WATCH: Gatorade Pays Tribute to Peyton

Since the day that Peyton Manning officially hung up his helmet and pads as a NFL player, there has been plenty of speculation about what he will do in the future. Now, it appears we know one thing that he will NOT be doing when the 2016 season kicks off.

According to the New York Daily News, Manning has told the NFL's broadcast partners (CBS, Fox, NBC, NFL Network and ESPN) that he is not interested in joining any of them as a game analyst for the upcoming season.

Earlier last month, reports had surfaced that Manning, fresh off his retirement following a 18 season career that included two Super Bowl titles (including this past season with the Denver Broncos), had asked for post-career advice from Hall of Fame coach and legendary broadcaster John Madden. Madden reportedly told Peyton Manning to follow the path of John Elway and go into team management.

CBS had been interested in paring Peyton Manning with their lead play-by-play man, Jim Nantz, on the network's coverage of Thursday and Sunday games, according toPro Football Talk. His name had also been mentioned as a member of the studio crew for ESPN's coverage of the league.

Peyton Manning has continued to stay quiet about what his future plans will include him doing. One option (going with what Madden had told him) is to join a NFL franchise as either a part owner or a member of the front office. The odds on favorite for those services is the Tennessee Titans, located in the same state where Manning was a college football legend from his time with the Tennessee Volunteers.
