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.

The Indianapolis Colts have called a news conference for 9 a.m. PT Wednesday to announce the release of quarterback Peyton Manning, the centerpiece of their organization for 14 seasons and in many ways the face of the NFL. Both Colts owner Jim Irsay and Manning will participate. It's a sad end to an era for many people, among them John Madden, who told The Times he cannot envision Manning in another uniform. "Some guys deserve a happy ending, and he does," Madden said by phone.

Full disclosure. Before Super Bowl XLVIII, I argued that Peyton Manning's legacy was established and whether the Broncos won or lost the game wouldn't alter the way his career would be viewed. Well.... Who figured that the Broncos quarterback would end up looking more like Brandon Weedon than Peyton Manning on Sunday. Sam Farmer, The Times' astute NFL columnist, discusses Manning, the Super Bowl, and what lies ahead for the NFL in 2014 in the video above. As for Manning, Farmer was as surprised as just about everyone else that the Seahawks defense was able to take him out of his game so effectively.

A Peyton Manning photo the size of a drive-in movie screen still graces the front of Lucas Oil Stadium - site of this week's NFL scouting combine - but for how long? The quarterback's future with the Colts should be known within the coming weeks. Meanwhile, Dolphins fans have started a grass-roots campaign to lure the four-time MVP to Miami. As the Washington Post's Cindy Boren reports, fans in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., have bought a billboard to advertise ManningtoMiami.com, complete with a doctored shot of Manning in Dolphins turquoise and orange.

Peyton Manning will not be a member of the Indianapolis Colts -- the team for which he started 227 games in a row, winning a Super Bowl title and four league MVPs along the way -- next season. That much we know for sure, as the Colts announced Manning's release at a press conference Wednesday morning . But what team's jersey will Manning be wearing next season? Assuming he's healthy -- and reports are that his recovery is moving in the right direction -- he is sure to attract plenty of attention.

Peyton Manning is much more than a typical NFL player. He's also a shrewd businessman who one day could wind up owning a team. Surely, he wants to take his time to evaluate the opportunities in front of him, and to leverage one team against another to get the best deal (with the most guaranteed money.) So it's likely that he won't rush into any decision. Still, he's been in the same offense for all 14 years of his career, so it behooves him to move quickly enough to get the jump on a new system and new personnel.

Free agency starts Tuesday, and Commissioner Roger Goodell is due to hand down punishments for the Saints' bounty scandal, but the biggest story in the NFL this week -- and this off-season -- is the future of Peyton Manning. The four-time most valuable player had a busy weekend, spending Friday and part of Saturday meeting in Denver with Broncos brass, then flying to Arizona on Saturday night and meeting with the Cardinals for 6½ hours on Sunday. He then flew back to Miami, where he has a condominium, and didn't meet with Seattle or Kansas City, a strong indication that those suitors are either out of the sweepstakes or facing fourth-and-long.

If I hear one more time in a talk-radio discussion that Peyton Manning's legacy will be tainted if he can't win another Super Bowl, my head might explode. Peyton Manning has nothing left to prove. Period. His legacy is established at least as one of the best quarterbacks ever to play in the NFL. You can make an argument that he is the best. What he did during the regular season defies description. Fifty-five touchdown passes, 5,477 passing yards, a 115.1 quarterback rating, for a 37-year-old quarterback after his fourth neck surgery?
