It is believed by many that Manning has narrowed his potential destinations to the Denver Broncos and the Arizona Cardinals. The four-time Most Valuable Player visited with Broncos executive vice president John Elway on Friday, and also traveled to Arizona to meet with the Cardinals this weekend. It has been reported that he will not visit with any other teams. The Miami Dolphins, Tennessee Titans, and Seattle Seahawks are also reportedly interested in the veteran quarterback. The Washington Redskins were believed to be interested, however after the club traded with the St. Louis Rams for the No. 2 overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, it is believed they will select Robert Griffin III.
