The Rams reportedly talked about bringing Peyton Manning to LA
The Rams reportedly talked about having Peyton Manning in Los Angeles next year.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Rams had internal discussions about bringing Manning to Los Angeles for the 2016 season.
All of this hinges on Manning wanting to play another season of course. And it makes sense.
Manning is a competitive nutjob who might not want to quit just yet. He's a massive name in terms of celebrity. The Rams are moving to Los Angeles without a quarterback but with a talented defense and a potentially dominant running game.
The Rams haven't had a quarterback under Jeff Fisher. Landing Manning wouldn't qualify as finding a franchise signal caller, but it would be an upgrade.
Manning is playing in his fourth Super Bowl on Sunday, suiting up for the Broncos against the Panthers. Winning for Denver would give him a shot to walk away from football and become just the second Hall of Fame quarterback to win a Super Bowl in his final game, joining his boss John Elway.
Future employment in the NFL would make that walk tougher.
