While Saturday’s agent told Ian Rapoport of that it’s “possible” his client returns to the NFL, it’s “not likely” to happen at this point. Texted with Jeff Saturday's agent. Told return is "possible, not likely." He came out healthy. Broncos haven't called, he doesn't see it — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 29, 2013 Saturday’s agent, Ralph Cindrich, added that the Broncos had yet to reach out to his client. By all accounts, Saturday would be able to play health-wise, as Cindrich did say that the 14-year veteran ended his career healthy. Still, it remains to be determined if he would want to step away from his current analyst gig with ESPN to retake the gridiron. Saturday and Manning teamed up with the Indianapolis Colts for 13 years. He then joined the Green Bay Packers last season, and elected to retire following the campaign.
