According to a photograph tweeted from his former teammate Brandon Stokley, the famous quarterback made the trip to Tampa Bay in a plane that has left most in awe of its grandeur. Traveling alongside Manning on Friday (Feb. 5) was his son, Marshall.
“Peyton and his son Marshall on their way to Tampa Bay Friday!!! Hall of Fame time,” Stokley posted. Check out the photo of Manning and his son below. Now, that’s the way to fly!
Stokley also shared a shot of Manning and Marshall outside the airplane via Twitter. “Father and son. Hall of Fame here we come,” he said with the photo. Check it out below.
Peyton Manning Inducted into NFL Hall of Fame
While watching Super Bowl LV in Tampa Bay on Sunday (Feb. 7) will surely be a part of Peyton Manning’s trip to Florida, he was also there for a more important reason – getting inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame.
Manning’s NFL career is certainly deserving of the Hall of Fame. He played for 18 seasons and retired in 2016. He won two Super Bowls – one with the Indianapolis Colts, the other with the Denver Broncos. As of Sunday afternoon, he is the only quarterback in NFL history to win a Super Bowl with more than one team. (That could change if Tom Brady wins Super Bowl LV with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He has already won Super Bowls while playing for the New England Patriots.)
Stokley also tweeted more photos of Marshall taken during Super Bowl weekend. This time, he was holding T-shirts recognizing his father’s induction into that elite club. One shirt was a Denver Broncos shirt. The other, obviously, was an Indianapolis Colts shirt. Check out those tweets here.
Stokley was a teammate of Peyton Manning’s. He played in the NFL for 15 years and won two Super Bowls.
