By this time next week, we will know who the Super Bowl 50 champions are and we will have officially entered the off-season once again.

Yet again, it is shaping up to be an off-season filled with retirement rumours surrounding Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.

Mind made up

When Manning led the Broncos to Super Bowl XLVIII and lost spectacularly to the Seattle Seahawks, many thought that would be his last game.

Now here we are, two years later and once again Manning is getting set to play in the biggest game of football.

However rumours of his retirement are louder than ever this year and it now looks like he has revealed his future to some close friends. is reporting that Manning has already made his decision to retire following Super Bowl 50.

"The reality is he let the cat out of the bag a little bit ... I also know he has told close friends that he expects this to be his last game as well." - Ian Rapoport on Manning's retirement

The rumours that the Super Bowl would be Manning's last hurrah really gained weight in the moments following their AFC Championship win.

Manning was quoted as saying to New England Patriots' head coach Bill Belichick that the Super Bowl could be his last rodeo.

Since then, everyone has speculated that he will retire after the match and it now looks incredibly likely that Sunday's game will be the last in the career of Peyton Manning.

Stepping aside

With Manning seemingly set to depart the NFL, the question becomes who is the future quarterback of the Denver Broncos?

Brock Osweiler served as an effective replacement when Manning was injured during this season, but he is set to become a free agent this off-season.

Osweiler proved his quality this season and could now result in somewhat of a bidding war for him during free agency - if the Broncos allow him to get that far.
