We are all well aware that the Broncos and Titans look to be the two teams battling to sign Peyton Manning, but ESPN Chris Mortensen reports that there is a third team. And that third team is the 49ers.
According to Mortensen, the 49ers have already worked Manning out and had him take a physical. So yeah, they are indeed a serious contender.
Manning worked out for the 49ers on Tuesday night at Duke in Durham, N.C., with coach Jim Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Greg Roman witnessing a passing session that was described by a source as “very impressive.”
It was impressive enough that the 49ers sent a doctor to Durham to administer a physical exam to Manning on Wednesday.
So now we really get to see what’s important to Manning. Will it be money (Denver and Tennessee) or the best chance to win a Super Bowl (San Francisco).
