Peyton Manning will return to Denver Broncos in 2015 says Tony Dungy

Peyton Manning's future with the Denver Broncos is up in the air, but quotes from one NFL legend may hold the key.

Tony Dungy, a two-time Super Bowl winning head coach turned NFL analyst - spoke to the Associated Press yesterday and said that he believes the star quarterback will be returning to Mile High next year for at least one season.

Dungy worked with Manning when he was head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, it was with Dungy in charge that Manning won his one and only Super Bowl, and he gave an insight into Manning's future.

He'll Be Back

Dungy revealed that unless Manning's neck is seriously starting to worsen, he'll be leading the Broncos offense with the number 18 on his back in 2015.

"My gut feeling is that he'll be back unless he really has a health-related problem," Dungy said. "He enjoys the team. He enjoys his teammates. I think he really wants to come back and play well and not let that be the last game of his career."

Manning was still in top form at the start of last season, he passed Brett Favre to become the NFL's all-time passing-touchdown leader with 530 career scores while throwing for 4,727 yards and 39 touchdowns in 2014.

The 38-year old is due to make $19 million guaranteed if he is still on the team come March 9th, so it seems more than likely that we will find out his decision before then.
