While Peyton Manning’s storied career came to a close in Denver, the majority of his Hall of Fame resume was written in Indianapolis.

The Colts plan to honor that legacy with a statue of Manning outside Lucas Oil Stadium.

According to the Associated Press, the Colts have hired Ryan Feeney - a local artist and firefighter - to create the statue of Manning that will be installed outside the stadium next year.

Manning spent 14 seasons with the Colts and led the franchise to its first Super Bowl victory since moving from Baltimore in 1984. In 13 seasons on the field, Manning started 208 straight games for the Colts. He passed for 54,828 yards with 399 touchdowns, 198 interceptions and a completion percentage of 65 percent.

Manning led the Colts to a victory over the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI. He won four league MVP awards, was named to the Pro Bowl 11 times and was a five-time first-team All-Pro during his tenure in Indianapolis.
