Peyton Manning wants to run NFL front office
Peyton Manning has informed the Denver Broncos that he will soon announce his retirement, but that does not mean the future Hall of Famer is leaving the NFL.
Longtime Houston Chronicle reporter John McClain says that Manning’s goal for his post-playing career is to work in an NFL front office. In fact, Manning wants to be the man in charge of a football operations department the way John Elway is in Denver.
Peyton wants to run a front office like Elway. He needs experience. Rams should hire him and let him learn. Or Titans.

The opportunity will obviously be there. We know of at least two teams that are reportedly willing to offer Manning a job in some sort of front office capacity, and we’re guessing the list is much, much longer than that.
Of course, several television networks are also trying to recruit Manning. If he doesn’t want to jump into a front office role right away, he could always take a year working as an analyst.
Now that we know these rumblings aren’t going to come to fruition, the possibilities for Manning are endless.
