Freeman writes that; “everyone I speak to in the NFL — and I mean just about everyone — believes if Manning becomes a free agent, the Washington Redskins will sign him.”
Over the weekend there were reports that cited two people close to Manning who believed that he was “very likely” to sign with the Redskins.
There’s no doubt that Mike Shanahan will have interest in signing if and when he’s available. Washington will have the cap space and need to turn around their struggling franchise and the addition of Manning would at least give them an upgrade over Rex Grossman. Still, there will be plenty of competition for him on the open market as the Dolphins are said to be very high on him as well.
