Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay wished Manning well on Tuesday.
"I congratulate Peyton as he heads to a tremendous organization in the Denver Broncos," Irsay said in a statement. "We wish him nothing but the best as he continues his Hall of Fame career."
Manning and Irsay announced March 7 that the Colts would release Manning after 13 seasons with the Colts. Manning has been visiting with other NFL teams since then.
