After arguably the greatest career in the history of the National Football League, 18-year-veteran Peyton Manning will announce today that he is hanging up his cleats. Following his victory in Super Bowl 50, many suspected that Manning would retire, and the Denver Broncos organization announced Sunday that he will hold a 1 p.m. ET press conference Monday to do so.
Manning is finishing his career with two Super Bowl championships to his name, one with the Indianapolis Colts and one with the Broncos, as well as five NFL MVP Awards. He was elected to 14 Pro Bowls and was the 2013 Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year, throwing a total of 71,940 passing yards for first all-time in NFL history, slightly edging ironman Brett Favre. Manning also threw 539 touchdowns in 266 career games.
The retirement announcement will be broadcast on ESPN and the NFL Network at 1 p.m. ET live from Denver, Colorado, and people can watch the live stream using the WatchESPN app.
