A University of Tennessee football legend is expected to throw in the towel after 18 seasons in the NFL.

The Denver Broncos are holding a press conference at noon Monday where Peyton Manning is expected to officially announce his retirement.  

This comes a month after a big win at Super Bowl 50 with the Broncos.

His first Super Bowl win was with the Indianapolis Colts in 2006. 

With two Super Bowl rings, he's the only quarterback to lead two separate teams to victories. 

Manning is also one of two quarterbacks to beat all 32 teams in the NFL. The only other guy to do that is Brett Favre.

The five-time NFL MVP has been suffering from some health concerns.

He's had four neck surgeries and he has battled hip and foot injuries the past two seasons.

He'll leave the sport as the NFL's all-time leader in passing yards and touchdowns.

Broncos General Manager John Elway issued a statement over the weekend congratulating Peyton on his “Hall of Fame career.”

As for what's next for Peyton Manning? There's been speculation that he could work for an NFL team like the Titans or the Browns.
