    Peyton Manning Allegedly Turns Down Broadcast Offer

    Report: Peyton Manning Rejected Fox'''s Offer to Announce Thursday Night Football | Bleacher Report


    How do you turn down $550 million per season???

    I would have to think he would be extremely good at the job too. I don't get it. I almost think that has to be a typo in the article, no way that a contract would be that huge.

    That HAD to be a typo. Fox just paid the NFL $550 million for rights for Thursday Night Football coverage.

    Ahh, 75center nailed it...from your article, @StrongSide: "after the network agreed to pay upwards of $550 million a season through 2022 to broadcast 11 games per season."

    They should have worded it a little differently...they meant "After FOX agreed to pay the NFL upwards of $550 million a season".
