In a recent interview, Peyton Manning has said that he is very much done with the NFL (for now anyway) and he wants to take the time to watch football rather than break it down and analyze it.
At the inaugural Northern Colorado Sports Awards on Tuesday, Manning said exactly what he’d like to do with all the extra time he has on his hands. This comes via The Indianapolis Star:
“People tell me that I’m going to miss football, that I’m going to have withdrawals. But I got my fill. There are things I want to do. I want to see the New York Giants play … I want to see my Tennessee Vols. I want to do a lot of things I haven’t been able to do in 22 years.”
Tennessee and Giants fans better get ready to see a whole lot more Manning on their sidelines. Hopefully Manning will chum it up with the coaching staff in Knoxville so we can get a whole lot more Peyton in our lives. Who knows? Maybe he’ll buy some Papa John’s franchises in the area too!
