INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts are reportedly trying to lure Peyton Manning back to the organization, but a source with Fox Sports says the hire is “unlikely.”

The Colts are looking to make Manning the head of football operations and pair him with Jon Gruden as coach despite Chuck Pagano expected to return next season.

Manning played 13 seasons with the Colts and was an 11-time Pro Bowler and won one championship in Indianapolis.

He played four seasons with the Broncos, winning four AFC West titles, two AFC championships and Super Bowl 50 before retiring in March.
