Peyton Manning, the 14-year NFL veteran who has only played for the Indianapolis Colts his entire career, has decided on becoming a Denver Bronco after considering a host of different teams that sot his services. Although he had to miss out on a huge - $28 million huge – roster pay out this month, his net worth still is formidable at an estimated amount of $232,540,000.
Before he picked Denver, Manning visited the likes of Miami, Nashville, San Fransisco and Phoenix during this episode of the quarterback sweepstakes. Those teams have been desirous of his prodigious accomplishments and the authority of his game. Denver won out - ousting Tim Tebow hopes of the returning savior.

The University of Tennessee graduate has also been named to 11 NFL Pro Bowls, has racked up 11 4,000+ season through the air and it Indianapolis' all-time leading passer and touchdown converter.
It wasn't too long ago that Manning believed that he would play out his career in Indy. In 2011, he signed a five-year, $90 million extension that could have secured his future through the 2015 season, but disaster struck. In May of 2011, Manning went under the knife to alleviate bothersome neck pain. Some four surgeries later, the owners of the Colts exercised their out option in the contract because Manning saw absolute no action the entire 2011-12 season. Until this season, Manning had never missed a professional start.

His younger brother Eli plays for the 2012 NFL Champions New York Giants. Whichever team wins the bonanza of acquiring Peyton Manning, they are bound to up their stock against their rivals while padding his net worth a bit more.
