The newspaper reported Manning met with Denver Broncos general manager John Elway, and that “Manning is certain” the time has come to call it a day.

Manning helped the Denver Broncos defeat the Carolina Panthers in the Super Bowl earlier this month.

The victory was his second NFL Championship in a career in which he was named the league’s MVP 5 times in 17 seasons, 13 with the Indianapolis Colts and four with the Broncos.

Manning, who turns 40 on March 24, said after the game that he would contemplate his future before making an announcement, and it has been widely assumed that he’ll retire.

“I met with Peyton a couple nights ago and we had a good talk,” Bronco’s GM Elway said.

“As I said after the game, we’ll give him as much time as he needs. He still needs some more time so we’re going to afford him that time. He deserves it after 18 years in this league.”
