Peyton Manning future: Is it in the Cards, or with the Dolphins?

Peyton Manning future: Manning has many NFL suitors. But two teams may be emerging as the best fit for Peyton Manning's future services: Arizona Cardinals and Miami Dolphins.

With wide receivers Larry Fitzgerald and Early Doucet along with tight end Todd Heap to throw to, Manning would have viable offensive weapons at his disposal in Arizona. Clearly, part of Manning's calculation is which team is the best fit and on track for a Super Bowl season.

Adam Schein at, says "Manning, according to different sources, has put out feelers about the Cardinals. He is very intrigued by playing with Larry Fitzgerald and bringing [Reggie] Wayne along as his wingman."

Even head coach Ken Whisenhunt's agent thinks the Cards have a shot of landing Manning.

Elsewhere in New York, there's speculation that Manning could join his brother Eli, who just led the Giants to a second Super Bowl title, in the Big Apple as the new Jets quarterback.

Before Wednesday's announcement that the Colts were cutting Manning, a former NFL quarterback mentioned the Jets as a potential landing spot.

"...there's a turf war in New York. The Giants just won the Super Bowl. The Jets are fighting for every inch of space they can get in the newspaper. How do you get that inch? How do you get the headlines? You sign Peyton Manning," ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworski said.

Seattle is another player in the Manning sweepstakes as the Seahawks have the salary cap space to bring him to the Pacific Northwest.

Folks in Tennessee, where Manning went to college, have launched a website ( to help entice him back to the Volunteer State to play for the Titans in Nashville.

Manning isn't likely to let the speculation go on for too long. He has said that he'll make his decision in a week. He wants to start getting reps with his new team as soon as possible.
