Gambo: Peyton Manning is Arizona Cardinals’ to lose

Mar 11, 2012, 10:53 PM | Updated: 11:55 pm

Yet another page in the Peyton Manning saga, but this one will likely have Arizona Cardinals fans excited.

In the midst of Manning’s meetings with the franchise, John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 620 tweeted that things were looking up at the Tempe facility.

Just got off phone so in nutshell I’m hearing that unless bidwill screws this up peyton should be a card. Nothing done yet!! but promising

As the rumors about meetings and situations fly, Cardinals fans are likely encouraged by the news they’re hearing. The quarterback has only met with one other team, Denver, thus far. He spent more time with the Cardinals than he did with the Broncos. Target-wise, the desert boasts Pro Bowler Larry Fitzgerald, where as the Broncos can only offer a combo of Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas. And with time to meet with just one more team prior to the opening of free agency, Manning will be forced to make a decision soon.

While it will likely be a few more days until anyone hears anything solid, it looks like the Cardinals are quickly becoming one of the best options for Manning, if not his preferred one.
