It was reported Thursday morning that the Chiefs had already contacted Manning, mere hours after he was officially available. The Chiefs signed quarterback Matt Cassel to a six-year, $62.7 million contract in 2009, but a hand injury sidelined him for much of the 2011 season.

A number of teams – the Chiefs, Broncos, Cardinals, Redskins and Dolphins, among others - have already shown interest in Manning, who was released by the Colts this week. Manning is expected to make a decision on a new team within a week.
