Free agent quarterback Peyton Manning will play for the Denver Broncos, the team announced Tuesday.

“This is truly a special football environment, and I’m glad to be a part of it,” Manning said at a news conference where the Broncos made the announcement.

“I haven’t had a whole time to breathe. This happened Monday morning,” Manning said of his decision to join the Broncos.

He said he talked to a number of NFL teams before agreeing to a contract with Denver.

“I’m proud to be a Denver Bronco,” he said.

“It felt strange being a new locker room. I haven’t been anywhere else,” said the quarterback.

Manning was released earlier this year by the Indianapolis Colts, the only team for which he’s played in his 14-year pro career. In the subsequent weeks, the Super Bowl XLI victor — who has been named the National Football League’s Most Valuable Player a record four times — has been hotly sought after by several teams.

He did not play during the 2011 season after having surgery to repair a neck injury, and he ended his career with the Colts this month in an emotional news conference.

Jim Irsay, the Colts’ owner and chief executive officer, said in a statement Tuesday morning he congratulates Manning “as he heads to a tremendous organization in the Denver Broncos. We wish him nothing but the best as he continues his Hall of Fame career.”

On Monday, indications were the Broncos were the only ones negotiating with Manning, deflating several other teams. The Miami Dolphins, Washington Redskins, San Francisco 49ers, Tennessee Titans and Arizona Cardinals were said to be among the others interested in signing Manning.

Several Denver Broncos players expressed excitement Monday that Manning had picked their team to join.

Running back Lance Ball wrote “Wow!” on his Twitter feed, while offensive lineman Ryan Clady tweeted, “Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

“It makes you think big,” linebacker Robert Ayers told reporters. “If you look at (it) historically, the teams that won the Super Bowl are teams with a guy like Ben Roethlisberger and Drew Brees and Eli (Manning) and Aaron Rodgers and all those guys. So it definitely makes you confident.”

Linebacker Joe Mays, who officially signed again with the Broncos on Monday, told CNN affiliate KMGH, “We’re definitely going to go for that Super Bowl ring, and we’re going to do whatever it takes. We’ve got the man at quarterback to play for us.”

Titans owner K.S. “Bud” Adams said in a statement that he spoke with Manning on Monday morning.

“I want to thank the whole organization for their efforts in trying to sign Peyton and also to Peyton for the time he put into the process,” he said. “Peyton called me this morning to inform me of his decision and obviously I am disappointed, because I thought we would be a perfect fit.”

The Denver Post, citing an unnamed NFL source, said Manning called former Broncos quarterback John Elway, who is now the team’s executive vice president for football operations, to say he wanted to play for the Broncos.

The arrival in Denver of a superstar of Manning’s stature would raise questions about the fate of Tim Tebow, who became the Broncos starting quarterback last year amid electric fanfare and led the team into the playoffs. Tebow won the Heisman Trophy in 2007, when he played for the University of Florida.

On Friday, Elway traveled to North Carolina to watch Manning practice.

“Watching him throw today was the next step in this important process for our team and Peyton. It was a productive visit and went well,” Elway said on Twitter. “We enjoyed visiting with Peyton today in N.C. He threw the ball great and looked very comfortable out there.”

September 11, 2011    1:48 p.m.

There appears to be a clear changing of the guard in the AFC South.

Without an injured Peyton Manning, the perennial division champion Colts
were simply dreadful and the playoff-starved Houston Texans looked like true
contenders in a 34-7 rout to open the season at Reliant Stadium.

Matt Schaub threw for 220 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions for the
Texans (1-0), who dominated without injured running back Arian Foster. The NFL’s
leading rusher from a year ago sat out because of a hamstring issue, but was
clearly not missed as Houston turned two Indianapolis turnovers into a pair of
first-quarter touchdowns and built a 34-0 halftime lead en route to their second
straight season-opening win over the Colts.

Ben Tate ran for 116 yards
and a touchdown for Houston, while Derrick Ward started in Foster’s place and
added 39 yards on 11 carries with a score.

The Texans were considered a
playoff contender last year and opened with a 34-24 win over Indianapolis on the
way to a 4-2 start. They lost eight of 10 to finish at 6-10 and now enter their
10th year of existence with pressure on head coach Gary Kubiak to earn that
elusive first postseason berth.

Indianapolis bounced back from that loss
to open last season and went on to capture the AFC South crown for the seventh
time in eight years. Of course Manning was there to quickly help right the ship.
That won’t be the case anytime soon this year, as Manning is sidelined
indefinitely and could miss the entire season after undergoing his second neck
procedure of the year earlier this week.

Kerry Collins, lured out of a
brief retirement in late August because of Manning’s neck problems, was not
nearly a capable replacement. He completed 16-of-31 passes for 197 yards with a
touchdown for the Colts (0-1), who have lost consecutive season openers for the
first time since 1997 and ’98. The Colts were 3-13 in ’97 and selected Manning
with the first pick in the ’98 draft, then also went 3-13 in the superstar
quarterback’s rookie season.

Manning went on to start 227 consecutive
games, including playoffs, before sitting out Sunday.

Collins got his
first chance behind center in good field position at his own 40 after Schaub had
a pass tipped and picked off by Melvin Bullitt. The Colts barely crossed
midfield before punting it away and it was all Houston from there.

Schaub directed a 13-play, 73-yard march that ended in a 25-yard Neil
Rackers field goal and the Texans followed by converting two fumbles into
touchdowns.

Collins had the ball knocked out of his hand on the first
play after the ensuing kickoff and Houston took over at the Indianapolis 12.
Three plays later, Ward banged into the end zone from a yard away for a 10-0
lead.

The next Indianapolis possession also lasted all of one play, as
Collins never got the exchange from center Jeff Saturday and Houston recovered
at the Colts’ 18. Again it took just three plays, and Tate scored from the two
for a 17-0 cushion with 1:41 left in the first quarter.

Houston then
drove 89 yards on 10 plays with its next possession and increased the advantage
to 24 early in the second quarter when Andre Johnson caught a tipped pass in the
end zone for a four-yard score. Rackers added 29-yard field goal before Jacoby
Jones put the exclamation point on the decisive half with a 79-yard punt return
for a touchdown.

The Texans outgained the Colts, 259-72, during the
opening 30 minutes and had 19 first downs to Indy’s five.

Houston didn’t
do anything offensively in the second half, although a promising drive early in
the fourth quarter ended inside the Indianapolis 10 with a Gary Brackett
interception.

Adam Vinatieri missed a 37-yard field goal try on the
ensuing Colts possession and Tate followed with a fumble to give Indianapolis
the ball once again. This time, Collins took advantage with a six-yard TD strike
to Reggie Wayne, who made a one-handed catch in the back of the end zone.

Wayne finished with seven catches for 106 yards in defeat.

Game Notes

Collins surpassed Joe Montana (40,551) for 10th place in all-time
passing yards. He now has 40,638 career yards…Joseph Addai led the Colts with
39 rushing yards…The Texans outrushed the Colts, 167-64…Johnson finished
with seven catches for 95 yards…Houston held the ball for nearly 37 minutes.

[When his number (50 (3 + 24 +1+9+7+6 = 50)) comes up, that’s when he gets to live/experience what he is here to live/experience.  So, unfortunately, today was his day.]
