Peyton Manning's Free Agency Decision Expected Within A Week

The Peyton Manning decision is expected sometime in the next week. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Manning will be talking with free agent suitors and is expected to make his decision within a week or so. Free agency opens on March 13 but because Manning was released by the Indianapolis Colts Wednesday, he is free to sign with any team right now.

There are a number of teams who have reportedly reached out to Manning's camp, including the Arizona Cardinals, New York Jets, Denver Broncos, Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs. The Miami Dolphins and Washington Redskins are also expected to show interest in Manning.

Manning reportedly prefers to play for an AFC team but is open to the NFC.

ESPN previously reported that 12 teams contacted Manning's camp within 24 hours of him becoming a free agent.

Manning is by far the best quarterback on the market and will continue to be when free agency opens next week. Matt Flynn is the only other free agent who most consider to be a potential starter but Manning is easily a better option than him.

Manning could elect to work out for a few teams. He said at Wednesday's press conference that he hasn't thought about his next team but that's hard to believe.
