DENVER — Former Broncos quarterback Brian Griese says Denver is one of the favorites to land Peyton Manning, the highly sought-after quarterback released this week by the Indianapolis Colts.
Griese, who is a radio analyst for the team on 850KOA, said it’s “more realistic than people realize” during his appearance on ESPN’s “Mike and Mike Show” Friday morning.
Griese says one of the reasons is John Elway and his ability to connect with Manning.
“This is not a situation where the Broncos are giving up on Tim Tebow. I think this is more about trying to win a Super Bowl with a team they have now,” Griese said.
