Video: Peyton Manning Calls Time On Illustrious Career With Emotional Speech

Peyton Manning called time on his incredible career tonight after 18 years in the NFL.

The iconic quarterback won his second Super Bowl after the Denver Broncos saw off the Carolina Panthers just a few weeks ago, but at a press conference in the Broncos’ training facility in Englewood, Colorado, he revealed that would be the final match of his career.

A global star, Manning leaves the game as one of its most popular and accomplished players with 71,940 passing yards and 251 touchdowns during a career with the Broncos and Indianapolis Colts.

He also managed to rack up an estimated $400 million dollars in career earnings – around $100 million more than any other player.

Manning, who turns 40 later this month, looked teary-eyed in the final moments of thet news conference, and became really choked up when he talked about how hard he prepared during his 18-year career.

With his voice breaking with emotion, he said:”When I look back on my NFL career I’ll know without a doubt that I gave everything I had to help my team walk away with a win.

“There were other players more talented, but there was no one who could outprepare me. And because of that I have no regrets.”
