Four-time MVP quarterback Peyton Manning has agreed to a five-year, $96 million contract with the Denver Broncos, the Denver Post is reporting.
The Post also says Manning's deal includes "injury protection for the Broncos."
Manning arrived in Denver this morning and will be introduced at a 1 p.m. news conference. He reportedly has also received permission from long-ago Denver quarterback Frank Tripucka to wear No. 18 in Denver. The number had been retired by the Broncos.
