The Los Angeles Rams, reportedly had an internal discussion with Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning for a possible signal-calling gig in Hollywood, according to multiple sources.
Gearing for a big market return, the Rams are brewing a move that will certainly add fire and star power to the team in 2016.
According to ESPN Sr. writer Adam Schefter, the Rams already engaged in some talks with Manning’s camp for a quarterback job, should he decide to extend his NFL career next season.
Many believe this will be the final season for Manning, who will leave a legacy as one of the finest quarterbacks in NFL history with five league MVPs around his belt.
Then again, insiders aren’t ruling out the chance of playing again for the last time, and possibly joining quarterback legends Joe Namath and Johnny Unitas, who finished their careers in Southern California.
“Manning still is under contract to the Broncos for another year, but most around the league do not expect him to return to Denver next season, if he returns at all.
Manning still must decide whether he wants to play after this season, and the Rams still are formulating their quarterback plans. But they are monitoring the Manning situation, per a source, which is a sign that the Broncos quarterback could have options next season.
After coming back from a complicated neck surgery in 2011, Manning continues to struggle with injuries over the last four seasons. This season, Manning missed seven games with a left foot injury but returned strong toward the end of their campaign, powering the Broncos to their second Super Bowl appearance in three years.
