Peyton Manning Update: Manning Chooses The Denver Broncos, According To Multiple Reports

More: Alex Smith - The Peyton Manning Aftermath

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen, the Peyton Manning saga has ended and he will be the next quarterback of the Denver Broncos.

The negotiations have intensified between the team and Manning's agent, Tom Condon.

Schefter tweeted that Manning called John Elway this morning to tell him he's looking forward to coming to play for him and that Manning has informed other teams of his decision.

Manning coming to the Broncos also signals the end of Tebowmania in Denver as the Broncos will look to trade Tim Tebow.

All of this leaves the San Francisco 49ers with the lingering Alex Smith situation. Niners Nation asks that question as well and with the big domino in Manning finally falling, the Niners can figure out what to do with a quarterback they've already shown they'd replace. Now, when that replacement is possibly Manning, it's understandable, but still, Smith is a professional athlete and athletes are prideful.

Let the saga continue...
