INDIANAPOLIS -- The Peyton Manning-to-Kansas City rumors have taken the next step.
Kansas City radio personality Bob Fescoe tweeted that he has heard that Manning’s agent and the Chiefs have already talked twice and signing Manning is a good financial fit for the Chiefs.
Here we go.
Well, first, the league has tampering rules, so if Manning’s agent has talked to the Chiefs, that will get the Chiefs in trouble. Plus, I’m not sure the Chiefs -- or any team -- would talk about any about a contract until a team can take a look at Manning’s physical state. He has yet to be cut by the Colts, so the Chiefs cannot get a look at Manning’s neck.
However, I do think the Chiefs and Manning would be a good financial fit and there are plenty of football reasons why it is a good fit. So, I think he should stay tuned.
But it is impossible to think this potential pairing is close to being a reality.

Mike Greenberg and Marcellus Wiley discuss, in a podcast, what kind of season the Raiders and Carson Palmer may have in 2012. In this podcast, they wonder if Philip Rivers or Norv Turner has more pressure heading into 2012. I say Turner does. Rivers won’t lose his job if the Chargers fail this year.
