His mental and physical preparation helped him win two Super Bowls, one each for the Indianapolis Colts and the Denver Broncos.
He’s also a five-time league MVP, two-time Offensive Player of the Year, and seven-time First-Team All-Pro.
The second-generation player also made 14 Pro Bowls and led the league in passing yards, touchdowns, passer rating, and completion percentage at least twice.
The Tennessee alumnus achieved so much throughout 18 seasons that he had arguably one of the shortest induction pitches into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
All Colts writer Mike Chappell said in 13 seconds was: “Peyton Manning. I would drop my laptop but I’m not going to do that, so just pretend that you see me dropping the mic. End of discussion.”
But while he is among the all-time leaders in every meaningful statistic for quarterbacks, there’s one thing he lags behindin : social media.
However, that has changed when the Broncos’ official Twitter account announced Manning’s Instagram baptism.
🗣 OMAHA, OMAHA — Peyton Manning's on Instagram!
— Denver Broncos (@Broncos) March 24, 2022
Comically, Manning said on the brief video, “Hey guys, check it out. Just made my first TikTok.”
As of writing, there’s only one post on Manning’s Instagram which is a 43-year-old video of him playing backyard football with his family.
Further along the video, Manning was seen complaining to his father Archie, saying “He can’t grab by the neck.”
Another Money Maker For Manning
Aside from his businesses and endorsements, Manning can use his Instagram account to promote other products.
Once he has millions of followers, brands would likely engage Manning regarding marketing opportunities on Instagram.
One Instagram post might earn him thousands, if not millions, of dollars because he’s a reliable endorser.
His comical side also makes him an entertaining character.
