Per Chris Mortensen of ESPN, Peyton Manning has made his decision … and he’s taking his talent to the Mile High City. Mort reported that Manning had advised agent Tom Condon to wrap up negotiations on what is believed to be a five-year, $95 million offer.

 The belief is, according to multiple reports, that the Broncos will now try to trade quarterback Tim Tebow. An expanded report from Mortensen and Adam Schefter indicates that Manning called Broncos VP of Operations John Elway on Monday morning to inform him of the decision.

Manning also called the San Francisco 49ers and Tennessee Titans, the other two teams in the running for Manning’s services, to inform them. Manning threw for Elway and a large group of Broncos and executives and coaches on Friday in North Carolina, and Elway was impressed. “We enjoyed visiting with Peyton today in N.C.,” Elway tweeted on Friday. “He threw the ball great and looked very comfortable out there. Watching him throw today was the next step in this important process for our team and Peyton. It was a productive visit and went well.”
