Peyton Manning Chooses Denver Broncos, Tim Tebow Now On Trading Block

Peyton Manning has made a decision, and the AFC West just got significantly stronger.

Manning told his agent Tom Condon complete negotiations with the Denver Broncos and end discussions with the San Francisco 49ers and Tennessee Titans, according to an ESPN report. Unless the negotiations hit an unexpected hiccup, the four-time MVP will play for the Broncos in 2012 and beyond.

And the negotiations are expected to be little more than a formality. During Manning's meeting to Denver on March 9, he, Condon and Broncos vice president of football operations John Elway began discussing the framework for a five-year $95 million contract.

With Manning on the way to Denver, the Broncos are now expected to explore the trade market for Tim Tebow.

Denver reportedly has very few reservations about Manning's health. The quarterback took and passed a physical examination, and the team was content with the way Manning threw the ball during a workout, despite the quarterback's admission that his arm still needs work before it returns to full strength.
