Peyton Manning ain’t closing the door to the idea of running an NFL team — telling TMZ Sports he REALLY likes being a fan right now … but “we’ll see.”
“I kind of like being a fan,” the future Hall of Famer told us on his way out of Spago in Beverly Hills.
“[I get to] go to a lot of games … see the Broncos play, Colts play, see the Giants play … so I’m kind of enjoying doing that part of it right now but we’ll see.”
There are multiple teams who have reached out to Manning to run football operations — but Manning clearly isn’t ready to make that life commitment right now … just a few seasons after retiring as a player.
Peyton also weighs in on the current state of the QB position in the NFL … and shouts out Patrick Mahomes from the Chiefs.
The 43-year-old also talks about how the NFL has handled issues regarding players getting violent off the field … explaining why he thinks Roger Goodell and his crew are “trying their best.”
Manning says the league has room to grow when it comes to those issues — but ultimately “they’re trying to do the right thing.”
