Reportedly, Manning will visit Tennessee. His decision will therefore not coincide with the beginning of free agency.
I have to say, if you ever find yourself feeling good about about your fellow man, read the comments in Pro Football Talk. The negative stuff people consistently come up with makes the Peyton Manning take-down that's going on here look like a pep rally.
Part of the blame goes to Florio and his snarky style. He sets the tone. But goodness, the bile some folks spew in those comments is really discouraging.
