Manning wants to play out his contract for Denver Broncos

Per Vic Lombardi of CBS 4, Peyton Manning wants to play out his contract in Denver.

Manning would enter the final year of his five year deal he signed with the Broncos in 2012 if he were to return for a 19th NFL season.

This report comes the same day that Manning himself said he feels like a “young 39 year old” and doesn’t view 2015 as a ‘farewell tour’.

If this is in fact what Manning wants to do, it could make this weekend’s draft a bit more interesting for the Broncos. Brock Osweiler is currently playing his final season of his rookie deal and if Manning were to play another season past this year, Brock may not be easy to re-sign.

Although Manning’s decision to play in 2016 may not be completely up to him. If Denver wanted to move on from Peyton, they would be able to cut Manning by June 1, 2016 and only take a hit of $2.5 million in dead money.

The 2015 QB draft class is a weak one, but Denver may want to look into spending one of their ten selections on a signal caller.
