According to a published report out in Denver, Peyton Manning is expected to announce his retirement within a week.
Elway told NFL.com on Thursday that he would not pressure his quarterback to make a decision and that the pair planned to meet again in the next week or so.
“I met with Peyton a couple nights ago and we had a good talk,” Elway said.
“As I said after the game, we’ll give him as much time as he needs. He still needs some more time so we’re going to afford him that time. He deserves it after 18 years in this league.”
Let’s hope that this picture will be basically his final one in a uniform going into the sunset with him winning the Super Bowl as opposed to coming back for one more try. There is nothing else for him to prove and coming back could only be seen a bad thing.
