Peyton Manning Looking At $10M A Year From ESPN Or Fox


It appears retired NFL quarterback Peyton Manning is about to get another hefty payday when he decides which broadcast booth to jump into.

According to¬†Michael McCarthy of Sporting News, both ESPN and FOX, who are competing for Manning’s services, are willing to pay the future Hall of Famer up to $10M a year as a primary analyst for either ‘Monday Night Football’ or ‘Thursday Night Football’.

ESPN is trying to find a replacement for Jon Gruden, who left to the booth to take the Oakland Raiders’ head coaching gig and if they are able to sign Manning they will pay him around $3.5M more than they did Gruden.

It looks like the chase is on between FOX and ESPN and both are racing to pay Manning handsomely.
