DENVER (AP) -- It appears Peyton Manning is choosing Denver as the place to continue his NFL career.
A person briefed on negotiations says the NFL's only four-time MVP called Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams and told him that he has chosen to negotiate with the Broncos.
Manning became a free agent earlier this month when he was released by the Indianapolis Colts. He missed all of last season because of multiple neck surgeries.
The addition of Manning could well lead to the trade of Tim Tebow (TEE'-boh), who took over as the starter midway through the season and led the Broncos to the playoffs despite his uneven play.
