Peyton Manning Rumors: ESPN's John Clayton Says Seahawks Are Leading Contender For QB's Services

ESPN’s NFL guru John Clayton went on The Kevin Calabro Show on Wednesday afternoon on ESPN 710 in Seattle, and spoke about the status of quarterback Peyton Manning. In terms of next season, Clayton feels that the Seattle Seahawks and the Washington Redskins are the two leading contenders for the ailing QB’s services. That is if he can play, of course.

Per ESPN 710 Seattle on Twitter:

That's all good and everything, but with some of the things being said about his throwing ability, no one in the league might want him for next season.

A CBSsports.com report had some quotes from the Indianapolis Star’s Bob Kravitz on The Tony Kornheiser Show earlier today, in which he called the status of Peyton’s arm a ‘wet noodle’ amongst other things:

"I think people are starting to sway over to Jim Irsay’s side on this," Kravitz told Kornheiser. "… It’s such a no-brainer. It’s been a no-brainer since they went to 0-13. He could give them money to play football. Andrew Luck has got to play, okay? It’s not even about the $35 million anymore. I mean, the guy’s arm is a noodle, he can’t throw like an NFL quarterback, and by March 8, there’s no way of knowing whether he’s going to be ready or not."

"I know some of the people that have seen him throw," Kravitz continued. "They say he’s not throwing like an NFL quarterback yet. That doesn’t mean he never will. This thing is going to take time. Structurally, he’s sound. Structurally, he can take a hit."

Hopefully Peyton can get this ship righted before the start of training cam this summer, regardless of what team it’s for.
