NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports the Dallas Cowboys and Indianapolis Colts have “discussed” trading for Manning, per a league source.
Rapoports reported on Monday that the Colts and Cowboys have “serious conversations” about Manning’s contract extension.
Manning is due $19.2 million this season and $18.9 million in 2020.
He’s under contract through the 2022 season.
The Broncos, on the other hand, have been adamant about not trading for the quarterback this offseason.
If the Broncos are willing to part with Manning, they could be able to make a deal with another team to acquire his services, RapopORT reported.
Rapaport noted that the Broncos have not made any offers to the Colts regarding Manning, and that the team “has no interest in trading for him.”
The Broncos could also look to the Raiders for Manning’s services.
The Raiders would be willing to match any offer Manning makes, according to Rapopport, which is why the Broncos would have to be willing “to part with the star quarterback.”
The Raiders, who have made Manning a priority for several years, could be willing take a big pay cut to acquire Manning.
However, the Raiders are also in need of help at quarterback, and it could be difficult for them to match the Broncos.
With Peyton Manning not yet set to make an announcement on his long-term contract, there’s no guarantee that the Raiders would trade for Manning.
The Denver Broncos have made several offseason moves this offseason, but none of them have been particularly beneficial.
