WATCH: Peyton Manning Hilariously Introduces the Broncos’ Schedule… Again!

    by -

    After winning the Super Bowl in 2016, former Tennessee legend Peyton Manning officially decided to hang up his cleats and retire from playing football. What he did not retire from, though, are his off-the-field appearances. If anything, Manning has shown the same dedication to producing funny content on the internet that he did while studying for a Sunday night matchup.

    Manning joined up with the Denver Broncos as the new “intern” designated to release the team’s 2021 schedule last May. Now, with Manning’s “internship” almost over, the Hall-of-Fame quarterback is handing over the keys to a new Denver addition- superstar quarterback Russell Wilson.

    After spending the first 10 years of his career with the Seattle Seahawks, Pro Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson was traded to the Broncos in March of this year. And who better to show Wilson the ropes (and the to-do list) than the last quarterback to win a Super Bowl in Denver?

    The Denver Broncos will travel to the Volunteer State on Sunday, Nov. 13, to take on the Tennessee Titans.

    Since his retirement, Manning has starred in a number of original television productions and has had a number of high-profile guest appearances. The ESPN show Peyton’s Places was the first big thing to kick-off Manning’s post-retirement run, which likely bloomed into him and his brother’s hit new Monday Night NFL ManningCast broadcast, which has been extended for future seasons.

    In addition, Manning was the star of Michelob Ultra’s Super Bowl commercial and even gave a behind-the-scenes look into his new favorite TV show while appearing on NBC’s Saturday Night Live. Plus, it’s hard to forget the time when over 40 different Peyton Mannings all crammed into one office for WorkDay.
