Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen took a red-eye flight from his home in Hawai'i to Denver to meet with free agent quarterback Peyton Manning, The Denver Post reports.
Bowlen is also willing to do whatever it takes financially to land the four-time NFL MVP.
The Broncos have over $40 million in salary cap space and have $86 million in cash committed to the 2012 season, mostly in the form of non-guaranteed base salaries. Last month, Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway said the team was willing to spend more money this off-season.
"Cash-wise we'll spend more than cap this year," Elway said. "But that's where it comes down to how everybody accounts and how the numbers get skewed. Whether you're over the cap or under the cap it just comes down to the accounting."
