"Peyton Manning"Peyton Manning’s camp is all set to make a decision within the next week on where he will play next season. Sources say that while Manning prefers to continue in the AFC, he is open to playing in the NFC as well.

While the four-time NFL MVP and Super Bowl Champion will have many suitors, where he signs will change the NFL for the next few seasons at least.

According to sources, 12 teams contacted Manning’s representatives Wednesday, after he was released from Colts, to gauge his interest in playing for their teams. Among those 12 teams, sources say that the Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks, Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs, Denver Broncos and New York Jets have actually been contacting with Manning’s representatives. However, reportedly the star quarterback is not ready to sign with Washington Redskins due to various factors.

Manning was officially released by Indianapolis Colts on Wednesday after his successful 14 seasons and he will become a free agent and be eligible to negotiate and sign with new teams as soon as he clears waivers Thursday. The 14-year veteran does not need to wait until the free-agent period begins next Tuesday, and he acknowledged his agent already was taking calls.

All we know is: Whichever team Manning decides to take over, their Super Bowl odds will likely go way up. One other thing to consider is that free-agent receiver Reggie Wayne will likely sign wherever Peyton does.
