Tom Brady posts funny photo with old rival Peyton Manning
Tom Brady and Peyton Manning were two of the biggest rivals in NFL history when both were still playing — at least in the eyes of fans and the media. Patriots fans loved to hate Manning while Colts and Broncos followers loathed Brady, but the two future Hall of Famers never got wrapped up in that off the field.
On Wednesday, Brady provided a great reminder of that when he shared a selfie of him and Manning on social media and joked that “we were friends the whole time.”
Spoiler alert… we were friends this whole time. Always great to see you Peyton! pic.twitter.com/DzscouMxsl

Brady and Manning have never had anything but good things to say about one another, and that is not just because they’re both classy. They developed a genuine friendship over the years, even if Brady was once caught being brutally honest about the end of Manning’s career. Brady has had more success in terms of championships, but he and Peyton have plenty in common. It makes sense that they share a close bond, no matter how weird it may be for football fans.
