Peyton Manning has had one heck of a career as a professional quarterback, spanning over 18 seasons and setting several records, even winning a couple of Super Bowl rings — including the Denver Broncos big win this year!
Well Peyton's time as a professional athlete has finally come to an end as the Broncos held a press conference on Monday afternoon for the 39-year-old to talk about his retirement.
In the speech, Manning gets quite emotional talking about his career from his first days in the NFL to all the wonderful players and coaches he's encountered over the years. The QB even talks about growing up in New Orleans and how grateful he is to the Indianapolis Colts.
