Were the Broncos trying to trade Peyton Manning to the Houston Texans this past off-season? According to one source, the answer is yes.
More than one source told Benjamin Allbright of 94.1 FM in Denver that the Broncos tried to trade Manning sometime before the Denver quarterback signed his restructured deal with the team on March 4.
A Broncos spokesman was quick to deny the rumor on Twitter, “The speculation is false, and [the] report is inaccurate,” the team spokesman wrote.
