Peyton Manning is entering his fourth season out of football, but that doesn’t mean he won’t come back someday.
Does his future still hold a potential NFL front-office position, though? “We’ll see,” he told TMZ.
Manning went into even more detail speaking with NBC Sports’ Peter King for Monday’s “Football Morning in America.”
“I’ve had talks with a few teams,” he told King. “It never got into any type of negotiation, if you will. I think a couple teams have expressed interest… I’ve given them that same answer. I’ve listened. I just said, ‘That’s a job that is not a one-foot, dip-your-toes-in-the-water job. It is all-in, all-encompassing.’ I guess because I have that respect for the job and what it is, what it takes, that that’s why I’ve passed at this point. At some point, maybe I am ready to say, ‘Hey I’m all in.’ But I’m just not there yet.”
Since retiring after the 2015 season, the 43-year-old Manning has often been rumored as a future NFL personnel man or general manager a la former player-turned-GM John Lynch. He’s publicly acknowledged the possibilities along the way, leaving the door open for either a return to football or a move to TV.
