Peyton Manning reported to be interested in Texans

Video report from KTRK in Houston says there is strong interest between Peyton Manning and the Houston Texans, an AFC south franchise that the star QB is familiar with and which he believes has a shot at making a Super Bowl.

Bob Allen, Sports Director at KTRK, doesn’t name his sources but drops these two little nuggets for fan and viewer consideration:

I'm told the relationship between him and Colts owner Robert Irsay now is strictly business. And don't underplay the competitiveness between Peyton and Eli -- it "does" matter that Eli has two Super Bowl rings to his one.

The Texans routed the Cincinnati Bengals in the Wild Card round of the NFL playoffs before losing 20-13 to the Baltimore Ravens. Could a healthy Peyton Manning have made the difference and gotten the Texans farther?
