According to a report by ESPN NFL insider Chris Mortensen, Manning met with Broncos GM John Elway and CEO Joe Ellis along with other team officials, and said that he’s “physically and mentally prepared to play at a significant level” in 2015.
Manning is slated to make a guaranteed $19 million if he’s on the roster on March 9, and the Broncos could ask for a reduction in that number. He also could be asked for a formal physical exam, which is mandated in Manning’s contract, according to Mortensen’s report.
There is suspicion that the Broncos would be hesitant to pay Peyton Manning back under his current deal, as the final two months of the 2014 NFL season featured a significant drop in Manning’s effectiveness. In the entire month of November, Manning threw just three TDs and six INTs. He finished the 2014 regular season with his lowest completion percentage since 2007.
In Peyton Manning’s last game, he put on one of the worst performances of his career en route to a 24-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts – his former team – in the AFC Divisional Playoff round. He finished the game 26 of 46 for 211 yards – a season-low 4.6 yards/pass.
