There is no question, the Jets have a shot at Manning Dan Leberfeld

Let the Peyton Manning sweepstakes begin.

The Indianapolis Colts are prepared to release the star quarterback on Wednesday.

The Jets are going to be one of the many teams likely to pursue him.

And they definitely have a shot.

First of all, say what you want about Rex Ryan, the man, with his larger than life persona, is a heck of a recruiter. Also, Mike Tannenbaum is a very creative pitchman in free agency. He probably has some interesting plans to help woo the quarterback.

Also, when Manning sees the Jets training complex in Florham Park, he will be blown away. It’s the best in the league. If you are going to take a new job, the working environment is important, and the Jets complex is a Taj Mahal.

The Jets will be a major player in this race, and have a legitimate chance to land the signal-caller.
