It’s been more than a year since “The Sheriff” walked off into the sunset, and there’s still no inkling of what Peyton Manning intends to do for the rest of his post-football life.
However, the retired quarterback apparently won’t follow Tony Romo into broadcasting. In a Wednesday appearance on NFL Network, John Ourand of the Sports Business Journal reported that Manning has no interest in becoming a TV analyst.
“I haven’t actually talked to Peyton about this,” Ourand said, according to NFL.com’s Chris Wesseling, “but people who are close to him say he has no interest in being a sports broadcaster. … He has little interest in traveling every Sunday. He has little interest in going into work every Sunday to do a studio show.”
Ourand added that what does interest Manning is pursuing a front-office career, something that’s long thought to be the 41-year-old’s ultimate goal.
This offseason, the five-time NFL MVP spoke to Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay about returning to the franchise he spent the first 14 years of his career with, presumably in a similar role to the one John Elway first held with the Denver Broncos, but Irsay said negotiations never got serious.
