Peyton Manning has left the building. In Denver at least. The former Colts QB landed in Arizona on Saturday night to meet with the Cardinals, according to the Arizona Republic. The meeting will continue into today.
I'd imagine Arizona is very appealing for Manning. The weather is great, the facilities are new and there's a guy he could throw to that's not too bad -- Larry Fitzgerald, of course. The Cards will likely use Fitzgerald as a recruiting tool and it's a damn good one.
Where does he go from here?
He'll head back to Miami where he has a home and he's also expected to meet with the Dolphins at some point. From what I can tell, KC is not on the schedule right now. Things can change but that's probably not a very good sign at this point. Keep in mind we've heard very little about KC's involvement so I think there's a lot we don't know. Whether that's good or bad...I don't know.
Manning reportedly wants to make a decision by Tuesday, the start of free agency.
