Peter King thinks there’s an 85% chance that Peyton Manning returns to Denver

Welcome to the Combine

I think the odds of Peyton Manning returning to the Broncos increased from 65 percent to 85 percent the other day, when Manning met with GM John Elway and, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, told Elway he wants to play in 2015…I think the Broncos definitely want Manning back for 2015. Take that to the bank. John Elway knows Denver’s best chance to go deep in the playoffs in 2015 is with Manning at quarterback. Elway and the Broncos might quietly rattle some sabers about lowering Manning’s salary in 2015.

So, what does the other 15% account for? Cutting Peyton over a couple or few million bucks? Trading him for a draft pick or two?
