DENVER -- Every team in the NFL would love to land Peyton Manning, now that he's been  dismissed from the Colts in Indianapolis.

Even though he is ‘damaged-goods’ every team, including your Denver Broncos, would love to have the future Hall of Famer to be under center for a year or two.

“I think it would be great!” said Colorado Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia. “I would personally give him snowboarding lessons.”

When the state or city is going after a business, trying to get them to relocate in the Rockies, they offer all kinds of incentives to help the company make a decision.

So we asked, why not with Peyton? If he joined the Broncos, it would certainly have a positive impact on Colorado's economy.

“My friend owns Sports Fan,” said Jeff Stratton. “His jersey would be number one with a bullet no matter where he plays, so talk about generating dollars, man this would be big, not to mention season ticket sales.”

From just plain fans to city bosses, Peyton is in demand.

“We have a Peyton Package ready,” said Mayor Mike Hancock. “We would give him Great Divide beer, Stranahan’s Whiskey, Rope boots, Rockmount shirts, Chipotle burritos, Spyder ski gear, and Winter Park ski passes!”

And when the Peyton Place drama begins with Tim Tebow, you know Tim would love to learn from the ‘great one’ when it comes to playing the position in the pros.

So, Peyton, just come on out to the High Plains, we are ready for you to write Pike’s Peak or Bust on your station wagon as you head out here where the western sky is always blue and the jerseys are orange!
