It's safe to rule out Peyton Manning joining the sports broadcasting world in 2016, according to a report from the New York Daily News.
Manning's camp told network executives he will not take a job in television this fall, sources told the Daily News. The former Broncos quarterback was reportedly considering an opportunity as a color commentator for CBS, but that now looks unlikely. He never seemed interested in a studio role.
This could indicate Manning wants to join an NFL front office. Plenty of clubs would be interested — the Titans seem like a natural fit, given his ties to Tennessee. Hall of Fame executive Bill Polian thinks he could be a general manager right away, which shows the depth of his football knowledge. This is not just another famous player jumping into a front office. Manning may fit the mold of John Elway, who's proven himself one of the league's best GMs over the last five years.
