When he signed with the Broncos, QB Peyton Manning got a contract that will pay him a little more than $19 million a season. But Manning could have made significantly more than that.
According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, if Manning had decided to make it all about the money, he could have gotten $25 million a year from the Titans. Owner Bud Adams never made any secret that he desperately wanted Manning to return to Tennessee, where he had been a college star in the 1990s.
This is a bit of news that could potentially impact Drew Brees's contract negotiations with the Saints.
