The network that clumsily nudged a former Giants quarterback out of the broadcast booth seems to be interesting in hiring a Giants quarterback who has been clumsily nudged out of his current job.
Of course, that would require creating a spot for Manning. But that wasn’t a problem for CBS a year ago, when Phil Simms summarily was bumped from the No. 1 broadcast team when former Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo decided to walk away from the game.
There’s no indication that Manning is ready to stop playing, but whenever he does, he apparently has an open offer to transition to a different kind of career in football.
