Report: Colts will honor Peyton Manning on March 18
The Indianapolis Colts will honor Peyton Manning on March 18 at the team’s complex, reports Bob Kravitz of WTHR.com.
Manning, who will turn 40 later this month, retired from professional football as a member of the Denver Broncos on Monday.
Manning spent the first 14 seasons of his career with the Colts. Indianapolis selected him with the No. 1 overall pick of the 1998 draft, and Manning led the franchise to much success.
Among Manning’s accomplishments with the Colts include a streak of seven straight seasons with at least 12 wins, two Super Bow appearances and one Super Bowl win. During his time with the Colts, Manning won four MVP awards and set a single-season record for touchdown passes, which he has since broken.
Manning’s retirement comes after his second championship, a Super Bowl 50 win with the Broncos. In his career, the former Tennessee Volunteer threw for over 70,000 yards, with 539 touchdowns and a career passer rating of 96.5
