Peyton Manning and the New York Jets is still a hot topic. As we all know, Las Vegas will open up betting on just about anything. The list of outrageous Super Bowl prop bets is both awesome and ridiculous. Recently some odds on what will happen with the Peyton Manning ordeal have been released, and the New York Jets check in at the fifth spot on the list, trailing retirement and a few other teams assumed to have interest in the quarterback's services.
Here's the official list of scenarios and teams, along with a percentage chance of it happening, according to Cal-Neva Sportsbook:
Miami Dolphins: 20%
Washington Redskins: 17%
Indianapolis Colts: 14%
New York Jets: 11%
Those are the only scenarios with double-digit percentage points. Six other teams appear on the list with at least one-percentage point in the odds. The remaining 22 teams have a combined six percent chance of landing Manning.
It's an interesting list, but some of the teams seem to be ranked a bit higher than they should. The Dolphins make sense on the surface, but with Tom Clements from the Green Bay Packers coming over, it seems like they will be major players for Matt Flynn instead of Manning. The Redskins seem like a definite possibility with their cap space, though a marriage between Mike Shanahan and Manning would be interesting. The Colts are another situation altogether, best left to Colts 101 for that discussion.
Then we get to the Jets. The Jets would need to do some major maneuvering just to open up cap space to address their current needs, quarterback not included on that list. Making room for Manning and dropping him into the middle of an offense that is transitioning back to a run-heavy style seems to be a weird fit. Being hampered in completing that transition and addressing defensive needs by pursuing Manning doesn't make much sense.
That's not to say it can't happen. Woody Johnson is known to become enamored with star power and loves to grab headlines. With the New York Giants recently grabbing the New York and New Jersey area by winning the Super Bowl, Johnson might be desperate for a way to take back the back page of the newspapers.
