The Denver Broncos held a press conference yesterday so that quarterback Peyton Manning could announced his retirement. Manning played 18 seasons in the NFL, the last four with the Broncos. He is coming off a Super Bowl victory in February.
Manning will go down in history as one of the greatest QB's to ever play the game. He holds numerous passing records. He also brought a certain level of intelligence to the game that made him such a great quarterback.
Manning leaves the sport on top. Injuries slowed him down, but he was still able to finish the season as a champion. He can now write the rest of his story, whether it be as a coach, announcer or in somebody's front office. Manning left a legacy in Denver, Indianapolis and the rest of the NFL
Manning's retirement could leave the Broncos in a bad situation. They gave the franchise tag to Von Miller, which means Brock Osweiler is now a free agent. If the Broncos want to take another trip back to the Superbowl they must make signing Osweiler a priority in the off season.
