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.
