INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (February 27, 2016) – Woody Paige of the Denver Post is reporting Peyton Manning will announce his retirement from the NFL this coming week.
Paige cites two unnamed sources in the report, confirming Manning’s impending decision.
His Bronc riding days are over; the last rodeo is done.
Peyton Manning is saying goodbye; it’s been lots of fun.
I’m told Manning will acknowledge his decision by the end of this week.
In all probability, Peyton, who will turn 40 on March 24, is leaving the Broncos and retiring from the game he has played competitively for 29 years.
It’s implausible that Manning would opt to sign with another team for one season.
Manning is currently under contract with the Denver Broncos through next season, when he is due $19 million.
