Add ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski to the growing list of football pundits who have a strong opinion on where Peyton Manning should play next season.
During an interview with WPEN-FM in Philadelphia, Jaworski said he could see Manning in the Big Apple as the right fit.

"I love (Jets quarterback) Mark Sanchez, and there are 25 other quarterbacks in this league that I would take Peyton Manning over," Jaworski said, via The Indianapolis Star. "(But) there's a turf war in New York. The Giants just won the Super Bowl. The Jets are fighting for every inch of space they can get in the newspaper. How do you get that inch? How do you get the headlines? You sign Peyton Manning."
The Colts face a March 8 deadline when the quarterback is set to receive a $28 million bonus, and owner Jim Irsay said last week the two sides have talked more in recent weeks. Jaworski, like many others, doesn't expect Manning back in Indianapolis, and in his opinion the ideal destination is a Super Bowl contender with a void to fill at quarterback.
