Peyton Manning Worked Out With San Francisco 49ers

All of the talk is centered on the Denver Broncos signing Peyton Manning, however the San Francisco 49ers have entered the sweepstakes.  ESPN is reporting Manning worked out for the 49ers on Tuesday in Durham, N.C. with Jim Harbaugh and Greg Roman in attendance.  Manning conducted a passing session for the 49ers and they described it as “very impressive”.

My first reaction to the Manning news was disbelief, but not the good kind.  Any Niners fan would welcome Manning to the 49ers, including me, but the team better make a serious run at him.  Because if they don’t and it was all for show, the news could alienate Alex Smith and cause him not to re-sign.  Then we are left with Colin Kaepernick and no one else.  There is no way Kapernick is ready to start in the NFL.  We now have our reason for Smith not signing the contract he was offered last week.

    Remember, Smith and Payton Manning both have the same Agent, Tom Condon. I really believe Tom Condon is the one who is holding Smith back right now and not scheduling any trips for him anywhere because Condon knows that he can get top dollar for Smith when Payton signs and he knows Smith can get paid even better with SF if Payton does NOT sign with SF. lol.
    I dont think Smith is really worried about it too much. He knows how the game is played.
