Person familiar with negotiations says Manning to Broncos deal is done
DENVER (AP) ' A person familiar with the negotiations says quarterback Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos have completed negotiation on a five-year contract worth about $96 million.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because Manning is to be introduced at a news conference at Broncos headquarters later.
The agreement ends a wild chase for perhaps the most valued free agent in the history of the NFL, a player who has won an unprecedented four league MVP awards and took the Indianapolis Colts to a Super Bowl title in 2007.
It also represents a huge coup for Broncos executive and former quarterback great John Elway, and could spell the end of young quarterback Tim Tebow's career in Denver.
