Broncos dispute Manning retirement story, which is revised by the Denver Post


The Broncos have openly disputed an item in the Denver Post that reported Peyton Manning will retire.

Peyton has not made a decision on his future,” Broncos V.P. of public relations Patrick Smyth said on Twitter. “Plan remains for him to continue talks with the team this week.”

Meanwhile, the story from Woody Paige of the Post has been revised. The following sentence has been removed: “According to two sources, Manning will acknowledge his decision by the end of this week.” It now says this: “I’m told Manning will acknowledge his decision by the end of this week.”

The headline continues to declare that Manning “will ride off into the sunset.”

Maybe he will, but according to the Broncos that decision hasn’t been made. If it has been made, it hasn’t been communicated to the team.

    Team Manning, conniving and manipulating.

    Even the Broncos newspapers lie. Must be in the air up there.

    Good times.

    Who does he think he is, Brett Favre?

  5. bootguy says: Feb 27, 2016 10:48 PM

    This is the SAME Woody Paige that swore he would retire from writing sports if Jake Plummer didn’t bring the Super Bowl Title to Denver . That’s how SURE he was !!!

    This disputed report likley means he will retire.

  7. dontbeemo says: Feb 27, 2016 10:54 PM

    Not trolling, could this be a contract thing? How is his deal structured? Does a retirement result in a bonus payback? Serious question… anyone know what his deal looks like?

    This whole fake reporting of him retiring is gonna be the last nudge that makes him retire. Just imagine you’re Peyton and you’re contemplating it then all of a sudden the Denver post makes up a report that you’re retiring. Why would you wanna deal with the annoying media trying to rush for a story that they make stuff up all year.
    Btw what happened to that Dez Bryant tape pft?

    AARP demands an explanation!!!

    As a Viking fan, I have all the respect in the world for Peyton Manning. Crapping all over him with the childish insults just shows how small minded some of you people are. You only WISH you could be half as good in your professions as he was! Let the man retire with dignity. I’ll miss him not being in the NFL.

  11. thegreatgabbert says: Feb 28, 2016 12:29 AM

    Manning waiting for Kubiak and some of his teammates to drive down and talk him out of retirement. Don’t leave the porch light on, Payments, no one actually likes you.

    Peyton Manning had a great career. He is a lock for the Hall of Fame. Coming off the Super Bowl win, he should just call it quits. There is nothing left for him to prove or accomplish.

  13. fordmandalay says: Feb 28, 2016 1:09 AM

    Peyton knows that if he can squeeze out just one more season from somebody, he can grab another record even if he winds up 2-14. And he’d have to sell a LOT of bad tasting pizzas to equal one seasons salary.

  14. tgoat12 says: Feb 28, 2016 1:59 AM

    Hope he answers questions about taintgate during his press conference.

    This is going back to the 2014/15 season (the quad injury year), but I always felt like if Peyton decided to play 2015/16 for the WRONG reason–mainly, selfishness, i.e. claiming Favre’s last big statistical records, that somehow fate, the universe, the football gods, wouldn’t be kind to him.

    Did anyone else have those vibes, or see it now?

    Well done Payton! Your a class act in a classless world. Happy trails and God Bless you and yours. Ow ya and thanks for the Super bowl

  17. daviddmsvcp says: Feb 28, 2016 6:34 AM

    I guess we’ll just have to wait, to learn if Peyton will retire.

  18. pointtwopsiistheissue says: Feb 28, 2016 7:33 AM

    to avoid the 4 game suspension for HGH usage, he will retire.

  19. jets4everandever says: Feb 28, 2016 8:02 AM

    I think it’s true.. the broncos are mad that woody paige spilled the beans.. before they got a chance to announce doesn’t matter cause it will all come out this week..

  20. gorilladunk says: Feb 28, 2016 8:25 AM

    Woody’s sources are pretty good and I’d take him at his word on this one. Manning is probably the one who told him.

  22. cornerstone2001 says: Feb 28, 2016 9:23 AM

    He has to retire. if he takes any more HGH his giant head
    will explode. What a fraud. Go away and eat your chicken parm

  23. j0esixpack says: Feb 28, 2016 9:24 AM

    I hope he doesn’t retire.

    With a proper HGH regimine there’s really no reason he can’t play for a few more years.

  24. sc5000 says: Feb 28, 2016 9:25 AM

    The end game is the same, Manning wasn’t ever gonna be on the 2016 Broncos team.

  25. bostonfan4eva says: Feb 28, 2016 9:28 AM

    Retire already Peyton. Go out gracefully.Your old and done.

  26. tonebones says: Feb 28, 2016 9:32 AM

    Congratulations to one of the finest professional athletes in American history. Thanks Peyton for all the entertainment, even going all the way back to Tennessee. Since Manning has been playing, there have been a lot of young QBs that came into the league hoping to change the QB position, but in the end, some things never change. Fans love to argue about who’s the greatest of all times. That’s part of the fun of being a fan. Is Woods better than Nicholas? Is LeBron better than Michael? Is Manning better than Montana? Just being in the conversation is quite a compliment. The Manning family has to be very proud. Now, imagine if Joe Montana also had a brother that won two super bowls. Manning does. Wow! This has been an incredible delight to witness this awesome family, and what they’ve accomplished.

    A sure fire first ballot hall of famer, multiple super bowl winner from a great family….and there’s nothing Shaun King or Stephen A Smith can do about it.

  28. Bonerz'NPudz says: Feb 28, 2016 9:59 AM

    Why is this so secretive? We all know the guy is retiring. Tell this HGH injecting, sex abuser to pack it up and go home.

    Yes, you’re correct. Bradshaw does have more than Manning.
    Asterisks don’t count.

  30. cinzano08 says: Feb 28, 2016 11:44 AM

    I trust gas station sushi more than I trust anything coming from Manning, his old man and the Broncos.

    Just curious, but does Tommy boy always break his phone before he gets a new one?

    Great picture! Including the X.
