ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Peyton Manning has said good-bye to his pro football playing days.
His voice cracking at times, the record-breaking quarterback said the time is right to end his 18-year NFL career. But he admitted he will miss the game.
Manning's retirement comes just a month after he helped the Broncos beat Carolina in Super Bowl 50, making him the first starting quarterback to lead two franchises to an NFL title. He also won one in his 14 seasons with the Colts.
Manning goes out with dozens of NFL records and five league MVP awards.
