FOX and ESPN both were willing to pay Peyton Manning big money to spend one day a week working an NFL game. The former NFL MVP was the sexiest name available.
But Manning, speaking at a Restaurant Leadership Conference in Phoenix earlier this week, said he wasn’t ready.

I don’t want to be a critic at this point, Manning said, via Jonathan Maze of Restaurant Business Magazine, before joking, I still do too many commercials.
FOX and ESPN were willing to spend $10 million per season for Manning, the Sporting News previously reported. The networks will leave the door open for Manning to change his mind, and Manning left at least a crack in the door by adding he’s not ready at this point.
We’re still searching for that last big hit for us, Green said.
Kemp, reacquired by the Dodgers from Atlanta in December, homered for the second straight game against his former team, a two-run shot with one out in the first off Bryan Mitchell. Taylor hit a leadoff single ahead of Kemp’s third homer of the season. Kemp hit a three-run shot Monday night.
Does that really count as news at this point? If ESPN wants to speculate by connecting dots, then just speculate by connecting dots. Don’t twist something that isn’t news into something that is supposed to feel like actual news when it’s really not news.

For example, after talking to Curran on Monday’s PFT PM podcast, I became slightly more convinced that a small possibility exists that Brady will pull a Barry Sanders and retire abruptly at some point between now and training camp. I still think there’s a very small chance it happens, and I didn’t feel compelled to get someone to tell me under the cloak of anonymity, You know, now that you mention it, Brady has never said, ‘I’m absolutely, positively playing in 2018.’
When has he ever said that? At one point in his career, Brady consistently said he plans to play 10 more years. At some point, it became a vow to play until he’s 45. He’s never been a year-to-year guy. While it’s possible that he’s now shifting into year-to-year mode, it seems like a stretch to suggest that the absence of a clear statement that he’ll play in 2018 means anything 鈥?especially Michael Jordan Youth jersey when people who know him say they expect him to play in 2018.
