Report: Peyton Manning Won’t Be Signing With Dolphins, Working Out for Broncos, John Elway on Friday


The Peyton Manning picture just became slightly more clear.

Reports surfaced Friday morning that ruled one interested team out of the running, while seemingly bolstering the chances of another.

Manning told the Miami Dolphins that he will not be signing with them, according to the NFL Network's Jeff Darlington. The former Colts quarterback contacted the Dolphins on Thursday to inform him of his decision.

"Manning liked Miami's roster – but the Dolphins could never provide the familiarity he desired," Darlington tweeted. "That was biggest shortcoming, they believe."

Meanwhile, The Denver Post reported on Friday morning that the Denver Broncos — more specifically executive vice president of football operations and Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway — are on their way to North Carolina to see Manning. The veteran quarterback has been working out in North Carolina at Duke.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen tweeted Friday morning that Manning will work out for Elway and the Broncos at Duke on Friday afternoon.

It's encouraging news for the Broncos and their fans, as they appear to be one of the two finalists for Manning's services, as many feel the Tennessee Titans are still in the hunt for Manning.
