Manning's number to be retired during fall ceremony in Indy

Manning's number to be retired during fall ceremony in Indy

A statue of Peyton Manning will be unveiled and his number retired in October, the Indianapolis Colts announced today. 18 jersey will be retired and he will be inducted into the team's Ring of Honor at halftime of the October 8 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

In response to Tuesday's announcement, Manning said, "I am humbled, and I am grateful to Jim and the Irsay family for this tremendous honor". It was then that Irsay announced plans to retire Manning's jersey and commission the building of a statue in his honor outside the stadium, known to many Colts fans as "The House that Manning Built".

The following day, Manning's No. 18 jersey will officially be retired and he'll be inducted into the team's Ring of Honor during the Colts game against the San Francisco 49ers.

The Colts franchise has retired other jerseys, including: Raymond Berry (82), Art Donovan (70), Gino Marchetti (89), Lenny Moore (24), Jim Parker (77), John Unitas (19) and Buddy Young (22).

He'll also always be a Bronco (a team that won as many Super Bowls with Manning as the Colts), but that's beside the point. Manning finished his career in Denver, winning his final game in Super Bowl 50.

Manning spent the first 13 seasons of his NFL career in Indianapolis after being selected with the No. 1 overall pick in the 1998 NFL Draft. He played 14 magical seasons for the Colts, amassing 54,828 passing yards, 4,682 completions, and 399 passing touchdowns-all franchise records. At this time, Manning is the only quarterback in National Football League history to lead two teams to a Super Bowl title.
