Rob Lowe Mocked For 'Reporting' Peyton Manning Retirement News

Rob Lowe became the target of Indianapolis Colts fans and sports reporters everywhere after he shared a scoop that Peyton Manning was set to retire.

"Hearing my fave, #18 Peyton Manning will not return to NFL. Wow," the 'Parks and Recreations' star shared on Twitter.

After NFL Network anchor Rich Eisen told him to "get out," Lowe said it was true but he couldn't reveal his sources.

"My people are saying Manning will retire today," he said. "What do you hear?"

But rather than take Lowe's 'scoop' seriously, NFL Network reporter Kara Henderson couldn't help laughing.

"Watching our newsdesk chase down Rob Lowe rumor is very comical... to me anyhow," she quipped. "Think Chad Lowe has any insight on Eli Manning's illness?"

"He isn't retiring. I think he would've told me," dad Archie Manning told ESPN a few hours later.

Peyton's agent joked with the NFL Network that if Manning was retiring then it was news to him.

Even Colts owner Jim Irsay got in on the act and created his own rumor: "My sources tell me Rob will star in an epic remake of 'Deep Throat' with aging porn stars and 4 finger circus clowns!"

In an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show yesterday, the talk show host asked him for the source of the story.

"Ellen, I could tell you but then I'd have to kill you," Lowe replied.
