INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Kansas City coach Romeo Crennel says his team would consider signing Peyton Manning -- if the four-time league MVP becomes a free agent.

Crennel made the comment Saturday at the NFL's annual scouting combine in Indianapolis.

Manning's future has been a hot topic around the city for months, and with the likelihood the Colts will not pay a $28 million bonus by March 8 to keep the four-time league MVP in Indy many are wondering where he will land.

Most team officials and coaches have been wary of discussing Manning for fear of violating the NFL's tampering rules. But when asked whether the Chiefs would pursue Manning, Crennel said: "With a talent like that, I would be crazy not to consider it if he were available."
