Peyton Manning has no plans to retire

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has no intentions of retiring.

Manning, 38, is heading toward the end of his 17th season.

He's undergone four previous neck surgeries.

Manning said he definitely plans on playing next season.

"I have not thought about those circumstances at all," Manning said. "I certainly plan on being back if the Broncos would have me, but at this point I'm kind of thinking about Oakland. I know this is the time where conversations about what head coaches are going to return and I guess for some reason I get to fall into that category because I'm closer to the same age as some of the coaches. I have no plans along those lines [of retiring]. I'm enjoying playing, I'm looking forward to Sunday's game and hopefully the game to follow that.''

Manning has 39 touchdown passes this season.

The Broncos expect Manning to play for a long time.
