What’s Peyton Manning going to do next? The answer isn’t clear, but according to him, it won’t be politics.
Manning was the keynote speaker at the Adobe Summit 2017 in Las Vegas on Wednesday, and in his remarks, he said he had no interest in entering politics amid rumors that he might run for a Senate seat in Tennessee.
“I don’t know where that came from. Last week I was going to run a team, this week I going to apparently run for Senate, and next week I’ll be an astronaut,” Manning said, via Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post. “I have no interest in the political world, but would like to continue serving communities.”
Manning added he has a “bucket list” of things he wants to accomplish before he moves on to the next stage of his career.
“The best advice I got was to not sign up for something full-time right away that you can’t commit to,” Manning said. “I’m taking my time and seeing what my options might be.”
It has been reported that Manning wants to run a team and may have had the chance to get involved in an organization close to his heart, but he hasn’t taken the leap. It seems that he’s still enjoying all that retirement has to offer and isn’t ready to take on a major role anywhere yet.
