Times NFL reporter Sam Farmer gave a list of 10 teams Peyton Manning might end up playing for next season. Which one do you think will land the future Hall of Famer? A quick recap of Farmer's choices, with his comments: Miami: The Dolphins need to sell tickets and owner Stephen Ross is star-struck.

If you were the greatest quarterback in the history of a team, would you welcome perhaps the greatest quarterback of all-time to come to that team and maybe make you the second-greatest quarterback in team history? If your name is Dan Marino, you would. Marino, the former Miami Dolphins quarterback, says if Manning has any questions about playing for the Dolphins, he would gladly answer them. He has enough people "working with him to help him make the right decisions," Marino said Thursday, but if Manning asks, "I would definitely answer.

The Miami Dolphins figure to be one of the most aggressive teams in bidding for the services of Peyton Manning, who will be released by Indianapolis on Wednesday morning. In doing so, the Dolphins will be mindful of what happened six years ago when they let a prime opportunity get away. In 2006, the Dolphins were in the market for a quarterback and had a chance to sign Drew Brees, who was coming off a devastating shoulder injury. Brees had been released by San Diego, which had decided to cast its lot with Philip Rivers.

Peyton Manning wanted to stay with his team but was pushed out the door by ownership. LeBron James was leaving a team that desperately wanted him to stay.

Peyton Manning's surgery appears to have been a success, according to reports out Thursday. The Indianapolis Colts quarterback has been off the gridiron since surgery on his neck in September, leaving him sidelined for the first time in his 14-year NFL career. "Peyton will now be allowed to increase the intensity and breadth of his workouts as tolerated. There remains every indication that his recovery will continue," surgeon Robert Watkins said in a statement . That's great news for Manning, whose chances of returning to the field had seemed even dimmer when news first broke that he would be sitting out the season.

With all signs pointing to Peyton Manning making a team decision very soon, the star quarterback reportedly is scheduled to throw for Denver Broncos brass today in Raleigh, N.C.

Peyton Manning has narrowed down his choices of potential teams to join as a free agent. Or so the reports say. But oddly enough, that list seems to keep growing rather than getting smaller, like most lists that are being narrowed down tend to do. Since being released by the Indianapolis Colts last week, the veteran quarterback has met with the Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos, spending at least six hours with each team. Reports early Monday said Manning had no intention of meeting with any other teams.

If all goes as expected, Andrew Luck will officially begin his career with the Indianapolis Colts in eight days. Luck frequently has been compared to Peyton Manning, and a just-released e-book about the Stanford quarterback helps hammer home that point. The Kindle book "Andrew Luck: Inside the Making of a No. 1 Pick" is available on Amazon.com and written by longtime Cardinal beat writer Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News. In it, Wilner reveals how Luck was so meticulous about critiquing himself in college that he wouldn't leave practice before sitting down to study the video shot of him that day. Wilner writes: "'On Wednesday, he wouldn't even shower after practice.

Throughout his career in Indianapolis, Peyton Manning was untouchable at practice, just like every other NFL quarterback. On Sunday night, the Colts had a chance to hit the star player -- who now plays for the Denver Broncos -- for the first time, and they took advantage. They sacked Manning four times in the 39-33 Colts victory and more than once hit his arm while he was trying to throw, at one point jarring loose a fumble that left the end zone for a safety. “Oh gosh. We were hitting that boy, and hitting him, and hitting him,” defensive end Cory Redding said.
