Peyton Manning to the Jets?

NYDN The Daily News has learned that the Jets have inquired about Peyton Manning’s  interest in them. It’s unknown at this point whether Manning, who will  turn 36 later this month, would be want to play for Gang Green. One Jets player told The News on Tuesday night that he wanted to play with Manning. “I want him in New York,” the player said. “He needs to be a Jet.” LaDainian Tomlinson,  who played the past two seasons with the Jets, wasn’t surprised to hear  that several players told The News on Wednesday that they’d prefer  Manning over Sanchez, who finished with career-highs in touchdown passes  (26) and turnovers (26) last season. “I think the players want to win,” said Tomlinson, who was a guest  analyst on the NFL Network on Wednesday. “That’s the first thing. As  players, we always want the guy that’s going to give us the best  opportunity to win. With Peyton Manning, his track record says it all.  He’s won a Super Bowl. He’s been a four-time MVP. So, his resume tells  you right now that this guy’s going to be able to come in and we’re  going to win. . . . It’s hard to not say that you want a guy like Peyton  Manning. He’s one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.” “He’ll probably go in and maybe ask to be released. Here’s Mark  Sanchez’s gripe: ‘I took you guys to two straight AFC Championship  Games… So how can you turn around and just bring in another  quarterback?’ Rightfully so, he will be a little mad. That’s all a part  of it.”
