While known for being in a number of popular comedy videos off the field, VFL Peyton Manning might have added one of the best to his collection on Tuesday morning.
The award-winning ManningCast show is set to return for another season this fall. To stir some excitement for the show and release the schedule, though, ESPN and Omaha Productions released a new seven-minute promo video that will keep fans laughing throughout.
The video rattles through several cameos who are “auditioning” to join Peyton and Eli on the Monday night set. Those auditioning include current NFL players, former NFL players, college athletes, TV personalities, musicians, actors, and more.
The promo video ends with Peyton Manning hilariously trolling known rival Tom Brady, who will begin working for competing promotion Fox Sports in 2024.
