Person familiar with the situation: Peyton Manning worked out for 49ers at Duke on Tuesday
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) ' There are some new twists in the chase for Peyton Manning: The San Francisco 49ers have taken a look at him, the Miami Dolphins are out and the Denver Broncos are watching him throw at Duke.
A person familiar with the situation confirms that Manning worked out for 49ers' coach Jim Harbaugh on Tuesday night at Duke. The person spoke with The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no announcement has been made about the workout.
ESPN first reported Manning worked out for San Francisco.
Broncos executive John Elway and Denver coach John Fox were at Duke on Friday with Manning when he walked to the Blue Devils outdoor practice field.
Another person confirmed to the AP that Manning phoned the Dolphins on Thursday to advise them he'll sign elsewhere.
