Peyton Manning Free Agency: Suddenly The Arizona Cardinals And Seattle Seahawks Are Important!

Look, it's hard out here for an NFC West team, which is exactly why Peyton Manning's free agency is going to be a major boon for the Seahawks and the Cardinals. They're mostly in the news for underperforming, like the St. Louis Rams did last year, or overperforming so strikingly—like the San Francisco 49ers, already the most inherently noteworthy team in the division—that they can't be ignored. Last year the Seattle Seahawks and the Arizona Cardinals were known primarily for their sinkholes at quarterback, and the odd ways they chose to fill them. This year they can be known for the really noteworthy way they chose to fill them, which is something of an improvement on Tarvaris Jackson.

The Peyton Manning carousel is going to be one of the major stories of the NFL offseason; SB Nation's new YouTube channel thinks, in addition to the NFC West's two contestants, he could go to the New York Jets or the Denver Broncos.

I'm biased, because I don't want the Rams having to deal with the greatest quarterback of all time, but the Denver Broncos—with Manning and Tim Tebow in a media-generated quarterback controversy—would create what is quite possibly the most annoying story of all time.
