RALEIGH, N.C. — Peyton Manning won't be a Dolphin or a Cardinal. But he could still join the Titans, the Broncos or even — get ready for this — the 49ers.

The race to sign the NFL's only four-time MVP and the most prized free agent of the offseason heated up Friday as Denver Broncos executive John Elway and coach John Fox watched the star quarterback throw at Duke and San Francisco was revealed as a stealth suitor.

A person familiar with the situation said that Manning worked out for 49ers' coach Jim Harbaugh on Tuesday night at Duke. ESPN first reported on the session.

Manning also threw the ball at Duke's athletic fields Friday afternoon for the Broncos. He was seen leaving the Blue Devils' indoor practice facility wearing blue shorts, a gray t-shirt and no helmet heading to the outdoor practice field followed by Elway and Fox.

Manning came off the field about 4 p.m., and the Broncos contingent left about the same time.
