Report: Peyton Manning would like to continue playing
Tuesday March 1st, 2016

Peyton Manning, who is currently mulling retirement, would like to continue playing according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

“Here’s my understanding—I think he’d like to keep playing. In a perfect world, he’d like to keep playing,” Schefter said on Mike and Mike Tuesday morning. “The question is, who’s going to give him an opportunity? And it’s tough to identify that team right now, that’s willing to sign him to the deal that makes it worthwhile for him, that allows him to continue playing.”

Schefter added that it’s unlikely that Manning would join the Texans and Rams, and that the veteran signalcaller already has some job offers if he decides to retire. TV networks are interested in bringing him in as a color analyst, and several NFL teams would like him to help out in the front office.
