Peyton Manning will bid farewell to the Denver Broncos with his official retirement announcement.
No. 18 is scheduled to speak at the Broncos' headquarters in Englewood at 11 a.m. Monday.
Broncos President & CEO Joe Ellis, Executive Vice President of Football Operations and General Manager John Elway and Head Coach Gary Kubiak will join Manning.
"It's huge. It's the end of an era," ESPN's Bob Holtzman told Denver7's Jason Gruenauer on Monday morning. Holtzman was in Indianapolis four years ago when Manning said goodbye to the Colts.
"Four years ago today, that news conference in Indianapolis. I think people -- if you're expecting this to go on all afternoon, it's not going to happen. One thing I remember about Indianapolis is Manning got up there. He spoke for about 2 and a half minutes, he took 10 or 12 questions, and that was it. I've been told today will probably last a half hour at the most... He doesn't seem that comfortable in situations like this, where he has to talk about himself and talk about his feelings. In Indianapolis, he was in a big hurry to wrap that thing up," Holtzman said.
Denver7's sports team and news crews will be at Dove Valley covering every angle of the press conference.
Fans can watch the coverage on TV starting at 11 on Denver7.
We'll also stream the announcement live on TheDenverChannel.com.
This is sure to be an emotional speech from Manning. Tune in beginning at 11.
