Yeah there is no way Peyton is with the Colts next year. Quite frankly, that organization doesn't deserve to have Peyton with them anymore and the organization is quickly turning into a dumpster fire.
Where does he go?
- Kansas City
- New York Jets?
- Chicago? (they would be a SB contender if they had a real QB)
I don't think BAL/NYJ happens at all, but you never know.
See, I could be way off but NYJ was the first team I thought of. Big market, likes to make a big splash and they are one of those "just a QB short of a contender" type teams. Closer than the others in your list, anyway. They did it w/ Favre after all.
It's also where Manning wants to go, so some of these teams like Washington have probably no shot. Manning doesn't need the money. He just wants to win. Have to think teams that are more than a "QB away" are out of the picture. IMO, Miami makes the most sense. He can transform that team into a playoff team if he's healthy.
Lions running back Jahvid Best last played football on October 16, 2011. Some within the organization reportedly fear that will be the last time he ever plays.
Best has a history of concussions. And while some teams had him completely off the draft board in 2010, the Lions traded back into the bottom of round one to get him. It was a calculated risk, with a definite potential reward.
