Report: Potential Panthers buyer recruiting Peyton Manning to ownership group
A potential buyer for the Carolina Panthers is reportedly the latest figure to try to get Peyton Manning back into football.
According to Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer, Ben Navarro, a Panthers ownership hopeful, has reached out to Manning and extended him an offer to join the potential ownership group.
Navarro, the CEO of Sherman Financial Group, is considered by some to be the likeliest buyer of the Panthers. Manning is said to be still considering his offer.
Manning has been turning down potential broadcasting jobs, but a role in an ownership group could be enticing to him. It may be even moreso if he gets some sort of say on the football side of things, though we know nothing about the nature of the offer and what it might entail.
