The future of Peyton Manning is one of the hottest topics in the National Football League right now, with no one really sure if 'The Sheriff' will be coming back or not. 

The Denver Broncos quarterback won Super Bowl 50 against the Carolina Panthers last night and many expected that to be Manning's last ever game of pro football before riding off into the sunset and retirement.

However, Manning is still yet to make a decision and his own agent has now come out and said that even he hasn't been told if Peyton is going to retire or not. 

Speaking in an appearance on Sirius XM NFL Radio, Manning's agent - Tom Condon - revealed that Manning hasn’t told him if he plans to drop the curtain on his career and that he'll probably find out when everyone else does.

“Basically, I don’t ask him,” Condon said. “I know that he’s going to tell me when he’s made a decision."

"The closest he’s got to disclosing any of his intentions was that he said he just wanted to take his time and make sure and he said ‘I really like to play.’ I said ‘I know the feeling.'”

Manning has to make a decision soon, though, because leaving it too late would be potentially catastrophic for the Broncos. 

The new NFL season technically starts next Wedensday, which is when the veteran quarterback's salary for next season becomes guaranteed. Manning's base salary is a whopping $19million next season and his cap hit comes in at $21.5million. 

So, a decision needs to be made and soon. At the moment, the smart money seems to be trending towards Manning going out on a high of a second Super Bowl win, but anything could happen in the next week.
