  Report: Peyton Manning passes on 'Monday Night Football' Indianapolis Colts legend already has a relationship with ESPN, and has fielded many broadcasting offers over the yearsThe New York Post reported that ESPN's efforts to lure Manning into the "MNF" booth have fallen short. ESPN has repeatedly tried to get him, and it also tried to hire Tony Romo, who recently re-upped with CBS.

A possible sequel to 2018’s match play contest between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson might be in the works with an NFL twist added to the mix. Two of the possibilities for the pairings include Tom Brady and Peyton Manning . Woods and Mickelson sparred off in a special event in November 2018

Is The Match 2.0 — Tiger Woods vs. Phil Mickelson, once again — happening? Several reports say it’s a go, however, the PGA Tour is cautioning that such reports are “speculative.”

Several outlets are reporting that Woods and Mickelson will do battle in a sequel to Thanksgiving 2018’s much-hyped, overblown head-to-head showdown. That mess was a limp cash grab — Mickelson took the big bag, $9 million — but this one will reportedly be for charitable relief for COVID-19 efforts.

Upping the ante: this year’s Match could reportedly include two more famous names: Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, who will pair off with Woods and Mickelson in some yet-undetermined fashion.

Sean Payton calls himself 'big dummy' for saying 2020 is Drew Brees' final season

  Sean Payton calls himself 'big dummy' for saying 2020 is Drew Brees' final season On Tuesday, New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton appeared on ESPN’s “Get Up.” On ESPN, Payton was asked about backup quarterback Taysom Hill and referred to 2020 as Drew Brees’ “final season.” Speaking via teleconference Wednesday with media that cover the Saints, Payton said he made a mistake. “I’m a big dummy, and the way I worded it was ‘coming back for his final season’,” Payton said. “I honestly don’t know if it’s his last year. That thing blew up on me. Obviously that was my fault, it’s not a big secret I let out of the bag. I think his plan is to take it year by year.

Tom Brady and Peyton Manning are reportedly being eyed as possible partners for Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson for their rematch on the course. Manning could slide in easily given that he’s retired and turned down a deal to join ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” broadcast booth.

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are planning to square off in a two-on-two golf event to help coronavirus relief efforts. NFL icons Tom Brady and Peyton Manning will join the superstars in a match organized by AT&T's WarnerMedia and the PGA Tour, a person familiar with the negotiations

There has been no official confirmation yet, and while the PGA Tour acknowledged to Yahoo Sports that “discussions along these lines have been ongoing for quite some time,” nothing has been approved by the Tour.

“And, yes, it would have to be sanctioned by the Tour in order to take place,” the PGA Tour told Yahoo Sports.

Golf.com is reporting that Turner will be involved in the production, which would take place at an empty Florida course two weeks before the resumption of any league play. So if the NBA or Major League Baseball announces plans to come back at the start of June, Match 2.0 would take place in mid-May. This report suggests that the event would be on regular cable channels, not pay-per-view, with advertisers providing the revenue, not viewers.

CNBC’s report indicates the PGA Tour is involved, and announcing teams could include members of the Turner broadcast crew such as Charles Barkley.

Tiger Woods was subconsciously 'starting to peak' despite Masters postponement .
Tiger Woods found himself getting ready for the Masters subconsciously despite knowing that the tournament wasn’t going to be played on Easter weekend. In an interview that aired with Jim Nantz during CBS’ replay coverage of the 2019 final round of the Masters, Woods said that he “didn’t realize” that he was getting himself ready for a tournament that wasn’t going to be held on its scheduled date. “I was out practicing and subconsciously getting ready. I didn’t realize I was getting ready. I just wanted to go out there and have some fun, hit some balls and get out of the house,” Woods said. “It’s amazing.
