Peyton Manning has been linked with several franchises in a front office role similar to John Elway with the Denver Broncos. Most recently, Manning has been linked with the New York Jets.

Manning reportedly won't take a front office job without an ownership stake.

"The whole thing about Peyton Manning, I do not see that happening," writes Jay Glazer. "Manning is not going to be a GM somewhere and work for team presidents, he’s going to be part of an ownership group. I could see him wanting a little equity."
