Discounting the idea that Peyton Manning could come to the Jets and possibly overshadow his beloved brother Eli, here are three teams that need an upgrade at QB and - if Manning's neck allows him to play - will likely pursue him.
Ready to compete in the depth-challenged NFC East, the Seahawks feature a try-anything coach, elite running back Marshawn Lynch and a solid receiving corps. A world away from Manning's former orbit, Seattle might provide an appealingly fresh start.
Coach Romeo Crennel has said the Chiefs "would be crazy not to consider it if he were available." Similarly, Manning would be crazy not to consider joining dynamic running back Jamaal Charles and receiver Dwayne Bowe, not mention a new, rabid Midwestern fan base.
It's hard to picture Peyton partying in South Beach, but the Dolphins' owner is eager to quickly win it all. If Manning makes like LeBron, he'll team with lithesome tailback Reggie Bush and beastly wideout Brandon Marshall.
