Woody Paige of the Denver Post is reporting that Peyton Manning has decided to retire according to two unnamed sources and will likely make the announcement some time next week.
According to two sources, 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.
It was highly unlikely that Manning was going to play another season considering the terrible year he had last season. Winning the Super Bowl gave him the storybook ending that he wanted and now he can leave on a high note.
