Clark Hunt Confirms Chiefs’ Interest In Peyton Manning


The Kansas City Chiefs are interested in Peyton Manning.

According to…wait for it…ah hell, you’ve already read the headline so you know…

Clark. Hunt.

That’s right, the owner of the Kansas City Chiefs confirmed that the team is indeed interested in Peyton Manning. We already knew this from various reports but we hadn’t heard anything official from the team.

Until now.

“He’s one of the greatest players in the history of the league,” Hunt said. “He’s also an incredible person. We feel really good about the team we have in Kansas City going into the 2012 season, but we’ll look for any opportunity to improve and, of course, that includes Peyton Manning.”

Hunt would not confirm whether or not the team has offered Manning a deal but he did say that they would definitely be talking with the former Colts QB.

So Manning may well be on his way to Denver. And he may well visit Arizona and Miami.

But he’s probably going to stop in Kansas City too.

Let’s hope he stays there.
