Report: 49ers are third team in Peyton Manning sweepstakes

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).
