Paige: You can expect Peyton Manning to return to Broncos
According to three trustworthy sources, Manning wants to return to the Broncos, but won’t and can’t make a final decision until he takes an annual physical examination mandated by his contract. Last year, the test results were learned at the beginning of March. The Broncos have requested that Manning let them know his plans by March 9 — the day before teams must exercise their rights on veteran players under contract.
Per Woody, Manning has many reasons to come back, including the desire for another SB ring, legacy, all-time passing records, and money.
