Peyton Manning sticks with No. 18

The Denver Broncos have dusted off No. 18.

Thanks to Frank Tripucka. Last week, Tripucka, 84, said his number had been retired long enough and he’d gladly let Peyton Manning wear the number if the Broncos signed Manning.

Manning is a Bronco and No. 18 is his.

Manning wore No. 18 in his 14 seasons in Indianapolis and the team retired the number when he was released earlier this month. There had been talk Manning would wear his college number, No. 16, in his new spot.

But No. 18 it is.
