It had been speculated for some time that Manning, who led the Denver Broncos to last month’s Super Bowl win and holds numerous NFL records, would call it quits. See celebrity reactions below!

Rob Lowe noted, “Peyton Manning’s farewell speech: a clinic on class, gratitude, humor, intellect and emotion. Football’s GOAT ambassador moves on. #18.” Patrick Schwarzenegger expressed, “Farewell to my favorite player. League won’t be the same. So long Sheriff.” Meanwhile, Chad Michael Murray suggested, “Congratulations #PeytonManning on an incredible career! U changed the game forever. Now go get to coaching!”

Holly Robinson Peete tweeted, “When a player retires from sports- it’s deep. Very deeeeep. Really hard for them to describe what they are feeling.” Former NFL running back Emmitt Smith wished his peer, “Congratulations on your retirement. You played an integral role as a Colt, then Bronco and one of the greatest to play the game.” And former wide receiver Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson simply stated, “Peyton Manning is retiring,” but added an emoji of a goat, in reference to the sports term meaning “Greatest Of All Time.” Gossip Cop will update as more stars react to Manning’s retirement.
