Pro Football Talk is reporting that in the wake of the devasting knee injury to Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater, a source close to retired QB Peyton Manning said that the future Hall of Famer will remain retired and that "returning to play is not an option." (Pro Football Talk)
Manning's name was linked to the Vikings shortly following the news that Bridgewater's injury will sideline him for the entire 2016 season. However, Manning appears to have no desire to return to the NFL in a playing capacity.
