Peyton Manning‘s Super Bowl 50 victory over the Carolina Panthers was indeed his last rodeo.

The five-time NFL MVP will announce his retirement during a news conference Monday at the Denver Broncos‘ headquarters, a source familiar with the quarterback’s decision told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.

History will show the quarterback played 18 seasons, made four Super Bowl trips with two titles, set a mountain of records and earned a place on football’s Mount Rushmore. He will retire as the NFL’s all-time leader in passing touchdowns (539), passing yards (71,940) and quarterback wins (186, tied with Brett Favre).

Manning, who played 14 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, was a first-ballot Hall­ of­ Famer­-in­-waiting before spinal fusion surgery caused him to miss the 2011 season. He went to the Broncos as a free agent in 2012 and authored the most prolific season of any quarterback in history in 2013. The Broncos made two Super Bowl trips in Manning’s final three seasons.
