Former Indianapolis Colts quarterback great Peyton Manning has reportedly been cleared of any wrongdoing following the NFL’s investigation based on an Al-Jazeera report in December that accused him of taking HGH and other potential performance-enhancing drugs:
While the initial report was met with nationwide skepticism and Manning vehemently denied such accusations, it’s good to know that the freshly retired quarterback will leave no lingering legacy or question marks–having played the game at such a high level for 18 magical seasons.
The former #1 overall pick of the 1998 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts is one of the best quarterbacks to ever play in the NFL. Manning starred in 14 seasons and 4 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos respectively.
Manning just finished his illustrious career as a 2x Super Bowl Champion, Super Bowl MVP, 5x Most Valuable Player, 7x 1st-Team All-Pro, 3x 2nd-Team All-Pro, and 14x Pro Bowler.
Not only that, but Manning remains the NFL’s all-time passing touchdown leader (539), passing yards leader (71,940), and 2nd in passing completions (6,125).
Having just gone out on top as a Super Bowl 50 Champion with the Denver Broncos, he gets to ride off into the sunset with this matter apparently behind him and his name cleared of any wrongdoing.
