You didn't think there would be new Peyton Manning information without someone disputing it, did you?

Both the Denver Post and ESPN say the Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks are out of the Peyton Manning race. KC tried to set a visit with Manning but he declined, thus they are no longer involved, according to both reports. Others disagree with that take.

The News Tribune in Seattle writes:

Contrary to an earlier report by the Denver Post, a team source with knowledge of the situation confirmed that Peyton Manning has not declined an invitation to visit with the Seattle Seahawks, which means the door remains open that the future Hall of Famer could expand his trips to include a possible visit to Seattle.

Doug Farrar of Yahoo! Sports:

Both teams contacted Manning and requested that he come to their facilities, but were rebuffed -- at least according to Klis. However, Eric Williams of the Tacoma News-Tribune reported on Sunday night that the door is still open for the Seahawks, and that Manning did not specifically refuse to visit the team's facilities. And an NFL source told Shutdown Corner on Sunday night that the Chiefs are still in the hunt as well.

Farrar tosses in via Twitter that the Chiefs and Manning's camp have had productive conversations.

I'm still holding onto that glimmer of hope like the rest of you. Unfortunately, I'm not nearly as hopeful as I was at this time three days ago.
