Peyton Manning reportedly will announce retirement within week

(FoxNews.com) - Denver Broncos quarterback and two-time Super Bowl champion Peyton Manning reportedly will announce his retirement within the next week.

Manning, who turns 40 next month, is not expected to continue his illustrious football career with another team as the Broncos look to move on by focusing their attention to backup Brock Osweiler, two sources told The Denver Post.

The plan to complete Manning’s retirement decision was set in motion when he met with Broncos executive John Elway this past week, the Post reported.

The former No. 1 overall pick is coming off a Super Bowl win with the Broncos earlier this month. Denver defeated the Carolina Panthers 24-10. Manning was 13-of-23 passing with 141 yards and an interception in the game. Linebacker Von Miller won Super Bowl MVP.
