The man who bleeds Denver orange and Colts blue is now throwing his support behind Green Bay … with Peyton Manning, he’d REALLY like to see the Packers resolve the drama with Aaron Rodgers.

We got the future Hall of Famer out at Reagan National Airport on Wednesday … and he explained to us that he’d prefer it if Rodgers stayed put with the Packers.

“When I think of Aaron, I think of him as a Green Bay Packer,” Manning said. “Hopefully they can get it worked out.”

Of course, things currently aren’t looking super promising for GB in that department … because while Packers head coach Matt LaFleur has been begging for a Rodgers return, the star QB has been vacationing in Hawaii, seemingly dug in on his trade demands.

Manning — who had to famously leave the Colts for the Broncos at the end of his career — told us he knows a move could happen, but he’d really rather not see it.

“He’s done such a great job there in Green Bay,” Peyton said.

As for if Rodgers could — and perhaps should — leave it all behind to host “Jeopardy!” full-time … Manning didn’t seem to love that idea, explaining he thinks Aaron could do both!

By the way, when it comes to Manning’s own off-the-field endeavors … he still doesn’t sound ready to jump into a broadcast booth or an NFL general manager role — telling us he’s content just coaching kids in baseball and flag football for now.

Though he did admit, he’s had to do some explaining to parents given his history as a leader of children …
