DENVER (AP) Peyton Manning isn’t heading to the broadcast booth or the front office anytime soon.
”I’m unemployed. I’ve got a couple of ads in the paper [url=http://www.chiefscheapstore.com/breeland-speaks-jersey-cheap]Breeland Speaks Jersey Chiefs[/url] ,” Manning joked Wednesday night at his Colorado Sports Hall of Fame induction, which came on the 20th anniversary of his selection as the first overall pick in the 1998 NFL draft.[img]http://www.sndpic.com//nike_nfl_jerseys/nike_minnesota_vikings/nike_vikings_409.jpg[/img]
Manning spent 14 seasons in Indianapolis and four in Denver, then retired after becoming the first quarterback to win Super Bowl rings with two teams.

He said he’s enjoying retirement but keeps close tabs on the NFL, attending several games over the last couple of years in Denver [url=http://www.titansfootballauthentics.com/luke-falk-jersey-authentic]Youth Luke Falk Jersey[/url] , where he and his wife continue to raise their two young children.
”I stay close to it,” said Manning, who retired a month after winning Super Bowl 50. ”I’m certainly a fan, an ambassador [url=http://www.giantsfootballauthentic.com/nate-solder-jersey-authentic]Youth Nate Solder Jersey[/url] , do some work with Riddell helmets, which keeps me close to it, and I still have a lot of friends in the league. Obviously I keep up with Eli.”
Manning also said he’s a big fan of Denver’s new quarterback, Case Keenum [url=http://www.titanscheapstore.com/luke-falk-jersey-cheap]Luke Falk Jersey Titans[/url] , a Manning Passing Academy alum and sixth-year pro who signed with the Broncos after leading the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC championship last season.
The two plan to get together on the golf course soon so that Keenum can pick Manning’s brain about playing in Denver, where the Broncos have gone 14-18 and missed the playoffs in the two seasons since the five-time MVP’s retirement.
”I know what it’s like to change teams,” Manning said. ”There’s expectations. There’s pressure. And there’s a lot of adjusting.”
The Broncos went 55-17 with two Super Bowl appearances and one parade in Manning’s four seasons in Denver, the best four-year stretch in franchise history.
He’ll be eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2021.
