Peyton Manning expected to return for next season

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is expected to return for an 18th season, according to ESPN.

A decision is likely as soon as this week.

Manning is convinced that new coach Gary Kubiak will design a scheme that works for him.

Manning will have a checkup on his surgically repaired neck on March 1.

Manning is guaranted $19 million if he's on the roster on March 9, one day before the start of the league year.
