Peyton Manning will officially retire from the NFL on Monday. The Denver Broncos announced the decision on Sunday morning. There is no doubt that in five short years, he will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He is one of the greatest quarterbacks of the modern era and has earned the respect of not only his teammates, but all players around the league.
Here are the social media reactions from just a few San Francisco 49ers players in regards to the news of his retirement.
What a fuckin HONOR it was to get to just shake his hand! You made this game fun to watch and you're a funny fuckin dude! Salute Sheriff! #ATRUEFUCKINGOAT #seriouslyafunassdudetobearound #iregretyounotsigningmygamehelmet #sopissedimissedmyfuckingchance #whydoialwayslooklikeanidoitwhenimeetfamouspeople
Manning leaves the NFL as a champion having won Super Bowl 50 over the Carolina Panthers back in February. The game took place at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, which is the home of the 49ers.
