Peyton Manning ended his brief but high-profile free agency Monday by choosing the Denver Broncos over other finalists San Francisco and Tennessee. Manning and the Broncos are reportedly working on a five-year deal worth around $90 million to $95 million.
According to ESPN, they offered lengthy visits to the facility. They had friendly meals. On demand they scrambled the team jet for a private workout, physical and further opportunity to preach the virtues of a Rocky Mountain autumn.
Denver did everything it could to sell Peyton Manning on what it could do for him.
Now Manning needs to prove that the Broncos’ work and faith were worth it.
