Peyton Manning on retirement: ‘I haven’t made my mind up’

The first question Peyton Manning fielded during Monday’s Super Bowl Media Day was predictable. It was about the Broncos quarterback possibly retiring after Super Bowl 50.

Marshall Faulk, with the NFL Network, posed the question out of the gate and it wasn’t the only time it was asked.

“I don’t know the answer to that, Marshall,” Manning said after sitting down at his No. 6 podium at the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif.

Manning said he has focused on not looking too far ahead or too far in the past, that he is just trying to soak in the atmosphere surrounding his fourth Super Bowl appearance.


“I haven’t made my mind up and I don’t see myself knowing that until after the season,” Manning said later.

Manning also joked that after his 12-yard run against New England in the AFC Championship game, the Carolina Panthers will have to adjust their defensive scheme.

“There’s a good chance Carolina will drop somebody to spy me,” he said before cracking a smile.
