Colts owner Jim Irsay confirmed Saturday that Peyton Manning is not a candidate to replace Ryan Grigson at GM.
He also insisted that coach Chuck Pagano's job is safe, at least for 2017. Multiple sources have reported that Irsay was aggressively pursuing Manning before he fired Grigson, but it doesn't seem like the interest was mutual. Jimmy Raye III has taken over as the Colts' interim GM and has a good chance of retaining the full-time gig. Jan 22 - 8:36 AM

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports Colts owner Jim Irsay has made a "strong push" to hire Peyton Manning as head of football operations.

The report also confirms the Colts attempted to hire Jon Gruden to replace Chuck Pagano. Gruden turned down the offer, but Irsay is "still hopeful" to get Manning. The moves had been previously rumored, and it's clear Irsay is looking to shake up Indy's power structure. The Colts interest in Manning keeps GM Ryan Grigson's status up in the air.

ProFootballTalk reports Peyton Manning has zero plans to play in 2016.

Manning has been casually linked to the Vikings following Teddy Bridgewater's Tuesday injury, but it's not going to happen for a million different reasons. There's a 100 percent chance Manning has played his final NFL snap.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the NFL has determined Peyton Manning did not use HGH or any other performance-enhancing drugs.

Manning was implicated along with several other players in an Al Jazeera America report from December. The NFL determined there was "no credible evidence" the allegations were true after seven months of investigation. This development should be great news for James Harrison, Julius Peppers, Clay Matthews, and the other players implicated in the report, who have all submitted written statements declaring their innocence to the league office. The NFL still wants to interview each player.

Peyton Manning will announce his retirement Monday in Denver.

Manning had one year left on his contract, but he's content to walk away after winning his second Super Bowl last month against Carolina. Announcing his retirement now is the right call as Manning likely would have been cut ahead of free agency. He'll go down as arguably the best regular season quarterback of all time with five MVP awards, 14 Pro Bowl nods, and a league record 539 career touchdown passes. Manning's exit paves the way for Brock Osweiler to become the new starter, assuming the Broncos can re-sign him.

The Denver Post's Troy Renck reports "the Broncos, for all intents and purposes, have moved on" from Peyton Manning.

Manning has yet to decide his playing future, but it has become apparent he will not be back with the Broncos regardless of his retirement decision. Denver did not even ask Manning to come in for a physical before Friday's deadline to do so, and they are actively trying to re-sign Brock Osweiler. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported "in a perfect world" Manning would "like to keep playing." For what it is worth, Renck reports Manning spoke about his career in the present tense during a speech Friday night.

NFL Network's James Palmer reports the Broncos have yet to inform Peyton Manning that they will cut him if he continues his career.

Per Palmer, the Broncos will "allow Manning to decide his future and they'll go from there." There's a school of thought Manning is trying to force his release, but at the very least, the Broncos are going to make him declare his intentions first. If Manning decides to keep on chugging, the odds seem long that he returns to Denver.
Thu, Mar 3, 2016 05:05:00 PM

In an interview with ESPN's Mike and Mike, Adam Schefter said "in a perfect world" Peyton Manning would "like to keep playing."

Schefter said the understanding is Manning will not be back in Denver regardless, so his decision will come down to his other opportunities. Schefter reports the Texans and Rams are not interested, and it is unclear if Manning is willing to move again this late in his career. Manning should have opportunities in television if he decides to retire, and Schefter believes Manning will eventually end up in an NFL front office. Manning dragging out his retirement decision this long suggests he is serious about continuing his career, but it does not appear the options are there. Retirement is still the most likely outcome.

NFL Network's James Palmer reports Peyton Manning is not expected to make his retirement decision this week.

The Denver Post reported Manning will retire, but they have waffled on that report somewhat since Saturday. GM John Elway has said there is no deadline for Manning, but the reality is the Broncos need to know by March 9, which is when Manning's contract becomes guaranteed and free agent Brock Osweiler is free to sign elsewhere. It remains likely Manning retires. Even if he does not, it is difficult to see the Broncos paying him $19 million this season.

A source tells Profootballtalk Peyton Manning hasn't made a decision on retirement.

The Denver Post's Woody Paige reported Manning will retire, but the Broncos still haven't been informed of his final plans. Manning is expected to meet with club officials late next week. FOX Sports reports the Broncos are moving forward in contract talks without counting Manning's $19 million salary.

The Denver Post reports Peyton Manning will retire.

He's expected to announce his decision late next week. The move isn't a surprise after Manning struggled to hold up physically last year. Despite posting career lows, Manning will go out on top with his second Super Bowl win. A first-ballot Hall of Famer, Manning is the all-time leader in touchdowns (539) and passing yards (71,940). His retirement saves Denver $19 million in cap space.

Speaking Thursday, Broncos GM John Elway said Peyton Manning "still needs more time" on his retirement decision.

"So we're going to afford him that time," Elway said. It's more than a little surprising that Manning is taking so long. It suggests he's genuinely considering returning for another season. One month shy of his 40th birthday, Manning was arguably the worst quarterback in the league in 2015. He's a fierce competitor, but riding off into the sunset is probably the right call.
Thu, Feb 25, 2016 04:10:00 PM

According to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, Peyton Manning will have options if he decides to keep playing.

He's already been linked to Los Angeles, while Volin believes Peyton joining the quarterback-needy Texans "makes a lot of sense." The likeliest scenario is still for Manning to call it quits. Manning doesn't have much left physically, and the Broncos' organization needs to move in a different direction.
Sun, Feb 14, 2016 09:26:00 AM

Broncos GM John Elway said there is "no deadline" for Peyton Manning to make his retirement decision.

Manning said Monday he plans to take "a few" weeks to make his decision. He will likely decide to retire, but if not he will put Elway in a tough spot. Manning is set to count $21.5 million against the cap, and his recent play does not justify that kind of hit. With his $19 million base salary set to guarantee on March 9, the Broncos need Manning to make his decision in the next month.
Tue, Feb 9, 2016 11:55:00 AM

On the TODAY Show, Peyton Manning said he will not make his decision on retirement for "a few more weeks."

"I'll keep doing it for a few more weeks, and then, at the appropriate time, I think I'll make a decision," Manning said. "I have to tell you, though, I'm very much at peace with it." Manning has cited former coach Tony Dungy's advice not to make an emotional decision as his reason for delaying the announcement. With the script perfectly written, it would be surprising if Manning did not retire.
