Last month, quarterback Peyton Manning said he’ll be back in 2015, if the Broncos want him. This month, Manning is saying something slightly different than that.
“That’s kind of what I’ve said all along,” Manning explained initially regarding his intent to play next season, via the Denver Post. Then he said something other than what he has said all along. “I can’t answer every what-if circumstance. What if you’re not as healthy? What if certain coaches leave? I can’t answer every what-if situation. I think I’ll have to take some time to see how I feel, see how I feel physically.”
The Broncos will want to know sooner than later whether he’ll be back, so that they can make plans accordingly. Both regarding who’ll play quarterback and how they’ll spend the $19 million that otherwise would go to Peyton.
