DENVER (AP) -- ESPN is reporting that Peyton Manning is negotiating to join the Denver Broncos.

Citing anonymous sources Monday, ESPN said that the four-time MVP has instructed agent Tom Condon to negotiate to complete a deal with Denver. Manning became a free agent when the Indianapolis Colts released him March 7 after the quarterback missed all of last season because of multiple neck surgeries.

The addition of Manning could well lead to the trade of Tim Tebow, who energized the Broncos in leading them to the playoffs last season despite his uneven play.

The San Francisco 49ers and the Tennessee Titans have been the other teams considered finalists in the race to sign Manning.

    Hey An Amigo.. Unless your Vance, Mark or Ricky, then I can't even begin to understand where you are coming from. It's only a game but Denver doesn't need Manning

    High risk, high reward, rolling of the dice by John Elway. I like it!

    So you get Manning for 2-3 years...just when Tebow would be on top. Hmmm that makes sense. Nice one. I really thought the Broncos had gotten it together. I give up on them.

    I think they'll go 8 and 8. 2 loses to San Diego, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Houston, N.E., possibly Carolina because Ron Rivera has owned Manning the past 2 of 3 times they've met, and New Orleans is 50/50 whether they have their full defense playing that day due to bounty punishment. hahaha

    cry me a river for Tebow. Boo hoo to the guy who can't throw the ball.

    If the Broncos sign Peyton Manning I am through watching them. We need a long term solution, and that is Tim Tebow!

      betcha change your tunr on that when you see the footballs actually getting to the recievers more that 50 percent of the time!!! Tebow was never the solution for Denver. He will make a great wildcat qb somewhere else. 5 years is a good time to get a good qb out of the draft and let him learn under one of the best qb's to ever play the game. Tebow was not the one.

    I really didnt think Manning was that stupid! If he takes any hits like Tebow, he wont last long. The donkeys-- what a joke!
