titans.

11:54 am Adam Schefter said on ESPN today he senses that Denver and Tennessee are the Manning finalists, although Bill Polian says a deci$ion could take a while.

11:45 am Alex Marvez updated his earlier story: offering a piece of ownership is possible for the Titans but would have salary cap implications and require league approval.

11:41 am Gary Miller: Have heard whispers returning to Tenn might not be Mannings wifes dream scenario. That could bode well for Broncos.

11:34 am Darren McKee chronicles the Manning Watch in Denver in his latest blog post; he thinks that at this point, it's all about the Benjamins for Peyton.

11:09 am Alex Marvez says NFL rules would allow Tennessee to offer Manning a contract including post-playing career employment (at market value), but offering an ownership stake is not permitted.

10:47 am Mike Florio doesn't see why the blustery talk of Bud Adams offering Peyton Manning a front office position should carry much sway at this point, citing the Titans' already-packed front office and the likelihood that Peyton would have plenty of job offers anyway as his reasons.
