Whenever he chooses to retire, Peyton Manning might already have a job lined up.

Sporting News reports that NFL Network says it will reach out to the Broncos quarterback whenever he retires from football about a media career, should he have an interest in broadcasting.

"NFL Network is always interested in former players who are looking to enter the media business when they step away from the game. Should that be the decision Peyton makes this offseason, I'm sure we'll reach out to him," NFL Network spokesman Alex Riethmiller told Sporting News in a statement.

It’s unclear whether the two-time Super Bowl champion quarterback would be interested in joining the network.
