NFL Rumors: Peyton Manning, Alfred Morris, Broncos, Dolphins, & Giants

Peyton Manning

  • James Palmer reports that the Broncos haven’t told QB Peyton Manning if they plan to release him in the event he doesn’t retire.
  • Instead, the Broncos are sticking with their plan to allow him to decide his own future and figure it all out from there.
  • Jason Cole of B/R reports that the Broncos would like to move on from Manning at this point in time.
  • According to Cole, four of the six teams in need of a quarterback have said that they wouldn’t be interested in pursuing a deal with Manning.

Alfred Morris

Redskins free agent RB Alfred Morris said he has no idea what to expect as he prepares for free agency.

“I have no idea, this is my first time going through this and I don’t know what to expect,” Morris said Thursday, via John Keim of ESPN. “I’m going in blank, not knowing what to expect, not knowing how it’s going to go. Who knows what’s going to happen? I’m excited, but at the same time, I’m kind of like wary.

“Like I don’t know what’s going to happen. Honestly, whatever happens, happens. I just want to be in the best situation possible.”

Morris did say that it’s still possible he could return to Washington, but also stressed it’s too hard to predict anything at this point in time.


  • Jeff Legwold points out that the Broncos are currently over the cap and will need to do something with Peyton Manning’s massive $21.5 million cap figure.
  • Beyond Manning, Denver could approach players regarding new deals and pay cuts such as P Britton Colquitt, OT Ryan Clady, G Louis Vasquez and OLB DeMarcus Ware.
  • Adam Caplan mentions that the Broncos could be a landing spot for recently released TE Garrett Graham, given his ties to HC Gary Kubiak.
