The lucky Peyton Manning!
Peyton Manning is America’s favorite male sports star and has a successful playing career. But there is news that in case he wants to enter broadcasting, he has choices. It is learned that both FOX and ESPN are strongly pursuing to get Peyton Manning on board. FOX has started this effort since last year but ESPN has begun it recently but their persuasion appears to be strong.
But Peyton Manning is currently least interested in this aspect of the football game for his fame. The latter is keen since Jon Gruden has gone to coaching and they desperately need a replacement for him. They are even ready to pay Peyton Manning more than what Jon Gruden was getting on the same post. Wow!
But Manning is unperturbed and it has been reported that Manning would make a good executive on the NFL team. On this topic, Manning had said:
“It certainly could be a possibility. I know John didn’t take his job with the Broncos until he was 50 years old. He had stopped playing for 12 years at that point. … I’m 41 years old and it’s my second season out, so people like to make that comparison but it is such an individual thing.”
He wants to remain close to the game.

Manning comes from a family of football players.

“I’ve never seen a guy with so much ability and the dedication to match.”
Manning took his team to several wins and also made a number of records for himself. In March 2004, he was again signed by Colts for $ 99.5 million over 7 years.
