The story of the secret meeting between Tom Brady, Peyton Manning .
The rivalry between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning isn’t as fierce as we once thought it was. In fact, they seemed to be close friends in secret. Back in the late 2000s, they met during the offseason and swapped ideas in an epic, clandestine meeting of the minds. They didn’t hang out for long — just a few days — but they shared notes and covered expansive topics about living life as an elite NFL quarterback. While neither quarterback has ever discussed the meeting, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback coach Clyde Christensen made the big reveal. He worked with Manning in Indianapolis and will work with Brady in 2020.
