Longtime Sports Illustrated NFL writer Peter King is thinking about leaving SI when his current contract ends this month. This according to Shane Newell of the Peninsula Press in California. Newell is a grad student at Stanford and chauffeured King around the San Francisco area during Super Bowl week in exchange for gaining full access to King.
King runs the wildly popular "Monday Morning Quarterback'' for SI.com, but might leave, telling Newell: "There are times when I say, 'This has become a monster and I really should sort of scale back.' "
King also appears regularly on NBC and said he might go to TV full-time, bringing his well-read column to NBC's web site. Nothing, however, is set.
