Quarterback Peyton Manning to Retire, Will Announce Decision Monday
Super Bowl winning quarterback and five time NFL MVP Peyton Manning is reportedly set to retire, the Denver Broncos have confirmed.
“When you look at everything Peyton has accomplished as a player and person, it’s easy to see how fortunate we’ve been to have him on our team,” John Elway, Broncos Executive Vice President of Football Operations and General Manager, said in a statement. “Peyton was everything that we thought he was and even more—not only for the football team but in the community. I’m very thankful Peyton chose to play for the Denver Broncos, and I congratulate him on his Hall of Fame career.”
Peyton and his team the Denver Broncos just won Super Bowl 50 a few weeks ago, and it was unclear whether or not Peyton would play another season. Peyton will be turning 40 years old later this month.
