09:12 AM ET 03.17 | The Broncos have been cash-tight in recent years, but owner Pat Bowlen, no doubt frustrated at his team winning just two playoff games in the past 13 seasons, is willing to push some money around here, dig deep there, maybe even -- who knows? -- borrow a dollar or two here and there to land Peyton Manning. Given his recent health history, Manning is an enormous financial risk, one that Bowlen is willing to make, according to an NFL source. So are the Titans and 49ers.

Zero chance of Manning going to Denver.

The Broncos are a reported $40 million under the cap. How the heck does the writer think they are cash strapped?
They have more money laying around they never spent last year. They are QB strapped, not cash strapped. I would like to take a strap the writer. Would that be considered bullying?

I don't think he's talking about the cap 50. But if it's Woody, who knows?

I get it, but the owner has money he made last year falling out of his pocket. They all make millions, cannot help it with shared revenue.
The players were dumb, they let a lower cap kick in last year, but the minimum floor cap does not kick in for another year ( or is it two ).

Bowlen "cash-tight " = cheap/greedy NOT strapped for cash.

There-fixed.

I'm still surprised he even considered them at all.

maybe he likes the Mile High club

Tebow is wearing out his knees praying Manning passes on Denver...

A NY court might think so

What's not said here is that John Elway is throwing in one of his car dealerships that he will let Peyton run as part of the comp plan.

March 17, 2012  11:22 AM ET

I think Elway sold those to Huizenga.

March 17, 2012  11:50 AM ET

I don't buy it. A rabid fan base that packs the stadium, money from selling all the Tebow jerseys, the TV deal. No way he is cash strapped. If you are cash strapped with all of that coming in, you make a box of rocks look like Einstein. Why would he even want people to think that? It would not make Peyton confident they would spend to put a championship team around him. What moron at the Denver Post wrote this garbage?

March 17, 2012  11:57 AM ET

I just can't see Manning going to Denver. CAn't see it.

March 17, 2012  11:58 AM ET

I'm thinkin' they better shore up that O-line for Manning.... I seem to remember Tebow using his legs quite a bit, and not on planned plays...
