Following the season-ending injury suffered by Denver
Broncos center Dan Koppen, people began speculating that Jeff Saturday could
come out of retirement to once again team up with quarterback Peyton Manning.
While Saturday’s agent told Ian Rapoport of NFL.com 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

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.
