INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Former Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning will be eligible for the NFL Hall of Fame beginning in 2021.
If selected, Manning would join former Colts Marvin Harrison, Edgerrin James, Tony Dungy and Bill Polian.
James got in this year, while Reggie Wayne, who was in his first year of eligibility, didn’t.
Manning was drafted by the Colts in 1998 and played with the team until his release after the 2011 season. He played with the Denver Broncos for another four seasons. Manning retired after the 2015 season.
The former NFL quarterback won two Super Bowls, one with each team, and was awarded with the NFL MVP five times.
Other first time Hall of Fame players include former Oakland Raiders and Green Bay Packers defensive back Charles Woodson and former Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson.
