Archie: Peyton not retiring

Someone may want to put Archie and Tom Condon in touch with Rob Lowe because they seem to be out of the loop:

“Noooo . . . he ain’t retiring,” Manning’s father Archie told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. “I think he would’ve told me.”

(I’m enjoying the thought of Archie or even Peyton Manning hearing this rumor. “Who said it again? On what?”)

Manning’s agent Tom Condon spoke with NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora. Condon said it was the first he heard of the rumor and he’s heard nothing from Manning about retiring.
