“You sneaky mom!”
Per Schefter & Mortensen at the four-letter, details have come out that the San Francisco 49ers have snuck their way into the running for free agent QB Peyton Manning.
Details include:
Peyton has already worked out for them at Duke.
Niners were so impressed, that they flew their team physicians out immediately for tests and a physical.
In light of the Niners interest, the Arizona Cardinals have been told that they should proceed as though Manning will not be available to them.
Thus, the Cardinals have now tendered QB Kevin Kolb for $7 Million rather than release him to save the money.
Officially 3 teams are now in the running: Niners, Tennessee Titans, & Denver Broncos.
Broncos GM John Elway checked out Peyton throw today and liked what he saw.
This might explain why the Niners have yet to re-sign veteran QB Alex Smith and maybe even why they signed WR Randy Moss.
What do you think of these new details and how do you think it all plays out?

A brief treat for sports fans and future-of-media junkies: Bill Simmons’ column at ESPN.com about his accidental tweeting last week about Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss’ trade to the Minnesota Vikings. Simmons heard a rumor about the trade from a source and meant to send a direct message (“moss Vikings”) to ESPN reporter Adam Schefter. Instead, Simmons accidentally tweeted it to the world, which made the story blow up from private rumor to public discussion in record time.
