Peyton Manning Says Tom Brady Apologized After Taking a Jab at Him
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) – Peyton Manning says Tom Brady apologized to him – unnecessarily – after taking a shot at him in recently released emails.
Brady’s exchange with a childhood friend was contained in documents released as part of the NFLPA’s lawsuit on behalf of Brady seeking to quash his four-game suspension.
In it, Brady wrote: "I’ve got another 7 or 8 years. He has 2."
Manning said after Wednesday’s practice that Brady was just joining the public conversation speculating about when he’ll retire.
Manning added: "Hey, Tom sent me an apology text that was unnecessary. … No harm, no foul."
Besides, Manning said the barbs were rather innocuous: "Someone said I was roasted. I mean, I’ve been roasted before. That is not a roast."
