Peyton Manning honored with Colts number retirement, statue built outside Lucas Oil Stadium

No other future Indianapolis Colts player will wear number 18 now that Peyton Manning’s number has been retired with the franchise.

Manning will also be honored by a statue of his likeness build outside of Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Indy Colts, owner Jim Irsay said during a news conference Friday, March 18.

“It was my honor and privilege to play for this organization for 14 years. I’ll always be a Colt,” Manning said during the press conference.

The announcements came a little over a week after Manning retired from the NFL. Manning played for the Colts from 1998 to 2011 and the Denver Broncos from 2012 to 2015.

He won a Super Bowl with both teams, most recently in 2016 against the Carolina Panthers.
