Chiefs owner says KC interested in Manning #nyj Dan Leberfeld

Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt says his team is looking into signing Peyton Manning.

“He’s one of the greatest players in the history of the league,” Hunt told NBC Sports Network. “He’s also an incredible person. We feel really good about the team we have in Kansas City going into the 2012 season, but we’ll look for any opportunity to improve and, of course, that includes Peyton Manning.

“I would think that he will be looking for the situation that fits him best. I don’t know how important money will be to him, but I’m sure it will be part of the equation. But he’s going to be looking for an environment that he’s comfortable in.”

The Chiefs have around $37 million in cap space.
