Peyton Manning To The 49ers?

Could the 49ers sign Peyton Manning?

Early on in the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, handicappers had two NFC West teams in the running, Seattle and Arizona. The Cardinals have fallen out of the mix and Seattle never really got too serious about Manning, but a reunion of Colts quarterbacks by the Bay could be in the works. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that the 49ers are in on Manning.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh, the man who Peyton replaced in Indianapolis, worked Manning out this week. The hottest free agent ticket also got a physical from the team, but he did not visit their facility.

Yes, Jeff Fisher's Titans were always second fiddle in the AFC South with Manning running the Colts' offense. The Rams are hardly Super Bowl contenders in 2012, but three years of Manning with an already very good 49ers team could be a force.

This could also be Tom Condon being Tom Condon, using a team to negotiate with other interested teams. He ran Brandon Lloyd out to San Fran this week for a favor too.

The other teams in the mix for Manning, viably in the mix, are Denver and Tennessee.
