Manning worked out at Duke for Denver on Friday and San Francisco Tuesday night. The quarterback wasn’t seen Saturday in North Carolina, where he has been rehabbing in North Carolina.
In Knoxville where Manning played collegiately, reporters found the doors locked and the lights off at the University of Tennessee's indoor practice field. That didn’t stop several fans from hanging around, hoping to see something of the Volunteers’ legend.
“He never ceases to amaze me,” Cutcliffe said.
The Volunteers held their Pro Day on Friday, so some Titans‘ officials and scouts might have been in attendance. Team officials, who have declined to comment about Manning since owner Bud Adams declared he wanted the quarterback, had nothing to say Saturday.
Manning, who turns 36 on March 24, threw for Hall of Fame QB turned Broncos executive John Elway along with Denver coach John Fox on Friday in a workout that lasted a little under two hours. When it was over, Elway seemed convinced that Manning is still Manning.
Whether San Francisco executives and coaches feel the same way, they aren’t saying. But they also have shown interest in the man who led Indianapolis to a Super Bowl victory in 2007. A person familiar with the situation said Manning worked out for 49ers’ coach Jim Harbaugh on Tuesday night at Duke. ESPN first reported on the session. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because no announcement has been made about the 49ers’ workout.
San Francisco CEO Jed York also may want to make his own pitch along with general manager Trent Baalke, trying to sway Manning to sign with the 49ers.View Entire Story
