Peyton Manning's Status for next season

It is hard to have missed the bru-haha in the press this week regarding the older Manning's injuries calling into question his return to Indy for the 2012-13 season. Let's face it, he sucks up a lot of salary cap, and if he's not 100%, they need to cut bait and run.
So what team would possibly be interested in a Super Bowl winning quarterback of questionable health / longevity to build a season with? What team, by virtue of it's starting QB choices over the last 20 years would even DREAM of picking up Manning-the-Elder for the 2012-13 season? hmmm? Who would spend the millions to bring in this long-shot for a go at an appearance in the Big Game? What organization would do more than even think about this possibility?

MN Vikings Starting QB, '93-today
Jim McMahon - 1993
Warren Moon - 1994-1996
Randall Cunningham - 1998
Jeff George - 1999
Brad Johnson - 2006 (after he had won his superbowl and not his rookie season with them)
Gus Ferrotte - 2008
Brett Favre - 2009-10
Donaovan McNabb - 2011
Poor Vikes.
