Peyton Manning is top choice for ESPN, Fox prime-time analyst

ESPN may "back up the truck" for Manning and make him an enticing offer, according to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post.

Despite the overwhelming belief that Manning is the ideal color man and perhaps the next generation John Madden, he's been hesitant to make that official plunge. Gruden recently left ESPN to return to the National Football League as head coach of the Oakland Raiders.

Mueller Charges 13 Russians With US Election Tampering
In the more than 10 years since establishing a relationship with Putin, his business has expanded to services for the military. Russian agents also allegedly paid for rally organizers to hire an actress to play Hillary Clinton wearing a prison uniform.

Unfortunately for ESPN and FOX, Manning has made no indication that he's in a hurry to start a broadcasting career anytime soon. Of the two networks, ESPN is reportedly more aggressive in its pursuit of the former Tennessee QB. He's yet to show significant interest in being in the broadcast booth, but perhaps Tony Romo's success last season has given Manning a change of heart. No matter where Manning goes, or if he turns down both networks, there will still be big changes. As is stands, both are targeting the same guy to take their color job: Peyton Manning. Play-by-play analyst Sean McDonough is now in place, but that could change by next fall. Without Gruden, a staple on ESPN's Monday night broadcasts for many years, the network can take a look at revamping the whole broadcast.

Matt Hasselbeck and Peyton Manning are the favorites to take over for Gruden, yet only Hasselbeck is now employed by the Worldwide Leader. But the sports giant is going to face stiff competition from FOX, which now has the rights to "Thursday Night Football" in addition to Sunday afternoon games. The New York Post said Fox would prefer to set its "TNF" analyst first, then figure out which play-by-play announcer to pair with the analyst. Gus Johnson is a candidate for that role, according to The Post.

Over the course of 17 National Football League seasons, Peyton Manning threw for 71,940 yards and 531 touchdowns to just 251 interceptions-mind-boggling numbers that now represent the very target for all quarterbacks during regular season National Football League play.

Could Peyton Manning be in a broadcast booth this season?
