ESPN and FOX are in tug-of-war battle for Peyton Manning

Former quarterback Peyton Manning

Peyton Manning has yet to say anything publicly about whether or not he is considering a career in television broadcasting in the near future, but it has become quite clear that he could have nearly any job he wants in that field.

Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reports that both ESPN and Fox are pursuing Peyton Manning as a potential primetime game analyst, with ESPN now the front-runner.

James Andrew Miller, who co-authored the ESPN oral history Those Guys Have All the Fun, reported in September 2015 that Gruden had been ESPN's highest-paid employee, with an annual salary of $6.5 million. ESPN, meanwhile, needs someone to replace Jon Gruden on "Monday Night Football".

One such intervention application pending before the Bench is from BJP leader Subramanian Swamy. It did not commit to a "dayto- day" hearing of the case.

According to a "person with knowledge of Manning's thinking", "TNF" could be an appealing option for the 41-year-old because it wouldn't require him to work weekends. Multiple TV officials who have spoken to him believe that remains his long-term target, but Manning has not fully ruled out TV in the interim. He had stopped playing for 12 years at that point.

Do you want to hear Manning calling games next season? The New York Post reported that Manning could slide next to current play-by-play broadcaster Sean McDonough, although he could be replaced by Joe Tessitore, Steve Levy or Dave Pasch should the network do a total reboot of the Monday Night Football booth.

Naturally, CBS, while would, of course, take Manning on, could never offer the top gig with the commitment to fresh-faced Tony Romo. Per Marchand, Manning hopes to ultimately fulfill a John Elway-type role with an NFL team, with an ownership stake and a role in football operations, but could use broadcasting as a stopover.
