Peyton Manning for senate? GOP rep sparks Twitter frenzy after Bob Corker bombshell

It could be the biggest play of Peyton Manning’s career.

The former Indianapolis Colt and Denver Broncos quarterback’s name is being floated as the next possible senator in the state of Tennessee.

Shortly after Corker’s announcement, Republican Rep. Scott DesJarlais suggested that Manning could be the right fit to take his place, in an interview with Business Insider.

“[Peyton Manning] is a great guy and a popular guy,” DesJarlis told Business Insider, but added that Manning “may be looking more at” a possible 2020 run for Senate if Sen. Lamar Alexander decides to retire, as has been rumored.
