Peyton Manning has again turned down an opportunity to join ESPN's Monday Night Football.
Manning decided against the commitment to a weekly schedule.
Manning has done “Peyton Places” and “Detail” shows for ESPN+. Manning likely would have been paid close to Tony Romo's $18 million per season salary, though likely closer to $12 million to $14 million. Talks never advanced to the point of a formal offer.
ESPN wanted to pair Manning with Al Michaels.
ESPN could bring back Joe Tessitore and Booger McFarland, but Kurt Warner is also an option.
