Manning Coming to Meet with the Cardinals

The tour for free agent QB Peyton Manning is making its second stop tonight, as the QB is set to meet with Ken Whisenhunt and the Arizona Cardinals.

Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com reports that Manning is flying to Phoenix to meet with the Cardinals about coming aboard as their QB.

Glazer adds that Manning never intended to sign with the first team he visited, which was the Denver Broncos. The four-time MVP is also expected to chat with Stephen Ross and the Miami Dolphins.

The Cardinals are one of the favorites for Manning, as they have quarterback Kevin Kolb on the roster, and he is due a $7 million roster bonus on March 17th.

Acquired from the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a 2012 second round draft choice, Kolb completed 57.7 percent of his 253 pass attempts for 1,955 yards with nine touchdowns and eight interceptions, missing nearly half the season with concussions.

If the Cardinals are able to signing Manning, they would assuredly release Kolb to save $7.5 million in cash from his roster and workout bonuses.

  1. Kolb is a bust and bad investment!
    Even if the Cards don’t get Manning, they need to dump Kolb, and move forward with Skelton as the starter. Use that 7.5 million dollars on offensive line help. I HOPE Peyton comes to the desert!!!

    I am so proud of the Cardinals! I have been a fan since they were the St Louis Cardinals and I can honestly say this organization and team have finally turned it around from the days the were a laughing stock in the NFL and the Cheap owner Bill Bidwell! Thank god I lived long enough to see Mikell Bidwell take over now the best Quarterback that has ever poped up on a free agent market comes to Arizionia to meet with the Cardinals to possibly join them! Even if we don,t get Peyton I am proud of that! Get Peyton! GO CARDS!
