Peyton Manning To Retire From The NFL Today (Video)
Posted by Steve on March 07 2016

Peyton Manning is retiring.  The Denver Broncos have confirmed that he told GM John Elway that he's going out a winner, just like Elway did after winning his second Super Bowl for the Broncos back in 1999.

Peyton will talk about it at a news conference today at 1:00 P.M. Eastern.  It was previously scheduled, but the team didn't know his decision until Saturday.

Manning could've earned $19 million next season, which would've been his 19th in the league, but his body just couldn't do it any more.  He turns 40 later this month, and he struggled through injuries all last season.

Peyton was a Super Bowl MVP in 2007, a 14-time Pro Bowl selection, and a seven-time first-team All-Pro.  His teams made the playoffs in 15 of his 18 seasons, and he reached the 4,000-yard passing mark in a record 14 different seasons.  '

He's the NFL's all-time leader in passing yards (71,940) and touchdown passes (539).  But the most remarkable thing he did was make his way back from a bunch of serious neck surgeries to go 50-15 with the Broncos, and make two trips to the Super Bowl in four seasons.
