Ever since he retired from the NFL, everyone seems to want a piece of Peyton Manning. The former Tennessee star and two-time Super Bowl Champion has turned down a number of broadcast jobs and other opportunities.
That hasn’t stopped people from trying to land Manning, though, and now the New York Jets may be in that mix.
According to Pro Football Talk, the Jets would consider making Manning their general manager after firing former GM Mike Maccagnan:
Rumors are flying within league circles that the Jets may make a run at the future Hall of Fame quarterback who has periodically been linked to NFL management possibilities. And (Jets coach) Adam Gase, who worked with Manning in Denver, possibly would be one of the few guys who could draw Manning back into football.
Manning seems to be enjoying retirement, and this would be a full-time job and then some. However, it has been rumored that he’d rather go into management or ownership than broadcasting, so this is an interesting opportunity.
Will this be what finally draws the former Vol out of retirement?
