Peyton Manning isn't heading to the broadcast booth or the front office anytime soon.

"I'm unemployed. I've got a couple of ads in the paper Javorius Allen Jersey ," Manning joked Wednesday night at his Colorado Sports Hall of Fame induction, which came on the 20th anniversary of his selection as the first overall pick in the 1998 NFL draft.

Manning spent 14 seasons in Indianapolis and four in Denver, then retired after becoming the first quarterback to win Super Bowl rings with two teams.

He said he's enjoying retirement but keeps close tabs on the NFL, attending several games over the last couple of years in Denver, where he and his wife continue to raise their two young children.

"I stay close to it," said Manning, who retired a month after winning Super Bowl 50. "I'm certainly a fan, an ambassador, do some work with Riddell helmets, which keeps me close to it Laquon Treadwell Jersey , and I still have a lot of friends in the league. Obviously I keep up with Eli."

Manning also said he's a big fan of Denver's new quarterback, Case Keenum , a Manning Passing Academy alum and sixth-year pro who signed with the Broncos after leading the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC championship last season.

The two plan to get together on the golf course soon so that Keenum can pick Manning's brain about playing in Denver, where the Broncos have gone 14-18 and missed the playoffs in the two seasons since the five-time MVP's retirement.

"I know what it's like to change teams," Manning said. "There's expectations. There's pressure. And there's a lot of adjusting."

The Broncos went 55-17 with two Super Bowl appearances and one parade in Manning's four seasons in Denver, the best four-year stretch in franchise history.

He'll be eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2021.

The new owner of the Carolina Panthers is committed to keeping the team in the Carolinas.

And Charlotte is clearly his preferred choice.

But David Tepper left a bit of wiggle room on his first day as owner of the team.

The NFL unanimously approved Tepper's $2.2 billion purchase of the team from Jerry Richardson on Tuesday, leading to immediate questions about the new owner's thoughts on replacing 22-year-old Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.

"What's the name of the team? Carolina Panthers. It's going to be the Carolina Panthers," Tepper said. "And that means this team has to have some kind of presence in the Carolinas and last time I saw, how many are there? That's right, there's two of them."

Tepper seemed to be implying that he might consider other cities in North and South Carolina if efforts to build a new stadium in Charlotte fall through. The lease with Bank of America Stadium runs for only one more season.

But Tepper reiterated several times that the largest city in the Carolinas is the best place for the team.

"There is a logical place for this team Allen Bailey Jersey , and it's Charlotte," he said. "And far as a new stadium, again, you're asking me too much and the only thing I have a market on now is lack of knowledge. I'll call it stupidity, so I've got that down. I'll learn a lot more in the future."

Tepper's purchase was the first order of business at the league's spring meeting in Atlanta. He was quickly approved after passing muster with the owners' finance committee during a morning session.

"We congratulate David and welcome him to the NFL," Commissioner Roger Goodell said.

Tepper is paying an NFL-record price to buy the team from Jerry Richardson, the team's founder and only owner since the Panthers entered the league in 1995.

Richardson abruptly announced he was selling the team last December after coming under investigation from the league for sexual and racial misconduct in the workplace. The probe is ongoing.

Tepper is the founder and president of global hedge fund Appaloosa Management, with a reported net worth of $11 billion. Already familiar to the league as a minority owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, his purchase was quickly approved.

Tepper said he plans to formally take over the team in July.

In the meantime, he reserved judgment on both a new stadium and those who are running the football side of things Nazair Jones Jersey , most notably general manager Marty Hurney and coach Ron Rivera.

"I do think they have a great team down there right now," Tepper said. "The biggest thing I can do is have a great appreciation of how stupid I am. Sometimes, it's better to do nothing than to do something."

Bank of America will be the NFL's seventh-oldest stadium after Los Angeles opens its new facility for the Rams and Chargers , and the Raiders complete their move from Oakland to Las Vegas .

That has raised the prospect of the Panthers seeking another home if they can't get a new stadium of their own.

Tepper touched on the idea of bringing a Major League Soccer team to Charlotte, which could improve the financial viability of a new stadium. The city was passed over in MLS' latest round of expansion.

"The first thing I care about is winning. The second thing I care about is winning. And the third thing I care about is?" he said, waiting for the media to give the obvious answer. "That's on and off the field. That includes charity aspect, community aspect and how you make a community better. So you win a lot of ways, and I don't like losing in any way."

Rivera said he looks forward to working with the new owner.

"He has a sense and a feel for football and he has been around it," the coach said. "Eventually I know we will sit down and talk some football and talk about this team."

While the owners were approving Tepper, the new-look Panthers were holding their first organized workouts some 250 miles away in Charlotte.

"For a lot of people Vernon Hargreaves III Jersey , I am sure they are ready for some closure and for that transition to start," tight end Greg Olsen said. "I think this transition has been inevitable for a little while since it was announced that the team would be sold. I think for a lot of people in the building, the players, the team, just to put all of this to rest and move forward in the new direction that the team is going with."
