Breaking news out of Englewood, Colorado. Peyton Manning, a first round pick, and a conditional future first round pick have been traded to Houston Texans for the first overall pick.
The Denver Broncos also announce that with their selection they are going to draft Johnny Manziel.
Everyone knew Houston was shopping the pick, and everyone knew they needed a Quarterback. What people didn’t know was that, after the Super Bowl, Peyton Manning went up to John Elway and demanded he be traded, telling Elway “How am I to win when our defense can’t contribute?”
Denver also lost one of Mannings favorite targets Eric Decker, running back Knowshon Moreno, and OLineman Zane Beadles.
Johnny Manziel, after hearing the news, said “I hope Seattle has their big boy pants on now, because the real sheriff is in town!”
No one knows how this trade will turn out. Let’s see how Peyton does with another blue jersey on.
