Peyton Manning has yet to announce whether he will bring an end to his legendary NFL career after winning Super Bowl 50, but you can count Denver Broncos teammate C.J. Anderson among those who believe he should hang up his cleats.

The running back joined Friday's edition of "NFL Total Access" and said he believes Manning should retire on top after capturing the second Lombardi Trophy of his career.

"I think so, man," Anderson said when asked if Manning should retire, according to Tyler Dragon of NFL.com. "Let him ride off into the sunset in the correct way. What else does he have to do? He has five MVPs, two Super Bowl rings, he's first in every statistical category. My man 18, man, walk off, man ... it was a pleasure one-eight."

It's expected that Manning will take Anderson's advice following a season where he consistently looked a shell of his former self, although the 39-year-old has said he will take a few weeks to consider his future.
