So overall the suitors that are chasing after Peyton are immense, but most likely suitors include Miami, Washington, and San Francisco. Let us first take a look into why none of these team will be viable landing spots for Peyton.
Sure they have a new coach, a new system, and a young team... Peyton will be lucky to have 4 years left in him, which makes this scenario kind of weird. My question for the Dolphins is do you want to build your system around Peyton for 3-4 years or around the youth in your organization for the next 7-10 years? We definitely see teams cleaning out the front office and the first order of business is, Find your QB. The difference is those QB's usually aren't 36 years old.
Washington- Simply put, according to sources, Peyton doesn't want to go there, nor does he want to go to the NFC... Washington is a wreck and they have an option that suits them much better, we'll discuss that later.
San Francisco- The only reason they're are in the mix is because Alex Smith isn't signed yet. San Fran got a great season out of Alex Smith and I believe that they will stay loyal to him, mainly because of the youth of the team, and his familiarity with that with that youth. It would make much sense to change something that got you 1 field goal away from the Super Bowl!
Ok so 1 point I want to make against Miami and Washington in particular can be summed up in 2 letters and a number...

So who do I think stands a legitimate shot at landing Peyton?
1 of 2 AFC West teams will win the services of Peyton Manning and here is each of their cases.
First we'll discuss Kansas City.
Then there is that other team in the West Division, The Denver Broncos.
Denver obviously has a glaring issue, which again is at QB. Tim Tebow has been told he has the starting job going into training camp, which means the city of Denver will back Tebow over any QB, except for an elite one. Denver has a good young offense, with solid veteran leadership. Demarius Thomas and Eric Decker look to be a very promising young pair of receivers and they have a very good short term option at running back in Willis McGahee. The one thing that Denver has that Kansas City doesn't, is a very good defense, that only looks to be better with the team focusing mainly on the Defense in this years draft. With the likes of Von Miller and Elvis Dummerville, this denver defense has a great combination of youth and veterans that are ready to compete now.
So you may ask, Which is the better place for Peyton?
