One of the NFL’s best quarterbacks is calling it quits. Manning told the Broncos, Saturday night, that he is officially retiring. Manning said that his final season was the most interesting of his career. He missed seven games with a tear in his plantar fascia, he wore a cast for months and even was running the Scout team. Come January he was back as starting QB, winning the playoffs and the Super Bowl, wrapping up an incredible career.

“When you look at everything Peyton has accomplished as a player and person, it’s easy to see how fortunate we’ve been to have him on our team,” Broncos general manager John Elway said in a statement. “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.”
