Peyton Manning announced his retirement on Monday, March 7th. After winning 2 Super Bowl trophies and a record 5 MVP awards, he has decided to end his phenomenal football career.
Manning is the only quarterback in history to win two Super Bowls for two separate franchises. He became a star when he started his career with the Indianapolis Colts. In 2011, he was released from the Colts and sent to the Denver Broncos.
His talent faded slightly towards the end of his career due to his injured arm and foot. However, he still led the Broncos to victory in the 50th Super Bowl. Manning is retiring as as the all-time leader with 539 regular-season touchdown passes and 71,940 yards.
“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,” Broncos general manager John Elway said in a statement.
Congratulations to Peyton on his legacy in football and his retirement.
