Matt Ryan shares awesome Peyton Manning story

Matt Ryan was officially introduced as the new quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday. He was, of course, asked some questions about Peyton Manning, and Ryan shared a great story about one of his past interactions with the Hall of Famer.

Ryan said Manning has been a great mentor for him and that he is honored to follow in his footsteps. He also revealed that Peyton was one of the first people to call him after the Atlanta Falcons punched their ticket to the Super Bowl in 2016. Ryan was out celebrating with his teammates, but Manning wanted to get to work.

Manning is a football junkie, and that was the year after he retired. He was probably itching to be a part of Super Bowl preparation any way he could. He may have been even more excited since the Falcons were getting ready to play the New England Patriots and Manning’s longtime rival, Tom Brady.

Ryan will have a great opportunity to contend with the Colts next season. Manning is still close with many members of the organization, so he should continue to be a great resource for Ryan.
