DENVER — Peyton Manning wants Denver to be the next stop in his outstanding career.
A person briefed on negotiations says the NFL's only four-time MVP called Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams and told him that he had chosen to negotiate with the Broncos. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak on the matter.
Adams released a statement Monday confirming the Titans were out of the running and told The Tennessean that, "He called me himself and told me he wasn't coming, that he made his mind up to go with Denver."
ESPN first reported Manning instructed his agent to negotiate the details of a deal with the Broncos, less than two weeks after the QB became a free agent when the Indianapolis Colts released him.
Manning sat out all of 2011 because of multiple neck surgeries, but his success in the past has made him this offseason's most sought-after player.
