Former St Louis Rams wide receiver Torry Holt is in the UK this weekend to help promote the Super Bowl and he told GiveMeSport his thoughts on Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.

There have been rumors that Manning is on the verge of retirement after he said to New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick that this season might be his last, following a year that has seen him be hit by injuries and bad form.

Holt, who was drafted into the NFL the year after Peyton was in 1999, has given his verdict on the matter, and he believes if the Broncos win Super Bowl 50 this weekend against the Carolina Panthers, The Sheriff will retire.

He said: "If they win the Super Bowl, I think he will go out on a high note. Most professional players want to leave on a good note, winning it all, going out on a winning note, and I’m sure he would like that to happen. But with all of the injuries, the neck injuries he’s dealt with this year, I think the writing is on the wall that this could be it for him.

"I’m sure he will take into account his health and his family. By saying this is it at the end of the year if he decides to do that, I'm cool with that. I think he has had an outstanding career because his legacy is cemented whether he wins or loses. His legacy is what it is, and it’s pretty darn good."

If Manning does win the Super Bowl and does decide to leave the NFL after 18 seasons on Sunday, he will go out as one of the best quarterbacks ever to play the game of football. However, he still does have a year left on his Broncos contract, so the option is there if he wishes to continue on for one more year.
