Peyton retires after his amazing career

Phillip Anderson

Peyton Manning was a gift to the NFL and that gift was used to the best of its abilities. Peyton Manning was born into a family of famous quarterbacks. Archie Manning, his father, played football for the Saints and wore the number 18 during his time. Manning played football since high school which quickly saw he had something special in him. Of course they were right as he will be remembered as one of the legends to play football and as an idol for younger quarterbacks out there.

Peyton was drafted into the league by the Indianapolis Colts as number one overall pick in 1998. He played for the Colts from 1998 to 2012 before he was later traded to the Denver Broncos where he continued to break many of records that made his career so special. He ended his career by announcing his retirement after he won Super Bowl 50 in 2016, similar to the time when the Broncos won the Super Bowl back in 1778 and John Elway retired and got a Super Bowl walk off win. So it was just right for Peyton to restore honor to the team by retiring in the same manner as John Elway.

Peyton Manning came into the league at the age of 22 from the University of Tennessee and finished his career with the Denver broncos at the age of 39. Peyton’s legacy will live on for a very long time.
