The oldest Calgary Stampeders player isn't ready for the rocking chair ... not yet, anyway.

Backup quarterback Danny McManus, 41, could return for an 18th CFL season after weighing his options this winter.

McManus saw limited action this season, completing 16 of 28 passes for 280 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.

While the Stamps could choose to release McManus during the off-season, he said he will make a decision about his own future in the upcoming months.

"Coach (Ron) Lancaster always said to never make a decision right after the season," McManus said.

"Wait a couple of months and see if you want to get back to working out, throwing the football and usually your body will tell you.

"You have to wait until things settle down and see what other opportunities are out there for you and decide which way to go."

McManus has done some work as a CFL colour commentator on TV. He has also expressed an interest in becoming involved in football administration.

"I want to do TV and I'm interested in seeing the other side of football, the business side," McManus said. "I've seen a lot of X's and O's. I want to see the game from a new viewpoint of marketing, getting people into the stands.

"I want to make sure playing the game is out of my system because I want to make sure that once I retire, I'm done.

"Not retire and then come back."
