Peyton Manning's future has just become a little more clear after the latest comments from new Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak.

Commenting on whether or not he wants Peyton Manning to return, Kubiak said that the Broncos are desperate for the future Hall of Fame quarterback to remain with the franchise for the 2015 NFL season.

Expected to return

As yet, the Broncos and Manning have yet to come to a decision on the matter of the signal caller's future, but Kubiak told the Denver Post today that he's expecting Manning to return.

"I'm expecting him to come back," Kubiak told the Denver Post. "We want to play with him. This organization has won a lot of games with him and we want to get back and do it again. Expecting him to come back."

Why the hold up?

Broncos' executive vice president John Elway infamously said when Denver acquired Manning that he had no plan B should the veteran star QB get injured.

There is still no plan B for the Broncos now, which makes the slow process of deciding Manning's future all the more bizarre. However, Kubiak has a different view.

"I don't think there's any hold up at all," Kubiak said. "He and John are working through the process. That's been the plan all along, the way I understand it."

Renegotiation of contract likely

The truth of the matter is both parties want Manning to return, but it's highly likely that the Broncos and Elway want to renegotiate Manning's contract for 2015, with the Post speculating as much.

"It's possible the Broncos will look at restructuring Manning's contract that calls for a $19 million salary in 2015 with a cap figure of $21.5 million," the Post reported. "Then again, the Broncos went through the trouble of flying Manning in on Bowlen's private plane, only to ask for a pay reduction? That wouldn't be in the re-recruitment textbook."
