According to ESPN’s Chris Mortenson, Peyton Manning could have made a lot more money playing outside of Denver. Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams was reportedly willing to pay Manning $25 million per season and give him partial ownership of his team.

The Broncos are giving Manning roughly $19 million per season. Of course, he chose Denver for the leadership up top. Any aging quarterback would love to play under John Elway and John Fox, and for a team that made it to the divisional round of the playoffs the year before.

Now we wait to see if Manning is worth the large contract. What do you think about the money ($96 million over five years) that the Broncos are spending on Manning?

At $96 million over five years, are the Denver Broncos paying Peyton Manning too much money?

    @MileHighMonday Long gone are the days when old Bud Adams was paying a dime for an ice cream cone.

    @PredomOrange Lol. Yeah, that story makes the Denver organization look really good. They are in a good place with Elway up top.
