Eli Manning to Follow Brother Peyton's Footsteps as 'Saturday Night Live' Host (PHOTOS)

Who says sport stars only shine on the field? Super Bowl champ Eli Manning is set to take on TV as Saturday Night Live's latest host. Airing May 5, Manning's episode will also feature Rihanna as the musical guest.

However, the 31-year-old New York Giants quarterback isn't the only athlete who has accepted the big gig. Tom Brady, Lance Armstrong, and even Eli's older brother, Peyton Manning, have all appeared on the sketch comedy show in the past.

In honor of Eli's comedic debut, we're taking a look back at other athletes who have hosted SNL

One footballer we want to see on SNL is none other than former Denver Broncos QB, Tim Tebow. With his recent move to the New York Jets, heading to studio 8H at 30 Rockefeller won't be that much of a commute, right?
