From to , he improved the fortunes of the struggling Colts franchise and helped transform them into consistent playoff contenders. During his tenure as starting quarterback, Manning led the team to eight division championships, two AFC championships, and one Super Bowl title, the franchise's first in over three decades, as well as their first since relocating to Indianapolis. After undergoing neck surgery that forced him to miss the entire season, Manning was released by the Colts and signed with the Broncos. Serving as the team's starting quarterback from to , he contributed to the Broncos reaching the top of their division each year and his playing career concluded with a victory in Super Bowl Manning holds many NFL records, including touchdown passes , AP MVP awards 5 ,  Pro Bowl appearances 14 , 4,yard passing seasons 14 ,   single-season passing yards 5, in ,  single-season passing touchdowns 55 in ,  tied for most First-Team All Pros for a quarterback with 7, and is second in career passing yards 71, A two-time Super Bowl winner and the most valuable player of Super Bowl XLI, Manning is also the only quarterback to start the Super Bowl for two franchises more than once each, with different coaches at each Super Bowl start Dungy , Caldwell , Fox , Kubiak , and the only starting quarterback to win a Super Bowl with two franchises.

Much of the language and final details in the contract can remain on the table until the deal actually is signed, according to La Canfora. None of this is big enough to preclude a deal, however, the final language on the injury waiver still could change somewhat between now and the actual signing.
