Peyton Manning reportedly told TV networks he is not interested
Peyton Manning has reportedly decided that he is not going to pursue a career as an NFL analyst, at least in the immediate future.
According to the New York Daily News, Manning has shown “no interest” in pursuing a job in television for the 2016 NFL season. His representatives have reportedly informed interested networks of the decision.
After playing football for the last 18 years and rehabbing from multiple neck surgeries, it’s possible Manning wants to take a year off to spend time with family. The two-time Super Bowl champion reportedly asked John Madden for advice on becoming an analyst, and Madden supposedly tried to steer him away from it.
Ultimately, Manning’s goal could be to follow in John Elway’s footsteps by pursuing a career in an NFL front office. We know of at least two teams that are said to have interest in hiring him if he decides to go that route.
