Peyton Manning retiring after 18-year career
Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is retiring from the NFL.
Manning is going out on top after helping the Broncos win the Super Bowl this year.
“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.”
The decision came as the Broncos faced a Wednesday deadline in which Manning would be guaranteed $19 million from Denver for the 2016 National Football League season if he remained on the team’s roster.
Manning had an 18-year career that included two Super Bowl titles, five most valuable player awards and a handful of passing records.
He also became the first starting quarterback to win a Super Bowl with two different teams.
