Peyton Manning wants to rewrite the NFL record book, and apparently that’s one of the reason he plans to play in 2015.
NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported Sunday morning that the Denver Broncos expect Manning to continue playing next season. A big reason for Manning’s desire to play at least another season centers around Manning want to break just about every passing record in NFL history.
Most specifically, it would seem Manning wants to break two of Brett Favre’s records.
“Peyton Manning is so in tune with his legacy that he wants to own all the records,” Rapoport said Sunday morning on NFL Network. “He is behind Brett Favre in two key ones: quarterback wins and passing yards. Within one season, he could hit both of those milestones. So expect Peyton Manning to play at least next year.”
However, things could change if Manning and the Broncos win the Super Bowl.
“The only caveat is that if they win a Super Bowl, he can go out on top and that caps his legacy.”
Manning enters play Sunday trailing Favre by just 3,962 passing yards and 12 wins. Manning would be 39 years old by the start of the 2015 season.
