Peyton Manning is far from a final decision about where he'll play in 2012, but here's a promising step in the right direction: A source tells ESPN that "his gut is that Manning is leaning toward Denver."

Speculation about Manning potentially landing with the Denver Broncos reached a fever pitch Friday when the veteran QB made a much-publicized visit with John Elway on Friday. Manning also visited the Arizona Cardinals this weekend, however, and rumor has it the Miami Dolphins are next. If the Broncos do get Manning, the next domino to fall will be Tim Tebow, their current quarterback; the Jacksonville Jaguars are considered a leading contender to land Tebow via trade.
