Former University of Tennessee quarterback Peyton Manning will be honored by the Denver Broncos.

Manning, who played for Denver from 2012-15, will join the team’s Ring of Fame. He becomes the 35th member in the Ring of Fame.

In Manning’s four seasons with Denver, the Broncos won 50 regular season games, four AFC West titles, two AFC championships and Super Bowl 50.

In 2013, the former Volunteer, who has his number retired at Tennessee, set a single-season passing record with 5,477 passing yards and threw 55 touchdown passes. Denver scored a league-high 606 points and remains the only NFL offense to top 600 points in a single season.

Manning will be enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August.

He was selected by the Indianapolis Colts with the No.1 overall pick in the 1998 NFL draft.

The former Vol was the league’s Most Valuable Player five times and won Super Bowl XLI with the Colts and was the game’s MVP.

He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2017 and enshrined into the the Tennessee Athletics Hall of Fame in 2016.

That same year, he was named the 2016 Tennessean of the Year by the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame.
