Manning will retire. I can't say I'm surprised or upset. He was great with us for a few years but over the last year and a half he has shown that he doesn't have much left in the tank. Farewell to one of the all time greats of the game. Let's please not turn this thread into a discussion about Manning. He was a Bronco and he retired, so I am reporting it. If you want to bash his career, start a thread somewhere else or go find one of the 50 other ones already in existence.
In other news, Broncos reportedly offer Osweiler $45 million over three years. I think the price tag is very high for him there, but considering what else is out there the Broncos don't have much choice. Brock already knows the system and started 7 games last year, so he has some chemistry with many of our players already. Apparently the contract offer has several incentives in there as well as part of the $45 million, which is good news if he takes it. He's worth $15 million a year if he performs well, but he's still a big risk at this point for that money. The big question is whether or not he'll take the deal. He's probably able to make more money somewhere else, but nowhere else can you find a QB opening for a team as good as Denver. Anywhere else he goes (except maybe Houston or NYJ) he would have to expect several years of building before becoming a real contender.
The team is still talking about trying to resign Jackson, and restructure contracts for Ware and Clady. We'll see what happens.
Fuck! I'm happy Manning retired. I was getting worried that he was gonna Favre this mofo!
There is still plenty of time for that type of situation.
