RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — People familiar with the negotiations say the Miami Dolphins are out of the chase for Peyton Manning and that the quarterback will work out for the Denver Broncos Friday.
A person confirmed to The Associated Press that Manning phoned the Dolphins on Thursday and said he'll sign elsewhere. Another person told the AP Manning plans to work out Friday afternoon at Duke for the Broncos.
The people spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the workouts have remained private and the Dolphins haven't talked publicly about negotiations.
Early Friday morning, Broncos executive John Elway was seen at the Centennial, Colo., airport. The same plane that picked up Manning for a session with Denver last week was en route to the Raleigh-Durham area, where Manning has been rehabilitating from neck surgeries.
