Peyton Manning was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts and their owner Jim Irsay would like him to retire with the Colts.
“I want him to and I’ve asked him to,” Irsay told Anthony Calhoun of WISH-TV in Indianapolis. “I would love to have him retire as a Colt and how he handles that part of his career.”
Irsay is rooting for a happy ending to his former quarterback’s career.
“I told Peyton right after the (AFC Championship Game) everyone here is so excited, and it’s so deserving because I don’t think anyone is more respected by everyone in the game, meaning you guys in the media to the players on the field he’s playing against,” Irsay added. “It’s just so deserving, it really is.”
It would be extremely hard not to see Peyton retiring a Colt.
