Agent: Teams had interest in Peyton Manning before retirement
Before his retirement, former Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was drawing interest from NFL teams, according to his agent.
Tom Condron, who represents Manning, told Andrew Brandt on “The Business of Sports” that his client could have continued to play in the league if he wanted to.
“I did [talk to teams about Manning],” Condron said. “And there was interest. Peyton loves the game and has a great deal of respect for it as well ... I don’t think he envisioned being a guy that would hop-scotch from one team to another. In his mind it would have been Indianapolis start to finish.”
Manning stepped away from football after winning Super Bowl 50 with Denver in his 18th career season, and is the winningest quarterback of all time.
After allowing Brock Osweiler to walk in free agency, the Broncos brought in quarterback Mark Sanchez and drafted Paxton Lynch.
