Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning Visited Alabama, Nick Saban To “Learn, So He Could Become Better Player”
What more could Peyton Manning possibly have to learn about playing quarterback? The Denver Broncos star has been in the NFL since 1998. He’s won a Super Bowl, made the Pro Bowl 13 times, been an Associated Press First-Team All-Pro player seven times, and been the AP’s MVP five times. There are still improvements that can be made though, apparently.
Peyton Manning and Broncos coordinator (former Saban GA) Adam Gase recently visited Alabama to share ideas.

Saban says Broncos QB Peyton Manning was in Tuscaloosa to “learn, so he could be a better player.” Very interesting.

Saban: Peyton Manning has been a friend and well respected in the league. … His dad has been a friend of mine for a long, long time.

No NFL quarterback has had a more successful career than Manning, and perhaps no college coach has had a better run than Saban has had at Alabama. Perhaps Saban’s NFL stint with the Miami Dolphins would have gone better if he had a quarterback like Manning to coach.
