Wednesday February 10th, 2016

Denver Broncos linebacker and Super Bowl MVP Von Miller says he believes quarterback Peyton Manning will return to the team next season. 

Manning, 39, is considering retirement. He said after the Super Bowl that he'd think about his decision for a few days before announcing. 

Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Miller said that Manning still has enough in the tank to succeed on the field. 

“I don’t think he’s going to retire,” Miller said. “He still has the physical ability and the mental ability to go out there and be great. I think he still has a little bit left in him.”

This season, Manning started just nine regular season games due to injuries, throwing for 2,249 yards with nine touchdowns and 17 interceptions. 

The Broncos defeated the Panthers 24–10 in Super Bowl 50.
