The latest ManningCast provided lots of entertainment as usual
TOM Brady has convinced NFL fans he’s missing the gridiron.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion, 46, recently said he would sign up for a matchup between former and current Pro Bowlers, an idea put forward by his ex-teammate Chad Johnson.

Johnson, 45, suggested the NFL should introduce the past-versus-present format for next year’s Pro Bowl in Monday’s appearence on Peyton and Eli Manning’s alternate Monday Night Football telecast.
“I just think it would be fun to have players from the era before playing the young kids,” the 2006 receiving yards leader said on the ManningCast.
“I think it would be dope.”
While Eli appeared to have mixed feelings, Peyton liked the proposal.
Johnson then said he would pick the ex-Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos star as his quarterback.
Peyton brought Brady into the conversation, saying the three-time NFL MVP hasn’t sworn off football despite retiring from the field in February.
“I know he’s got some secret bunker where he’s throwing routes,” the 14-time Pro Bowler said, referring to the $11.5 million mansion his ex-rival is building in Miami, Florida.
It didn’t take long for Brady to respond.
“With today’s rules? Give me Chad and Randy [Moss] on the outside and we’re putting up 35 next week,” the former New England Patriots star wrote Tuesday while sharing a clip of Johnson’s MNF appearence.
“The bunker is no secret Peyton, come get some work in.”
And NFL fans claimed they detected a hint of nostalgia in Brady’s remark.
“You are itching to go back on the field. Be honest,” one wrote, adding a laughing emoji.
“Why did you retire then?” another added.
“Make a return Brady. You only live once. Do the impossible. That’s your next challenge,” a third said.
“Yk you can just join like 20 NFL teams instantly,” one wrote.
Brady said he retired “for good” when he bid goodbye to the NFL for the second time.
Meanwhile, the most recent ManningCast was at its entertaining best as usual.
The alternate MNF telecast featured Peyton singing play-by-play as Miami Dolphins star Tua Tagovailoa played the guitar and NFL host Kay Adams screaming as she watched the Cincinnati Bengals score a touchdown.
