ESPN wants Peyton Manning in the booth for Monday Night Football, and they are willing to pay him a record-breaking amount of money.
The offer is reportedly as much as $20 million per year.
In comparison, Tony Romo receives a current record of $17 million per year from CBS.
Manning’s last NFL contract had a $19.2 million annual payout.
Manning already has a relationship with ESPN. He hosted the 30-episode docu-series “Peyton’s Places” on ESPN+.
ESPN reportedly wants a “dream team” lineup of Manning and Al Michaels in the booth together, but Michaels is under contract with NBC for two more years.
