manningx-largePeyton Williams Manning (born March 24, 1976) is one of the most talk about player in the National Football League (NFL) and I could say super bowl. He played for the Indianapolis Colts for fourteen seasons from 1998 to 2011 and next season he will play for Denver Broncos as football quarterback.

He played in college football at University of Tennessee, leading the Volunteers to the 1997 SEC Championship in his senior season.  He was chosen by the Indianapolis Colts with the first overall pick in the 1998 NFL Draft. From 1998 to 2010, he led the Colts to seven AFC South division championships, two AFC championships, and to a Super Bowl championship (Super Bowl XLI).

he was not able to play for the 2011 season due to surgery that he has to alleviate neck pain and arm weakness he dealt with during the previous few seasons before signing a five-year, $90 million contract extension with the Colts in July 2011. IN September 2011 he underwent a much more serious second surgery: a level one cervical fusion procedure.

He was released by the Colts on March 7, 2012, and after an almost two-week period where he visited with and worked out for several NFL teams, he signed with the Denver Broncos on March 20, 2012.

He is married to Ashley Manning. See picture below.

We will see in him in action on the 2012 season and hope to see him in Super Bowl 47 if their team goes to the finals.
