Peyton Manning plans on continuing his NFL playing career in 2015.
According to three trustworthy sources, Manning wants to return to the Broncos, but won't and can't make a final decision until he takes an annual physical examination mandated by his contract.
The test results weren't known until March last season.
The Broncos have asked Manning to inform them of his plans by March 9, which is the day before teams must exercise their rights on veteran players under contract.
Manning is due $19 million next season.
