Ever wonder what Peyton Manning is up to now that he’s retired? Other than starring in new commercials and hosting the ESPYS?
Now that football season is back, Manning certainly has to be doing something to crave that itch for the gridiron, right?
Well, the former Tennessee and longtime NFL quarterback stars in another new commercial for DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket, and it answers all of the above questions.
Manning is the commissioner of a fantasy football league. And, well, let’s just say he’s taking it very seriously.
This hilarious new ad shows Manning running a league after he tells somebody on the phone that he will “dabble” in fantasy football this year. Manning has a full draft room, with multiple televisions, notes and more.
Manning gives fantasy advice and enforces the rules, all at the level you’d expect from the all-time great quarterback.
The ending may be the best part, as it features a guest appearance from Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott, a former Mississippi State standout. Manning is pumping up Prescott, telling him he needs him to lead his team this year — obviously, in his fantasy league — and Prescott bluntly tells Manning, “Peyton, you need to get a job.”
