Early Life

Peyton Manning was born on March 24, 1976 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Peyton is the older brother of New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, and the son of former NFL quarterback Archie Manning. Manning went to Isidore Newman School in New Orleans where he played football and was named the Gatorade Circle of Champions National Player of the Year. While attending school, he wore the #18 jersey in honor of his older brother, Cooper Manning, who had to give up football due to a spinal condition. Manning was an extremely sought after high school player and was recruited by over 60 top-notch colleges.


Peyton Manning began his professional football career when he was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts as the first overall pick in 1998 after an impressive college football career at the University of Tennessee (many fans were surprised he didn't pick the Ole Miss Rebels, for whom his father had played.) Manning was picked by the Colts as the first overall pick in the 1998 NFL draft. He played with the Colts from 1988-2010. Reportedly, Manning memorized the Colts' playbook in one week after he was drafted. In 2012, he was able to precisely recall details of a specific play he had used 16 years prior. Manning helped transform the struggling Colts into consistent playoff contenders. During his time with the Colts, Manning led them to eight division championships, two AFC championships, and in 2006 Peyton led the Colts to a Super Bowl victory against the Chicago Bears. In 2009, he made his second Super Bowl appearance but the team lost to The Saints, who won their first Super Bowl in team history. In 2011, Manning was forced to sit out an entire season after he underwent neck surgery. He was subsequently released from the Colts and signed with the Denver Broncos.

From 2012-2015, Manning served as the Bronco's starting quarterback. He helped the Broncos clinch their division each year. In 2016, Peyton made his third Super Bowl appearance, and the Broncos claimed victory over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50. Shortly after their big win, on March 7, 2016, Manning announced his retirement after 18 seasons. In October 2017, the Colts unveiled a bronze statue of Manning outside Lucas Oil Stadium in a ceremony attended by hundreds of fans. Manning was then inducted into the Indianapolis Colts Ring of Honor.

Peyton Manning is largely considered to be one of the best NFL quarterbacks of all time. To date, Peyton is the NFL record holder for most consecutive seasons with over 4,000 yards passing and most total seasons with 4,000 or more yards passing in a career. Over his career, Peyton has received dozens of accolades including being a 13 time Pro-Bowl selection and five-time AP NFL Most Valuable Player. He also won nine total ESPY Awards over the course of his career.

Peyton and Eli Manning played against each other three times in their pro careers. The encounters were nicknamed The Manning Bowl. The first one was in September 2006. The second Manning Bowl was in 2010 and the third and final Bowl took place in September 2013. Two were with the Colts and one was with the Broncos, and Peyton's team took victory over Eli's each time.

Peyton Manning Salary

When he was on the Denver Broncos, Peyton earned $18 million per year in base salary. He also had the ability to earn millions more in bonuses and incentives. Outside of sports, Peyton earns an additional $25 million per year from endorsements, bringing his total annual income to $43 million.

In July 2011, Peyton signed a five year $90 million contract with The Colts that made him the highest-paid football player in the league at the time. Unfortunately Peyton was injured before the start of the 2011 season and was not able to play in a single game. After months of rumors, on March 7th 2012, Peyton Manning was let go by the Indianapolis Colts which made him a free agent to seek new offers. He soon signed a new $96 million contract with The Denver Broncos. Because of Peyton's past injuries, he took no signing bonus with The Broncos and was subject to a full physical every year before getting paid.

Manning was accused of sexual harassment by trainer Jamie Ann Naughbright in 1996, during his time playing for the University of Tennessee. He denied the claims and was quoted in his book as saying his behavior towards Naughtbright was "crude, maybe, but harmless". Naughtright settled with the university for $300,000. Peyton discussed Naughtright in his book in an ill manner, and she filed a defamation suit against him in 2002.
