Report: Peyton Manning could decide on playing future this week


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2:55 pm ET) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning may be making his decision sooner rather than later. The soon to be 39-year-old Manning is reportedly set to make his decision as early as this week, according to ESPN NFL Insider Chris Mortensen.

Manning, who has already met with new coach Gary Kubiak, said last week he was waiting to meet with John Elway when he got back from vacation before making up his mind.

Manning, who threw for 4,727 yards and 39 touchdowns in 2014, is due $19 million guaranteed if he is still on the team March 9.


Tom Brady on Peyton Manning: 'I certainly hope he comes back'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2015) While the football world anxiously awaits official word from Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning about his playing status for the 2015 season, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady -- and longtime Manning rival -- said Thursday he hopes the five-time NFL MVP will continue his career.

"What a great player he's been for this league," Brady said Thursday, per NFL.com. "He's a great competitor, and I've been fortunate to play against him a bunch of times. I certainly hope he comes back, 'cause the league will miss him if he doesn't. But those decisions are up to him. I'm sure it's up to whether he's mentally and physically -- that's what he wants to do. But I certainly hope he's back."

Archie Manning, Peyton's father, told NFL Network on Thursday that his son hasn't made a decision yet.

"Well, Peyton evaluates things; he's pretty good at that," he said. "I can't tell him what to do, and he hasn't told me what he's going to do. But I do know that he's really giving a lot of things a lot of thought. He's thinking about where he is physically, he wants to see how he can do this some more, trying to get over an injury."

Archie added starting over with new Broncos coach Gary Kubiak will not be an issue for Peyton, if he decides to return next season.

"Yeah, but he loves Gary. He likes Gary," Archie Manning said. "He liked John Fox. He liked Adam Gase. All those things, I think, are considered with. But my deal is he's always made good decisions; he's pretty thorough. He's going to evaluate a lot of things, and I think he'll make a good decision."


WR Emmanuel Sanders says Peyton Manning will return to Broncos


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2015) Although Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders' only communication with Peyton Manning was through a postseason text message, he believes that the veteran quarterback will return for another season, he told NFL.com on Friday.

Sanders and the Broncos were eliminated by the Colts in the AFC divisional round. Since that loss, the Broncos' coaching staff has been overhauled, with coach John Fox and offensive coordinator Adam Gase heading to Chicago.

"Well, Gase is definitely in Chicago right now," Sanders said. "And Peyton says he's going to come back, but I'm not really worried about it, I really just want to win a Super Bowl. So that is all that is on my mind."

Gary Kubiak was hired to take Fox's place in Denver, and Sanders said that if Manning doesn't return, backup Brock Osweiler would fit "really well" in the team's new offensive scheme.

"Yeah, I think Brock is a quarterback that is on the rise, he's going to continuously get better and I feel like Kubiak's offense fits him really well," Sanders said.

Sanders signed a three-year, $15 million contract with the Broncos last March. He earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl after totaling 101 catches for 1,404 yards and nine touchdowns -- all career highs.


Report: Peyton Manning aims to return for 2015 season


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning wants to return for the 2015 season but can't make a final decision until he takes his annual physical, three sources told the Denver Post. Manning will await tests on his neck and the quad injury that bothered him at the end of the season, the report said.

Late in the regular season, Manning indicated he'd definitely return. But after losing in the playoffs to the Colts, Manning was noncommittal.

Manning, 38, is set to make $19 million in 2015. New coach Gary Kubiak said he's already had some "very good conversations" with Manning and is looking forward to building a playbook around Manning's talents, assuming he returns.

Last year, the paper said, the results of Manning's physical were ready in early March.


Gary Kubiak: 'Easy to build a playbook' for Peyton Manning


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Introduced as Broncos head coach Tuesday, Gary Kubiak dismissed the notion that Peyton Manning is not a fit for the West Coast offense Kubiak runs. Kubiak stressed he'll build a scheme around his players' talents, not fit them into a rigid system.

"It's easy to build a playbook for him," Kubiak said of Manning. "He's been the master at it for many, many years. You're talking about a Hall of Fame player, Hall of Fame person."

Manning certainly isn't suited for the bootlegs and rollouts Kubiak is fond of. Kubiak said he views his role as being "the best support system" he can be for Manning.

"We're going to do what the players do best," Kubiak said.

Kubiak said he's already talked to Manning extensively, mainly about family and non-football issues. Manning, who must decide by March 9 whether he'll return next season, will undergo a physical next month that could affect his decision.

Kubiak said he embraces the high expectations in Denver and thanked team ownership for "bringing me home." The former Ravens offensive coordinator and Texans head coach said he loves calling plays but "if things work out," others will be involved in playcalling.


Peyton Manning likely to make playing status decision by March 9


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has a deadline of March 9 to make a decision about his playing status for the 2015 season, according to The Denver Post.

The March 9 deadline is significant because Manning's contract stipulates that his $19 million salary for the 2015 season becomes fully guaranteed, if he is still on the Broncos' roster by the final day of the 2014 league year. The new 2015 season begins on March 10.

Manning is scheduled to undergo a physical toward the end of February, which could determine if he is healthy enough to play in 2015, according to NFL Network. 


Report: Broncos' Peyton Manning remains uncertain of future


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/18/2015) One week after his season ended, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning remains undecided about his future in the NFL, reports the NFL Network.

Manning is scheduled to undergo a physical in one month to determine if he is healthy enough to play in 2015. With reports surfacing Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak plans to accept a potential offer to be the Broncos' coach, it is not known how Kubiak will affect Manning’s decision.


Broncos' Peyton Manning to miss Pro Bowl due to quad injury


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/18/2015) Despite being selected to his 14th Pro Bowl, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning will not play in next Sunday’s game, reports the Denver Post.

A quad injury, which bothered Manning during the last month of the season, will keep him from playing in the game. It will be the first time Manning has missed the Pro Bowl without going to the Super Bowl. He indicated had he been healthy, he would like to play.

"It's a great honor to be selected to the Pro Bowl, and I've always taken the obligation to play in it very seriously," Manning said. "I've believed that, if healthy, it's a player's responsibility to play in the game because of what it means to be voted in by your peers and the fans."


Report: Broncos' Adam Gase to meet with Jaguars for OC job


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/17/2015) Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase is scheduled to interview for the Jaguars' vacant offensive coordinator position, reports Michael Silver of NFL.com. A date for his meeting was not made public.

Gase lost out on the 49ers' coaching job, but he remains in the mix for Denver's coaching vacancy. He is also in demand from other teams with coordinator openings, including the Rams and Jaguars. Under Gase, the Peyton Manning-led Broncos scored 30.1 points per game, which ranked second in the NFL. In 2013, Gase's unit ranked first in the league with 37.9 points per game.


Broncos' Ware: I think Peyton Manning will be back in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) Broncos defensive end DeMarcus Ware is confident quarterback Peyton Manning will choose to continue his NFL career in 2015, according to USA Today.

"Me and Peyton will always talk back and forth about things. Now he's just looking forward to the next season and how we can get better," Ware said Thursday. "I think he'll be back. I feel like he still has a couple years in him."

Manning, who will turn 39 years old on March 24, was noncommittal about his future following Sunday's playoff loss against the Colts. 

"He just needs time to get healthy, rest," Ware said. "Calm the brain down. Turn it off a little bit and then hit the restart button once it's time."


Elway: New coach will likely have to wait for Manning's decision


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2015) The next coach of the Denver Broncos is unlikely to know what the decision of quarterback Peyton Manning will be on his future by the time he is hired, and general manager John Elway is okay with that.

"There’s no question candidates are going to want to know where Peyton is," Elway said. "At that point in time I’m going to say the same thing I’m telling you all right now, we don’t know exactly what he’s going to do. We just have to wait and see, you know, and go from there." 

Elway also said Tuesday he told Manning to take his time with the decision, as much as four to five weeks, very close to when the new league year is set to begin, March 10.

Manning is set to make a base salary of $19 million in 2015 and 2016 and has a cap number of $21.5 million for both years.


Report: Broncos prepared to go with Osweiler if Manning retires


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2015) The Broncos reportedly have a plan in place if star quarterback Peyton Manning decides to hang up his cleats. Current backup quarterback Brock Osweiler would take over as the starter, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

"I can tell you from sources inside the Broncos organization, this is a guy they feel very good about," Rapoport said. "The reviews internally on Brock Osweiler are high, so if Peyton Manning does not come back, they do feel confident that they have a quarterback who can step in and have some level of success in there after Peyton Manning, whenever he does decide to retire."

The Broncos drafted Osweiler in the 2012 draft and he has been used sparringly since then, throwing for 159 yards and one touchdown in 13 appearances for Denver.


Elway: Peyton Manning will be involved in search for new coach


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2015) Broncos general manager John Elway said quarterback Peyton Manning will be involved in the search for a new head coach, adding he believes Manning has another good year of football left, reports the Denver Post.

Speaking at a news conference, Elway said he'll give Manning several weeks to decide if he'll play in 2015. When asked if he thought Manning would help take the team to the next level, Elway replied, "I do."

"We want Peyton back," Elway said, per the paper. "It's going to come back to what Peyton wants to do.

"Only Peyton knows what his body feels," he added. "I can't speak for him and I won't."

Manning, 38, was noncommittal on his future following Sunday's 24-13 home playoff loss to the Colts. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Manning played with a torn quad since mid-December, though the Broncos described the injury as a strain.

Denver parted ways with coach John Fox on Monday. Elway said he and Fox "disagreed on how to get to the next level."

Elway said offensive coordinator Adam Gase and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio are candidates to replace Fox, though no interviews have been scheduled.


Broncos dispute that Peyton Manning played through torn quad


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2015) The Broncos are disputing an ESPN report that quarterback Peyton Manning played with a torn right quad for the final month of the season.

Two sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Manning tore his quad late in the first half of a Dec. 14 win against the Chargers and that an MRI confirmed the tear.

But the Broncos say Manning "played with a strain, not a full tear," according to the Denver Post. Coach John Fox and general manager John Elway will address the issue at a news conference this week.

Over the team's last four regular-season games and Sunday's playoff loss to the Colts, Manning accounted for four touchdowns and eight turnovers.

Manning was non-committal on playing in 2015 when asked about his future Sunday night.

"I can't answer every what-if circumstance," he told 850 KOA. "What if you're not as healthy? What if certain coaches leave? I can't answer every what-if situation. I think I'll have to take some time to see how I feel, see how I feel physically."

The team listed Manning with a thigh injury late in the season, but it was not described as a tear until Monday's report.


Peyton Manning not ready to commit to 2015 season


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2015) After suffering his 13th playoff loss, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning wasn't ready to commit to returning in 2015 for his 17th season.

"My mindset right now is just disappointment after today's game. I kind of need to process this game, and we'll meet tomorrow," Manning told reporters after Denver lost 24-13 at home to the Colts.

"I can't give that simple answer," he said when pressed further.

Before the playoffs, the 38-year-old indicated he'd return.

But in a postgame interview with 850 KOA, Manning said a lot of factors are in play.

"I can't answer every what-if circumstance," he said. "What if you're not as healthy? What if certain coaches leave? I can't answer every what-if situation. I think I'll have to take some time to see how I feel, see how I feel physically."

Manning averaged 4.6 yards per attempt against Indy as he was unable to connect deep with Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas. Manning completed 26 of 46 passes for 211 yards and a touchdown and lost a fumble.

Manning has two years left on his contract. He has a non-guaranteed salary of $19 million for next season.
