Peyton Manning Retires
On Monday, March 7th, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning officially announced retirement. He attended college and played football at the University of Tennessee. Manning started his NFL career in 1998, when he was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts as quarterback. Manning  won one Super Bowl while he was playing for the Colts. In 2012, he was a free agent and then signed to play for the Denver Broncos after meeting with their general manager and former quarterback, John Elway. Manning and the Broncos had made it to the 48th Super Bowl but had lost to the Seattle Seahawks with a score of 43-8. His last Super Bowl appearance was in Super Bowl 50, where the Broncos took on the Carolina Panthers, and beat them with a score of 24-10. It was after this last victorious win that he decided it was time to quit the game. Peyton Manning set the all-time record for most passing touchdowns in an NFL career, having 5 MVP awards, and most passing yards (71,940), and many more awards. He is now one of many quarterbacks to join the Hall of Fame.
