One of the greatest eras in NFL history is coming to a close. Peyton Manning will be released Wednesday by the Indianapolis Colts, according to multiple reports, ending a months-long saga of what the franchise would do with the league's only four-time most valuable player.

Reporting from Denver -- In his introductory news conference as the new quarterback of the Denver Broncos, Peyton Manning said Tuesday he has a long way to go to be where he wants to be health-wise, but emphasized he was an open book with the teams courting him. Ultimately, he chose the Broncos over San Francisco and Tennessee. "In the end, I felt the Broncos were just a great fit," Manning said.

The Denver Broncos have called a news conference for noon PDT today, presumably to introduce Peyton Manning as their new quarterback. On Monday, Manning instructed his agent to negotiate a deal with the Broncos, with the four-time Most Valuable Player having chosen them over Tennessee and San Francisco. Manning is expected to command a contract in the neighborhood of $95 million over five years. The Denver Post reported today that Manning was considering calling Frank Tripucka, the first quarterback in Broncos history, to request the use of jersey No. 18. That was Tripucka's number, which the club had retired.
