What happened to Peyton Manning and the Broncos?
It’s been almost a decade since Peyton Manning retired, but that hasn’t stopped the Broncos from looking to the future.
After winning the Super Bowl in 2009, Manning was invited to join the Broncos front office as an advisor and has since helped turn the franchise into one of the most exciting in football.
Now, it appears that he has his sights set on a return to the NFL after being released by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the offseason.
According to ESPN’s Mike Reiss, Manning’s agent, Robert Kraft, sent a text message to Broncos owner Pat Bowlen on Wednesday morning.
Manning has made it clear that he’s going to do whatever it takes to return to football, and his agent has already met with the league to discuss what they might do if he doesn’t sign with them in time.
The Broncos are currently in the process of trying to negotiate a contract with Manning to bring him back, and according to Reiss’ report, the sides are talking about a new contract.
Manning, who is owed a total of $40 million by the Steelers, is expected to get a raise of about $5 million next season, which would be a huge boost for him in his first contract.
