INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning told close friends he expects to retire after Sunday’s Super Bowl game, according to NFL.com.

The former Colts QB reportedly told New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick “this might be my last rodeo” following the AFC Championship Game.

“The reality is he let the cat out of the bag a little bit,” NFL analyst Ian Rapoport said. “I also know he has told close friends that he expects this to be his last game as well.”

If he does plan to retire after the big game, the announcement could come at any time.
