The Washington Redskins are certainly among the 12 teams to have expressed interest in free agent Peyton Manning, but according to ESPN's Chris Russell, he's not interested:

The Redskins went 5-11 last season with Rex Grossman and John Beck shared time at quarterback. They haven't had a winning season since 2007, when they went 9-7 with Jason Campbell under center.

Manning, who officially became a free agent when the Colts released him yesterday, is understandably not interested. Two obvious reasons: One, he'd be in the same division with his brother, Giants quarterback Eli Manning, and two, he's steadily maintained his preference to play in the AFC next season rather than the NFC.
