12 NFL teams show interest in 4 time NFL MVP Peyton Manning as he looks for new home

Now that four-time NFL MVP quarterback Peyton Manning is officially a free agent and no longer affiliated with the Indianapolis Colts, teams all over the league are showing strong interest in signing the future Hall of Famer. The favorites to land Manning have already been named even before he left the Colts, but it appears that many more will get in the running to bring in the franchise quarterback.

The Seattle Seahawks, Miami Dolphins, Arizona Cardinals, Washington Redskins, Kansas City Chiefs, Denver Broncos and the New York Jets have already reached out to the perennial Pro Bowler with interest in signing the quarterback. Most of these teams have already been linked as a possible destination for Manning, but the Broncos are a bit of surprise considering their success with Tim Tebow last season.

Unfortunately, the NFC teams on the list like the Seahawks, Cardinals and Redskins might already be out of the running. Apparently, Manning wants to continue playing in the AFC Conference which definitely gives the edge to teams like the Jets, Dolphins, Chiefs and Broncos.

Peyton Manning has yet to say whether or not any team is a frontrunner for his services or which team he would like to play for next season, but he intends on finding a new team within a week. That statement makes things very interesting from here on out as all teams in the running will be doing everything within their power to lure in one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history.

Personally, I believe the New York Jets would be an ideal fit for the veteran quarterback. Mark Sanchez may still be the future of the franchise, but bringing in a proven veteran like Manning would improve this offense considerably. Not only would the offense be dominant, but the defense is already one of the best in the league and something that Manning might consider before signing.
