Report: Peyton Manning not interested in signing with Redskins

According to a report yesterday from Chris Russell, the Redskins beat reporter for the local radio station ESPN 980AM, sources inside the Redskins organization indicated that Peyton Manning is not interested in signing with the Redskins.

Russell said this on ESPN”s Sportscenter yesterday ()

“A couple of different sources inside the organization have told me that Manning’s camp made it pretty clear to Redskins officials he doesn’t want to come here,” said Russell. “… There’s lots of reasons for that. His brother Eli, the colder weather, the whole situation down in Miami and so on and so forth. But unless that changes — and I’m taking my sources at their word — I don’t think Manning’s coming here to D.C.”

It”s been rumored that the Redskins were going to aggressively pursue signing Manning, luring him with a lucrative deal and the idea of teaming with Mike and Kyle Shanahan.

There”s also rumors that Manning has not officially removed the Redskins from his wish list, but the team is not near the top of his preferred destinations. Some inside sources indicate that at this time, Manning”s preferred destinations are, in order: Miami, Arizona, Kansas City, Seattle, and then Washington.

I”ve maintained that the best choice for Manning is probably Miami, which presumably has the inside track to sign him (as of right now). Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and new head coach Joe Philbin have both publicly stated that they”d love the opportunity to acquire him, and the Dolphins have a solid supporting cast to surround Manning.
