(Newser) – Peyton Manning's Tour de NFL teams continues, last night making a stop in the Arizona desert for talks with the Cardinals. The hush-hush stop marks his second—the Colts' former golden boy earlier met with the Denver Broncos and will likely drop by the Miami Dolphins ahead of Tuesday, which marks the start of free agency, notes the Arizona Republic. Manning would likely want to have a team picked by then, but logistics over the quarterback's health and pay could prove dicey. Arizona may be looking to pick up a marquis player, as well as dump current QB Kevin Kolb before his $7 million bonus comes due March 17.
