Mike Freeman’s source is not Gary Miller’s source

Manning and Tebow on same team?

Perhaps the most intriguing team in pursuit of Peyton Manning are the Denver Broncos. And there is a pursuit. A fairly hot one, according to a person familiar with the situation. There is also reciprocal interest from Manning.

That doesn’t mean this will happen and the odds of Manning joining the Broncos, while possible, are slim.

I’m told Manning would be uncomfortable with Tebow being on the roster but also doesn’t want to be seen as the guy who pushed Tebow out of Denver. The Broncos, I’m told, also don’t want to trade Tebow even if Manning joins the team. The Broncos would have to come to some sort of resolution of these two things and it might just be too messy for a resolution to be reached.

Freeman's source says the Broncos wouldn't want to trade Tebow. Miller says the opposite. One of them is right, and if it's Miller, then Freeman's source is likely trying to maintain Tebow's trade value for Denver.

The second reason Freeman cites as a hindrance to a Denver/Manning union is that whole representation thing Woody Paige has been harping on. Still not buying it. If John Elway and Peyton Manning decide they want this to happen, Tom Condon and Jimmy Sexton are not about to be the prohibiting factor.
