Jeff Saturday retired this past season after a one-year stint with the Green Bay Packers and is currently employed as an NFL analyst for ESPN. Peyton Manning's former partner-in-crime isn't likely to return to the football field for Manning's new team though, his agent told NFL.com's Ian Rapoport on Sunday.
The Denver Broncos have an opening on the offensive line with centers J.D. Walton and Dan Koppen both recently suffering serious injuries. It appears that opening won't be filled with Saturday though, despite the obvious connection with Manning after the two played the majority of their careers together with the Indianapolis Colts.
Saturday's agent, Ralph Cindrich, sent a text to Rapoport that his client's return to the NFL is "possible," but "not likely." It doesn't appear that the Broncos have tried too hard to talk Saturday out of retirement though, as Cindrich said the Broncos have yet to reach out to the former Pro Bowl center.
