Manning, who became an unrestricted free-agent last week, already visited the Denver Broncos on Friday and the Arizona Cardinals over this weekend. Reports early this morning suggested that he would choose between those two teams by the midpoint of this week, however more recent rumors indicate that he is still interested in both the Titans and the Dolphins.
The Titans were the only team among those left still considered in the running that had a winning record last year. The team still has quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and recent first round draftee Jake Locker on their roster, however. Over the course of his career Manning has compiled 54,828 passing yards and 399 touchdowns. He was the number one overall pick by the Colts in 1998, and has been a four-time NFL MVP. In 2006, he led the Colts to a Super Bowl Championship, where he was named Most Valuable Player.
