Peyton Manning has reportedly been training in New Orleans with the intent of coming back for another season in 2015, but there are reports that the Denver Broncos may not decide to bring him back.

According to a report from Jason Cole, it isn't a done deal that John Elway and the Broncos will want to bring Manning back next year. It's likely that the Broncos and Manning will come together for another year, but the wear and tear the veteran showed this year is concerning, if nothing else.

Obviously, this won't be an easy decision, but the likely end to it will be Manning coming back for one more year.

Elway has already cleaned house as far as the coaching staff is concerned, agreeing to part ways with John Fox almost immediately after the season ended at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts. That doesn't mean Manning too is going to be out, but it's not like he's going on out on a high note.

Brock Osweiler is their current backup quarterback, and the Broncos are very high on him looking ahead to the future. The young quarterback has a very similar body style to Manning and has been able to learn and study under him. That being said, he might not be ready to be pushed into a starting role on a team that wants to compete for a Super Bowl.

John Elway and the Broncos know that Manning provides the best option to win, but that's only if he's healthy. Manning may not want to quit, but he has to listen to his body and the Broncos have a glass on the door so they can stay on top of what to do moving forward.
