The Pittsburgh Pirates Are In On Peyton Manning

The beleaguered Pittsburgh Pirates, trying to avoid a pro-sports record 20th consecutive losing season, are interested in signing Peyton Manning, who is expected to be moved by the Indianapolis Colts this off-season.

"Peyton would fill seats at PNC Park, and if healthy, he's got a strong arm," said Neal Huntington, general manager of the Pirates. "He would have to pass our physical, but Manning would add a veteran presence for our young team, and we like the ancillary marketing possibilities. PNC Park would become 'Peyton's Place,' and we're excited about the potential for him to help us sell lots of Pirates jerseys."

Neither Manning nor his agent, Tom Condon, were available for comment.
