Four likely homes for Peyton Manning post-retirement.

We all heard it. Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning told Patriots coach Bill Belichick this might be the end. Shortly after, he informed close friends of his that he will most likely retire after Superbowl 50. Manning has already expressed interest in joining the administrative side of football after he retire. Joining another franchise as an executive or coach most likely will not happen immediately after his retirement, but who could he end up with?

Tennessee Titans

Manning has strong ties to the state of Tennessee. He was a legendary quarterback for the Volunteers. His wife is part-owner of the Memphis Grizzlies. Manning spends a lot of his down time in the Volunteer state. If he wants to stay in the NFL, the Titans will be a hot candidate to land the future hall of famer. They need the help. He could be a great voice in Mariota’s ear, and a great leader in the organization to such a young team.

Tennessee Volunteers

I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he was eventually hired onto the staff in Tennessee’s football program. Manning spends a lot of time in the off-season at the university. He once made the Colorado Symphony play the “Rocky Top Tennessee” tune. Manning loves his alma mater. This wouldn’t be a shocking move considering he could help develop the quarterback position.

Cleveland Browns

Manning and Browns’ owner Jimmy Haslam has connections with the University of Tennessee. Notice how all of these relate to UT-Knox? It’ll be quite a reach, but Haslam may try to lure him into the Cleveland organization to help end their curse.

Indianapolis Colts

This one is self-explanatory. Manning has emotional ties to the organization which gave him the opportunity to begin his legendary career in the NFL. He played 14 seasons with the Colts and won a league record five MVP awards. He is the Indianapolis Colts all-time leader in  career wins, passing touchdowns, pass attempts, pass completions, and passing yards. If anything, the Titans and Colts are front-runners.
