The show, which debuted on Netflix earlier this year, was wildly successful and has already been approved for a second season. However, a number of QBs are understood to have rejected the opportunity to be featured.
Still, it’s been a struggle for Peyton to get another trio of signal-callers, with the deadline to secure names coming up on him.

“I think maybe some guys are thinking that it is going to be a distraction, even though I told a couple of them, ‘I guarantee you’ll win the Super Bowl like Mahomes if you do it.’ ”
The 2023 NFL season kicks off this Thursday, so Peyton’s definitely running out of time.
