The next month is a real slow one for NFL media types which explains why the whole Denver almost traded Peyton Manning to the Houston Texans rumors. Ever since the rumor was tweeted everyone says they have checked with sources that both confirm and deny the validity of the rumors.
So—were they? Who knows. What sounds more likely is that the Broncos wanted him to take a larger pay cut and might have used the idea as leverage.
Broncos were never letting Peyton Manning go. Team initially asked for $10M paycut. That team settled for mere $4M sez he was never leaving— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) June 24, 2015
