They got a step closer Tuesday, agreeing to a deal to bring kicker Kai Forbath back on a one-year deal, according to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
Forbath hit a career-high 32 field goals last year (of 38 tries, a solid 84 percent), after going 15-of-15 for them in seven games in 2016.

According to Michael McCarthy of Sporting News, Manning is expected to make a decision this week regarding the pending offer from FOX to serve as the lead analyst for Thursday Night Football. Per the report, Manning had a soft deadline of last Friday for telling FOX yes or no.
FOX reportedly is willing to pay Manning $10 million or more per year, a staggering amount that would eclipse by $3.5 million the salary paid by ESPN to former Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden.

Having Manning on board for that would be useful for FOX; having anyone on board will be critical.
