The answer is still no: Peyton Manning reportedly turns down 'Monday Night Football' gig again
Ever since Peyton Manning retired from the NFL, the major networks have been trying to get him into the broadcast booth.
ESPN made another run at him this year, but it appears the former Tennessee, Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos star will remain in retirement for at least another year.
Per the New York Post, Manning has turned down the “Monday Night Football” job once again:
Sources say the overriding factor was whether Manning finally wanted to enter the broadcast booth and commit to the weekly schedule in the fall. The answer remains no.
ESPN was certainly willing to pay for Manning. Per the New York Post, ESPN was willing to offer Manning a similar contract to Tony Romo:
The exact figure ESPN was willing to offer Manning is unknown, however, according to sources, ESPN had capped its proposed offer to Tony Romo at 10 years and $140 million. ESPN never got the chance to put it in front of Romo because CBS signed Romo for $180 million in full value over 10 years.
Will we ever see Manning in the broadcast booth? The answer to that question remains to be seen.
