This also contributed to the Broncos being eliminated early from the playoffs despite being heavily favored against the Indianapolis Colts.
Manning has met with the Broncos front office to discuss his future, but he has still not made a decision on whether he will retire.
The future Hall of Fame quarterback would be 39 years old next time he takes the field if he were to return for the 2015 season.
The Broncos owe Manning $19 million in salary if he returns, and he has two years remaining on his Broncos contract.
Although the end of his 2014 season was a disappointment, Manning broke records in the 2013 season by throwing for 5,477 yards and 55 touchdown passes while taking the Broncos to the Super Bowl.
The quarterback is expected to go through a physical exam and decide whether he wants to play an 18th season in the NFL soon.
