Fox, not Elway, initiated Manning pursuit by Broncos

Woody Paige has a very interesting quote today:

Fox has not spoken throughout the Manning Matter, although he started it with the Broncos. According to a trustworthy source, when team officials watched the tearful news conference announcing that Manning was being released by the Colts, Fox stood and strongly suggested that the Broncos go full footballs-out for him. After considering the potential ramifications and having a discussion with owner Pat Bowlen, Elway agreed.

Fox broke his public silence Thursday evening and told me: "Sometimes you have to be willing to take big risks in life."
