Now that Peyton Manning’s football career is over, one political analyst would like to see him take on a new challenge: running for president.
Jeopardy! asked CNN’s Ana Navarro who she would draft from outside politics to be the next president of the U.S. She chose the former Vol and two-time Super Bowl champion because “he’s got a little extra time on his hands these days.”

Navarro went on Twitter to reaffirm her choice.
Thank u for posting. God yes! If I could pick a political outsider as President, it'd be Peyton Manning. Guy's gracious & a natural leader. https://t.co/wnKwNZwiZ1

Manning retired in March after winning Super Bowl 50 with the Denver Broncos. Since then, he’s mostly just been appearing in pizza and insurance commercials, as well as paying tribute to another retiring SEC legend.
