Former Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has been named a semifinalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
At the time of his retirement, the New Orleans native was the NFL’s all-time leader in both passing yards and passing touchdowns. Manning appeared in four Super Bowls during his 18-year career, winning Super Bowl 41 with the Colts and retiring after holding the Lombardi Trophy at the end of Super Bowl 50 with Denver.
This is Manning’s first year of eligibility for the hall of fame. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame back in 2017.
