Peyton Manning, Seattle Seahawks A Remote Possibility

If he can return to top form, Peyton Manning would likely be useful to a number of NFL teams this upcoming season since he's not as likely to be back with the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts have the number one draft pick and all indications are that they're ready to move on with Andrew Luck and letting Manning go.

Manning's health has been an issue all season, and his future in the league was questioned by most players. It seems like Manning might have a chance to play next year.

Peyton Manning has been medically cleared by two doctors, including Dr. Robert Watkins, who performed the most recent surgery on the Indianapolis Colts quarterback's neck, to resume his NFL career, sources told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen and ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The sources said Watkins examined Manning recently in Los Angeles and concluded the stability in his neck would have allowed the quarterback to play this Sunday if the nerves in his arm had regenerated to a satisfactory performance level.

Be cautious about how healthy Manning truly is though. Gregg Rosenthal points out that Manning's arm is still an issue, and he might not be able to throw a football the same way he used to.

The Seahawks do need someone like Manning to try and get the offense moving under center. Tarvaris Jackson performed alright for Seattle this season, but he isn't a gamechanger like Peyton who could really make the Seahawks offense click if he was here.
