While in Las Vegas, former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning shut down rumors of political career.

The former Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts player gave a keynote speech at the Adobe Summit Wednesday.

Manning's name was attached to a possible opening if Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander retires, according to the Denver Post. The rumors said Manning was eyeing the seat in 2020.

“I don’t know where that came from. Last week I was going to run a team, this week I going to apparently run for Senate, and next week I’ll be an astronaut,” Manning said. “I have no interest in the political world, but would like to continue serving communities.”
