Peyton Manning explains why he passed on broadcast jobs
Despite being courted by all the major networks, Peyton Manning is still resisting the call to become an NFL broadcaster.
Appearing at the 2018 Restaurant Leadership Conference, Manning explained that he simply prefers being a fan at this point, and doesn’t want to be a critical voice.
“I don’t want to be a critic at this point,” Peyton Manning says, saying it doesn’t feel right to become a broadcaster. Also says he enjoys just being a “fan.”
“I still do too many commercials.”#RestaurantLeadership

It’s not a small thing that Manning has turned down job offers. One network reportedly went to great lengths to try to recruit him, but he isn’t biting. Perhaps the real reason is that he has another career in mind down the road.
