NFL Network will reach out to Peyton Manning if he retires

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is still deciding if he should play another season or retire but if he chooses the latter option, he may have a job waiting for him quite quickly.

According to Michael McCarthy of Sporting News, NFL Network has said it will contact Manning about a job should the future Hall of Famer decide to walk away from the game.

“NFL Network is always interested in former players who are looking to enter the media business when they step away from the game,” NFLN spokesman Alex Riethmiller said to McCarthy. “Should that be the decision Peyton makes this offseason, I’m sure we’ll reach out to him.”

Manning has indeed expressed interest in working on TV after he retires, as he has a great personality for it. Just take a look at all of the various commercials he’s done throughout his career.

But NFL Network’s games are produced by CBS and NBC and based on Riethmiller’s statement, it wouldn’t be surprising to see other major networks like FOX get involved in a potential bidding war, especially if Manning isn’t sure if he wants to do studio work or game commentary.

Either way, this is a story to watch, so stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates on Manning’s future!
