NFL Total Access cameras were at midfield following the Broncos victory against the Patriots last weekend when Peyton Manning embraced Bill Belichick and Tom Brady for what may be the final time as an NFL player. It has been long assumed that this would be Peyton’s final season, although some reporters thought he may consider one more season, but he may have just confirmed retirement in this clip. You can hear him say, “Hey Listen… This might be my last rodeo, so, it sure has been a pleasure”.
Of course Peyton uses the term “rodeo”…he is “The Sheriff” according to ESPN talking heads who recently gave him the nickname and now call him that every 30 seconds. HGH or not – Peyton is a class act with one last chance at a 2nd ring, where he can tie little brother Eli for the family lead with two rings.
