    Tripucka would unretire No. 18 for Peyton

    Updated Mar 14, 2012 8:55 PM ET


    DENVER (AP)

    The only player to ever wear No. 18 for the Denver Broncos wants to make the jersey available again for Peyton Manning.

    Maybe that will entice the four-time MVP to the Mile High City.

    Frank Tripucka wore that number for three seasons in the 1960s, when he was the first quarterback in club history.

    After his tenure, the number was ceremonially retired.

    But Tripucka is just fine with breaking it out of storage. The 84-year-old Tripucka said in a phone interview that if Manning wants that number, ''He should have it. Let's give it to him.''

    Well, there's still the tiny matter of signing Manning.

    His whirlwind free-agency tour started with Denver, but also has included visits with Arizona, Miami and Tennessee. Manning spent Wednesday meeting with the Titans.

    Frank Tripucka needs to come back and chalk up some Full House T Quick Opener action for GL.

    Broncos offer un-retiring the #18.

    Bud Adams offers part ownership of the team.

    Bud Adams is obviously senile, and doesn't understand how the CBA works.

    How are you going to count ownership of the franchise against the cap

    He can offer whatever he wants, doesn't mean it will happen, or that Manning will even bite.

    Just heard on the Local sports station here in Nashville... Peyton Manning will sign with the Titans. Official announcement will not be till next week because Bud Adams grandson is getting married this weekend. Bud offered a lifetime contract that included partial ownership of the team and a V.P. job after he retires.

    Peyton Manning will wear No. 18. Frank Tripucka gave his blessing.

    What do ya'll think?

    Should he un-retire Frank Tripucka's #18 or do you think he should go with another number out of respect...say maybe roll with his college # 16?

    Even though Tripucka already gave Manning his blessings to use his number I for one think you should never un-retire a number unless it's that person coming out of retirement and using his number again (a la Michael Jordan).

    So I vote for a new number...preferably his college #16.
