Peyton Manning is going to stay on the speaking circuit.
A source with knowledge of Manning’s plans told PFT that Manning will not consider returning to the NFL and therefore is not an option for the Vikings as they go about addressing their quarterback situation following the injury suffered Tuesday by Teddy Bridgewater.
Bridgewater suffered a dislocated knee and complete tear of his ACL during Tuesday’s practice.
Veteran Shaun Hill takes over as the team’s starting quarterback. For now, undrafted rookie Joel Stave is the only other healthy quarterback on the Vikings’ roster, though that could change as soon as Wednesday and will almost certainly change by the weekend when teams across the league finalize their initial regular season rosters.
