Peyton Manning's Release Could Mean Rejuvenated Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks

It looks like Peyton Manning's on his way out of the Indianapolis Colts' future plans, and that means one thing for the St. Louis Rams and the San Francisco 49ers: The perennially quarterback-challenged Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks, who decided on Kevin Kolb and Tarvaris Jackson as the Future of the NFC West last year, are predictably among the teams most interested in signing the greatest quarterback who ever lived to a short-term deal. (Jerry Rice, for that matter, even thinks the 49ers should get involved.)

Manning might be done, but it's hard for me to imagine the Seacardinals being worried about blocking Kolb and Jackson with a guy who back in 2010 threw for 4700 yards and 33 touchdowns. He might be broken-down, but a few years ago he was the ultimate football-passing cyborg.

Look: I'm not sure the Rams are going to be competing with the top of the NFC West next year whether that team's got Peyton Manning or not. But I'd be a lot more comfortable with their odds if Manning weren't in town.
