This time, the news spreads out further than Woody Paige. And take a look at who first broke the story:
Filed to ESPN: Five-time NFL MVP Peyton Manning will announce his retirement Monday in Denver per source familiar with the QB's decision
— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) March 6, 2016
Mortensen, as you’re likely aware, is battling throat cancer, and had not been heard from since he began that battle on January 16. If Manning chose Mortensen to be the one to break the news, that may have been the most classy and awesome way to do it.
