The Indianapolis Colts released four-time league MVP Peyton Manning on Wednesday, NPR reports.
According to CNN, Manning plans to continue playing in the NFL, although it is uncertain as to which team will claim him.
"I don't want to retire... Nobody loves playing quarterback more than me," Manning said.
In a press conference with Colts owner Jim Irsay, Manning said circumstances had brought his time with the Colts to an end, despite both the wishes of him and Irsay that things could have worked out differently, CNN reports.
According to CNN, the Colts would have owed Manning a $28 million bonus if he'd remained on their roster past Wednesday.
ESPN reports following his release, Peyton Manning's representative has been contacted by 12 different teams including the Dolphins, Broncos, Cardinals and Seahawks.
