Two-time Super Bowl champion Peyton Manning retired from the NFL last week, and the team that brought him into the league announced its plans to honor No. 18 Friday.

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay told reporters that the organization will soon begin construction on a statue of Manning’s likeness outside of Lucas Oil Stadium, where “fans can leave cans of Budweiser.”

The Colts also plan on retiring Manning’s jersey number, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
