What's trending in the NFL: Beer company reaches out to Peyton Manning; picking future NFL champions

Here are the top stories from Wednesday:

From Thomas Neumann’s story predicting the next 25 Super Bowl champions, featuring a title by the San Diego Raiders in Super Bowl LV: “Derek Carr throws for 310 yards and three touchdown passes, including two scores to All-Pro wideout Amari Cooper, as Raider Nation takes over the stadium its team wasn’t allowed to occupy years earlier. Halftime performers N.W.A. bring down the house with a rousing, uncensored rendition of “Straight Outta Compton.” The Giants fall short despite a Super Bowl-record 15 receptions by Odell Beckham Jr., ensuring that head coach Ben McAdoo will be mistakenly called Bob for at least another year.”

From Jeff Legwold’s story on Broncos linebacker Von Miller likely getting the franchise tag: “The free-agency dance the Denver Broncos are about to do with linebacker Von Miller is a familiar one. Since John Elway began calling the football shots, when the Broncos want to keep their most prominent free agent on the roster, they have followed the same step-by-step procedure. Miller should get ready to wear the franchise player tag.”

From Sam Monson’s story on 10 sleeper NFL free agents for 2016Insider: “[Mark] Barron was a first-round pick in 2012, selected No. 7 overall as a safety out of Alabama. He has been poor as a safety in the NFL but looked promising this season as a weakside linebacker. Barron’s speed was impressive in the box, and he also became an effective player on the blitz, with 16 total pressures and a batted pass on the rush. Barron could be a very effective option at linebacker in a class that isn’t overflowing with them.”
