Russell Wilson’s letter to Peyton Manning

While Peyton Manning hasn’t officially announced whether or not he’s retiring, Russell Wilson wrote a brief but heartfelt letter to Manning and posted it on The Players’ Tribune, a site where player’s can express themselves in their own words.

Here’s an excerpt, along with a picture Wilson included of himself as a young high school quarterback at camp, as only our favorite QB can say it:

“You inspired the kid in the green shirt.

But most of all …

You inspired me to love the game.

Thanks, Peyton.”
