Report: Jets not considering Peyton Manning as GM
The rumors linking Peyton Manning to the New York Jets’ general manager job appear to have little substance to them.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Manning is not under consideration for the vacant position. Rapoport notes that there is little reason Manning would accept the job, and the links appear to come simply from Manning and Adam Gase having a good relationship.

In the past, it has been suggested that a front office job is Manning’s major ambition. However, he’d want it to be the right situation. The Jets, who look chaotic from the outside, are probably not that landing spot, and even if the Jets were interested, Manning probably knows it.
