According to Woody Paige of The Denver Post, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning will be making his decision on his future this upcoming week.
A lot of people were speculating if Super Bowl 50 would be Peyton Manning’s last game. It appears as if that is just a press conference away.
According to an article written by Woody Paige, the Broncos signal caller for the past four seasons is expected to announce his retirement from the NFL before the free agency period begins.
This does not come as much of a surprise. The two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback will turn 40 in March and he has not been completely healthy the past two seasons. He missed six games in the Super Bowl season with a foot injury.
Even though the decision has not been officially announced, we can expect that to happen in the next couple of days.
When the announcement becomes official, that will put the Broncos in an interesting spot at the quarterback position. The team will not be using the franchise tag on Brock Osweiler, but there is a chance the team resigns him.
However, if Osweiler does hit the free agency market, it will be quite an challenging situation for the Broncos going into the 2016 season. Especially with the quarterback market very limited for the free agency market.
Manning has done a lot for the Broncos organization in the four years he has been in Denver. Let us take a look at the accolades from his time in Denver.
Four Straight AFC West Championships
Two AFC Conference Championships
Two Super Bowl Appearances
One Super Bowl Championship
He also has quite a bit of individual accomplishments. Tied for first in wins as a starter, first in touchdown passes, and first place in passing yards.
I remember Manning coming into the league when I first started watching the game of American Football. He has been such a great competitor and an all around great guy.
The announcement has not been made official by the Denver Broncos or Peyton Manning himself just yet, so keep it here at Predominantly Orange as we keep you updated on the story as it continues to develop.
