Football great Peyton Manning could be heading to Connecticut.
It’s all the buzz around town after reports that he was spotted house hunting in West Hartford.
Eyewitness News first heard about a Peyton Manning sighting from a caller into radio partner Country 92.5. The call was from a realtor named Erin, who claimed the recently-retired NFL star was in town looking for homes.
“I'm a real estate agent. I happen to know that Peyton Manning is coming to West Hartford because he looked at two of my listings in West Hartford last week with his realtor,” Erin said on Broadway’s Electric Barnyard.
“So, Peyton Manning was in the area though last week you're saying and he was looking at listings,” the radio host on Country 92.5 asked.
Erin replied “Yep, his agent called me and said we need to look at these properties and I had to meet them at one because it was an accompanied showing and he said he got a job at ESPN.”
Manning announced his retirement last week, and there’s been some talk that he might join one of the networks, potentially ESPN, as an analyst next season.
There has been no word about a Manning hire, but if he does end up at ESPN, West Hartford would be a logical choice to live, as many ESPN hosts already live there.
