Peyton Manning’s career is over, but he was once almost a Tennessee Titan. Back in 2012 after the Indianapolis Colts released him he was really considering the Titans, but eventually chose the Broncos. In an interview with the Tennessean’s Jim Wyatt, Manning admitted that he was close to picking the Titans.
“I was pretty close,” Manning said of playing for the Titans, via The Tennessean.
Manning wanted to know if Manning will be coaching his former Alma Mater, but he shot down those allegations as well.
